Vanilla Amaretto Olive Oil Waffles

Puff pastry jam and cheese tarts

Indulge in a weekend morning like no other with the luxuriously decadent Branch & Vines Vanilla Amaretto Olive Oil Waffles. This isn't just breakfast; it's a culinary escape! Start with silky, aromatic vanilla extra-virgin olive oil paired with a splash of amaretto liqueur, weaving an intoxicating tapestry of flavors. The batter, a blend of all-purpose flour and cornstarch, is enriched with the tang of buttermilk, ensuring each bite is light and crispy yet tender within.

As the waffle iron sizzles, whip your egg whites to snowy peaks of perfection, gently folding them into the mix to create a texture as fluffy as clouds in a morning sky. Cook these beauties until golden and crisp, and then—because indulgence knows no bounds—smother them in our the tantalizingly tangy Spiced Peach Bourbon Jam. These waffles aren't just a meal; they are a celebration of flavor, a feast for the senses, and the perfect start to any day. Enjoy the golden luxury of homemade waffles that turn your breakfast table into a gourmet experience.

Breakfast, sweets


  • 2 eggs - separated
  • 2 cups of milk - use buttermilk if you can
  • 1/3 cup Vanilla extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp amaretto liqueur
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • Optional: Spiced Peach Bourbon Jam


Step 1

Separate the eggs into yolks and whites. In one bowl, mix the egg yolks with milk, vanilla extra-virgin olive oil, and amaretto liqueur. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt.

Step 2

In a separate clean bowl, whip the egg whites with sugar until stiff peaks form. Gently stir the yolk mixture into the dry ingredients until just mixed (the batter should be a bit lumpy). Carefully fold the whipped egg whites into the batter, being mindful not to deflate the mixture.

Step 3

Pour the prepared batter into a preheated waffle maker and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the waffles are golden and crisp. While the waffles are cooking, warm up with maple syrup or Spiced Peach Bourbon Jam. Serve the hot waffles topped with the warmed sauce.
