For those of you who aren’t opposed to having cake in the morning, you can now infuse your breakfast with the wonderful light and boozy flavours of tiramisu cake. And why make one waffle when you can make an entire stack of them? Okay, so it’s basically a tiramisu cake made of waffles. But, hey, now you can justify eating tiramisu-flavoured waffles… because it’s breakfast.
We’re sophisticated adults who deserve a little liquor and coffee in the morning. Pinkies up, friends, pinkies up.
What you need for waffles
- 2 cups bisquick
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, include a bit extra for garnish
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons dark rum, optional
- 2 tablespoons strong coffee
What you need for filling
- 1 cup mascarpone cheese
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar, include extra for garnish
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Semisweet chocolate, shaved or dusted
What you do
- Beat mascarpone until light and fluffy in large bowl.
- Mix in heavy cream until mixture starts to form peaks.
- Little by little, beat powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in. Chill in fridge until ready to use again.
- Mix bisquick, milk, egg and vegetable oil until smooth in separate large bowl. Then, mix in other 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla.
- In separate bowl, pour in half of batter. Whisk dark rum, cocoa powder, cinnamon and coffee until combined in original bowl.
- Preheat waffle iron and coat with nonstick spray. Preheat oven to 200F to place waffles in when they’ve been cooked (optional).
- Pour 1/3 of white batter onto iron and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown.
- Set waffle aside and continue making waffles until vanilla batter’s used up. Then, repeat steps 7 and 8 with chocolate batter.
- Stack waffles with generous spoonfuls of mascarpone filling between each one.
- Add filling to top of stack and dust with powdered sugar, cocoa powder or chocolate shavings (or all of them!).
