Belgian waffles with fluff, crunch, and sweetness

Experience the surprising sensation of serving Belgian waffles with whipped cream cheese. The velvety texture and tangy flavour of the cream cheese are a magnificent match for the waffles, which are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The caramelised pistachios add a wonderful nutty flavour and crunch that pair nicely with the sweet and tender figs. A drizzle of honey ties everything together, ensuring an indulgent treat. Enjoy them with other delectable treats like savoury churros with Castello® pepper whipped cream cheese or seed crackers with Castello® whipped cream cheese and strawberries.

Vary with different toppings

Belgian waffles with creamy, slightly tangy whipped cream cheese taste great with almost any type of fruit. Try it with fresh berries, stone fruit, or indulgent caramelised banana. In a pinch, preserves and jams also work nicely and can even be combined with the whipped cream cheese. For crunch, add nuts like almonds, pecans, or walnuts, toasted coconut flakes, or granola. For a savoury twist, try serving them with crispy bacon for a salty touch to contrast the sweet and creamy flavours. Or increase this sweetness with maple syrup, melted chocolate, or rich caramel sauce. Vary our Belgian waffle recipe and craft personalised moments of indulgence.
