Spice waffles with mulled wine cherries! I love breakfast. I love eating breakfast, especially on weekends when I can get up early and have enough time at hand to make something special. I really enjoy making these waffles for a breakfast or bunch. Do you like using cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. also in January and February? Here in Germany you can buy already prepared spices mixes for gingerbread and I love buying in bulk shortly before Christmas to have the spices also available in January and February. I love making waffles with this spice mix, especially between Christmas and New Year’s when people are on vacation and are more relaxed.
Today I brought along broken-up pancakes, which are called Kaiserschmarren with a nice cherry compote with spices and mulled wine. I would like to take a bite right away. When I moved from the north of Germany to the south, I realized that it was a lot of fun making some of the more southern recipes, you can definitely feel the influence of Austria, which is about one hour away. The Austrian cuisine offers a lot of pastry dishes prepared with flour, eggs, and milk. Once you go hiking in the Alps and are offered Kaiserschmarren at one of the cabins, you will know what I am talking about, it is so amazing. I like this dish also for breakfast or brunch, it is perfect for a cold winter day. I already introduced a Kaiserschmarren recipe on the blog in spring, that one was prepared with rhubarb, but today we are going for the winter edition with warming and spiced cherries.
