So, these Thyme Orange waffle, served with a blue berry compote and lots and lots of extra thyme, are the best waffles ever. Honest. Ok maybe only the best waffles for the next two weeks, which as you well know is historic in the food blogger world. 

So many recipes to try, so many new flavours to try, discard, rethink and reinvent, but oh so little time. So yeah for the next two weeks – orange and thyme waffles + blueberry compote + extra thyme = best thing ever.

The kind of waffles that gets me excited throughout the day, because I know I am going to come home and have them for brinner (breakfast for dinner, is soooo totally a thing in my house). But also the ‘I really want a different’ from the usual kind of waffles that I have been wanting to whip up for a while. So yaye, I did it.

Please do feel free to double or triple the recipe to feed that Sunday brunch crowd, those last-minute tea parties and in my case, those friends I am going to rent a cottage with for a whole weekend of catching up and pampering.

Talking of weekends cottages – what is the protocol of sharing the cooking when you are hanging with a bunch of peeps, who all like them their food. I tend to want to take over the kitchen as I like cooking (erm, helloooooo, food blogger over here), and CLEARLY I know what I am doing and I think it is expected of me because of what I do.

I have not yet figured out a way to 1) not take over fully and 2) to politely ask if other people want to actually cook, without sounding like I am trying to palm it off to them. Any ideas? Seriously peeps, throw anything at me, I need your help.

But yeah, back to the thyme and orange waffles that deserve a lot of attention. Because they are soooooooo sooooooo fluffy, herby, citrusy, awesomely, brinner good. Add more thyme or more orange zest according to your taste, and you could easily add in a tablespoon or two or honey as well. The blueberry compote is optional, but good. And the extra thyme, don’t be tempted to skip it. It makes these waffles something special.

How To Make Orange Waffles

  1. Whisk together milk, butter and eggs, orange zest and 1.5 tbsp thyme and set aside.
  2. Mix flour and sugar (if using) in a large bowl and make a hole in the center.
  3. Slowly whisk the milk mixture into the flour to make a batter and don’t worry if there are some lumps.
  4. Cook the waffles according to your waffles maker instructions until all the waffle batter is is finished and set aside somewhere warm.
  5. To make the sauce – Add the blueberries, water and sugar into a small saucepan over medium heat, allow ice to melt, and leave simmering with the pan open, for about 10 mins, stirring occasionally, till the fruits are softened.
  6. Switch off the heat and serve the orange waffles topped with blueberry compote and the extra chopped thyme.

Thyme Waffles Tips

  • Feel free to add extra thyme or orange zest to your taste.
  • You can swap out a bit of the flour for whole wheat flour.
  • You can add some sugar or honey to the waffle batter if you want sweet waffles.

Chocolate Orange Waffles

To make these chocolate orange waffles instead simply mix in some cocoa powder to the waffle batter before cooking.

    Orange, thyme and blueberry sound like an amazing combo! What a creative idea. Looks amazing.

    Hmmm that’s a conundrum! What if you ask them to share their favourite recipe or a special recipe they grew up with? Something that brings out their inner show-off and allows you to take a back seat (and possibly learn a new kitchen trick or two while you’re all at it!)…

    Also – your photography is amazing, these waffles look like they’re right in front of me and I’m very sad that they aren’t! Haha – seriously though, can’t wait to try! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This sounds like an amazing flavor combination. I have to say that I really, really love your photography for this recipe as well – it’s perfect. It makes me wish I were eating these right now!

    I’m going to take your idea and make these next time we go to the “woods”. These pancakes, with the thyme and orange sound so good! The blackberries on top, too.
