Ice Cream Topped Waffles with Caramel, Almonds, Plums & Cinnamon

When you have pretty melamine plates you want to dine outdoors at any occasion… breakfast, lunch and dinner time.

All pictured below tableware came, a bit by coincidence, from HomeSense, including the plastic glass and even the tray. The plates are new addition to our collection and they are from new HomeSense al fresco range that my little assistant and I got recently in our local branch. Aren’t they pretty?

And they look even better when used to serve delicious summery dish like the ice cream topped waffles I made for my girls, enjoy!

Replace plums with fresh nectarines or peaches or other seasonal fruits.

If you don’t have ice cream on hand try using whipped cream or thick yogurt instead.

Almond flakes can be substituted with blanched hazelnuts here.
