We love brunch. Almost every week I put on a big brunch for all of the family, and each week I like to mix up what I put out. Brunch is normally a serve yourself bar and is centered around a particular item, for example baked goods, a hot brunch, pancakes and quiche with fresh fruit have made their way onto the brunch table. This time, I put together a waffle bar.
A Spring themed waffle bar is perfect if you are hosting brunch, an afternoon party, or a party at school.
What you need:
- Eggo Homestyle Waffles
- Syrup: maple and chocolate
- Fruit: strawberries, blueberries and banana
- Toppings: sprinkles, candy, coconut, white chocolate chips, powdered sugar
- Whipped cream
It doesn't take much effort to put together a fun, themed bar. With this bar I wanted to go with spring colors such as purple, pink, yellow and blue. I knew I wanted fruit, because it is spring and what better time to pick up seasonal fresh berries. Wandering around Walmart I came across the sprinkles and pastel candy and thought they would be perfect for toppings.
To add a little more color and tie everything into your waffle bar, spruce up any containers that you plan on using such as butter or whipped cream by simply wrapping scrapbook paper around them. It takes just a couple of minutes to cut paper to size, wrap it around like a sleeve and glue the ends.
Flowers are the perfect addition to your spring food table too. They don't need to be anything elaborate and you don't need to spend a fortune. I clipped a few of these out of a vase of flowers that was already in my house.
And don't forget the fresh fruit and powdered sugar. I popped a little confectioners sugar into a metal sifter and put it on a plate, this way the kids could sift their own sugar onto their pancakes, they loved 'making it snow'.
Tip: Don't cook all of the waffles at once and let them get cold. Heat up a couple to get the first person started and then make to order, that way everyone has fresh, hot waffles, ready to put toppings on. Or, even better, let them heat up their own waffles. Kids will love doing this by themselves, from heating their own waffles to choosing their toppings from the waffle bar.
What are your favorite waffle bar toppings? I want to try a savory bar next.
