Sweet Waffles with Berries, Chocolate, Ice Cream & Coulis… Perfect Treat for Valentines!

So, its nearly Valentines day again. I realise that this can be a sore subject, but honestly, its just another day! I’m not really one for all the Valentines hype as I find the day far too expensive and overpriced, so I usually just stay in with take-out and go out for dinner the day after and its half the price! However, I am all about Valentines food. It’s indulgent, its delicious, and its the perfect excuse for a bit of baking!

I wasn’t really sure what to do this year, but after Andrew James sent me a lovely new Waffle Maker to try out, I knew I couldn’t resist making this a Valentines recipe! Its the perfect amount for two (with a little spare if you’re not feeling as greedy as I) as it makes 4-6 waffles in the Waffle Maker I used! They sent me the Waffle Maker to use, but all views are my own!

The Jamie Oliver recipe I based this one is designed as a Breakfast Waffle recipe really, but I made mine a little sweeter for this purpose. They are perfect for Breakfast if you want to make the effort – I surprised my boyfriend with some the other day and he was very happy unsurprisingly! You can also make them for lunch, just leave out the sugar & vanilla and make them savoury! They’d be ideal with a bit of Bacon & Maple Syrup. (I might go make that after I have finished writing this… major craving.)

I was actually so satisfied with these pictures and how they came out. My new house isn’t the one for taking photos as it doesn’t have as big windows as my Parents house but I loved these. However, I wish there was smell-o-vision or taste-o-vision because these Photos don’t do this justice. They taste INCREDIBLE and oh my days! I only put two on each plate for the photo as it looked better and the plate was less ‘busy’. However, I did eat three waffles myself. So yay! ENJOY!

Sweet Waffles!

Sweet Waffles

  • 175 g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 250 ml Whole Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

To Serve

  • Melted Chocolate
  • Berries
  • Ice-Cream
  • Fruit Coulis
  • ...anything!


  • Add the Flour, Baking Powder and Sugar together in a large bowl and whisk together briefly till evenly distributed.
  • Add in the egg, the Vanilla, and then start slowly pouring the milk in whilst whisking so there aren’t any lumps! I put my bowl on top of a tea-towel or antislip mat so that I can pour with one hand and whisk with the other!
  • Once the mixture is smooth, turn on your Waffle Maker and wait till its at full temperature. Ladle in the batter mixture (Not so much that it overflows! You’ll learn the perfect amount through time…) and cook following your machines instructions!
  • I like mine browner compared to pale, but after a few minutes of cooking without lifting the lid, check to see how they’re doing and go from there!
  • Carefully take your waffles out of the machine, and serve how you like. I served mine with some Melted Chocolate, Clotted Cream Ice Cream, Strawberries, Raspberries, and some Raspberry Coulis! Enjoy!


  • This delightful recipe was inspired by Jamie Oliver!
  • These are best served & eaten immediately – however I’m sure they would last for the day and you could reheat them later!
  • You can buy this amazing Waffle Maker from Andrew James – they have other styles available, but mine is the 4 Slice Waffle Maker with Adjustable Temperature! You can buy it through them, or on Amazon Here!

    Hi Jane
    If I were to use semi-skimmed milk or almond milk, would that affect the batter and taste too much? Thank you

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 19, 2020 at 4:36 pm

      Either should be fine, but generally full-fat milk is much better than semi-skimmed in baking! X

    Hi Jane. I’ve just bought a waffle maker for my birthday… can I refrigerate this recipe and use in the morning? Desperate to try it tonight but I don’t want a mountain of waffles!

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 25, 2020 at 9:09 pm

      Hey! yes the night before should be fine xx

  8. Kelly on August 16, 2020 at 10:26 am

    Hi Jane, I don’t have a waffle maker but I have silicon waffle trays. Could I use this recipe & bake the waffles? If so, what temp & how long would I need to bake them for? Many thanks in advance:)

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 16, 2020 at 12:20 pm

      I’ve never baked a waffle mix I’m afraid so I’m really not sure! x

    • Gemma on May 26, 2024 at 10:48 pm

      Everytime I cook these in my waffle maker they keep sticking despite spraying the machine with oil. Had no issues with other recipes I’ve used. Am I doing something wrong ?
      Thank you

  9. Taylor on June 2, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    Is 1 individual waffle one serving?

  10. Angela on May 19, 2020 at 12:35 pm

    I bought my husband a waffle maker for his birthday. I always trust Jane’s recipes and this one did not disappoint. Perfect waffles all round.

  11. Sarah on June 27, 2019 at 10:16 pm

    Im ashamed to say it but… I’ve never had waffles before! I’m so going to buy a waffle maker this weekend because these look lush! (As does EVERYTHING you post, of course) X

  12. Denise on January 12, 2018 at 8:37 pm

    I just got new waffle plates for my breville, tried the classic recipe that came with it…. not the best to be honest. Knew I could count on Jane for a fab recipe and this is it. Thank you for sharing,
    I always check your page first if I’m in need of a recipe that will work first time, every time x much love x

  13. Hilary Hirtle on February 9, 2017 at 10:55 am

    Well, if the Valentine’s date doesn’t work out, at least I have another option for a date that day! 😉 These look amazing!

  14. Nyah on February 7, 2017 at 5:36 pm

    Lovely! Those look amazing!!! Keep up the good work!

  15. Nyah on February 7, 2017 at 5:34 pm

    YUM! How heavenly do these look! I love all that tempting fruit and all that chocolate drizzle. Waffle maker might be going onto my birthday wish list now….!

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 6, 2017 at 12:02 pm

      Awh thanks Jennie! And I honestly recommend one, I am so so happy with mine and they’re much cheaper than I expected for the quality! x

  19. Charlotte @ What Charlotte Baked on February 6, 2017 at 8:57 am

    I’ve got an Andrew James waffle maker – although mine makes little heart shaped ones which would be even more perfect for Valentine’s Day ❤️

    Fresh fruit, ice cream, and chocolate are definitely the best waffle toppings – I’m totally craving these right now ?
