Recipe - Waffles with Berry Coulis and Vanilla Cream

The best meal in existence is undoubtably Brunch. And one of my fave brunch items to order are waffles with berries, so I decided to take Ryan's waffle maker for a spin and attempt to recreate the most amazing brunch I had at the Breakfast Club in London. Spoiler alert it turned out pretty well...
Shopping List 
Various fresh berries - raspberries, blueberries and strawberries 
Frozen berries (for coulis)
Plain Flour
Baking Powder
Caster Sugar
Almond Milk
Vegetable Oil
Vanilla Extract
Vanilla Pod
Double Cream 
Lemon Juice
Waffle Maker

The recipe I used for the waffle batter is inspired by this, however I added a dash of vanilla extract and about 50g of extra flour as the mixture was a little too runny. As well as this I used almond milk instead of Cows milk (sweeter, healthier...) .I would recommend using an electric whisk to make sure there are no lumps.

250g Flour 
(I added an extra 50g to get to the right consistency)
7g Baking Powder
20g Caster Sugar
5g Salt
475ml Almond Milk
2 Eggs
30ml Vegetable Oil

The waffle maker I used was this one from Von Chef and it worked really well and was super easy to clean, this recipe makes about 3 batches on this specific machine.

 For the cream I simply whipped up some double cream with a drop of vanilla extract and a vanilla pod - the cream helps to break down the sharpness of the berries.
For the coulis, it was pretty basic, I didn't strain it through a sieve to get the seeds out or anything like that. I simply boiled the berries in about a centimetre of water, two tablespoons of sugar and lemon juice to taste. I pretty much made it up on the spot and it was a nice tart addition to the waffles.

Let me know if you try this, I highly recommend you do!
