Menorah waffles! Super-easy Chanukah breakfast

When I saw these Christmas Tree Waffles from Diana at Little Sunny Kitchen, I realised that I needed to up my Chanukah breakfast game considerably! Kipper loves a special breakfast, and she loves Chanukah, so I was pretty much guaranteed a warm reception if I could pull this off. However, being not really (read ‘not at all’) a morning person, I needed to come up with something really easy. 

I must admit that breakfast in our house is usually toast, porridge, or some other thing that goes in the toaster but isn’t bread e.g. crumpets, pikelets, scotch pancakes etc. Occasionally, we have croissants, or Kipper’s favourite – pain au chocolat. (And of course on Sunday mornings, when I manage a bit of a lie-in and we’re not in such a hurry to be somewhere else, there’s homemade waffles. Although at this stage I could probably rustle them up in my sleep. I expect I sometimes do…)

But back to our special Chanukah breakfast. Using only shop-bought items garnished with fresh fruit, I created The Menorah Waffle!

This is probably one of the easiest to make and best received breakfasts I HAVE EVER MADE! And it pulls together from ready-made ingredients in about half a minute. Your kids will LOVE this. Kipper was over-the-moon with it. She was quite annoyed that I insisted on taking photos before she was allowed to eat it!

We used Kingsmill waffles, as their range of bread and breakfast goods is all kosher certified by the SKA. As you can see, we decorated our Chanukah waffles with raspberries, tangerine segments, and chocolate and rainbow sprinkles, but you could go wild with caramel or chocolate syrup, whipped cream, chopped nuts… just about anything that takes your fancy!

So there you have it – a fabulous Chanukah breakfast, sorted! My Chanukah gift to fellow non-morning-people everywhere 🙂
