What’s better than waffles? Whiskey toffee apple waffles! I’ve been playing a bit with sweet things lately since Marcel’s, SA’s leading frozen yoghurt brand, sent me a hamper with some of their goodies. I’m always a huge fan of anything vanilla but you don’t argue with the masses, so I decided to try their best-selling frozen yoghurt flavour instead – English Toffee.

What to do with frozen yoghurt in the middle of winter? Contrast it with something warm of course! So I caramelised some tart Granny Smith apples, and popped waffles in the toaster. To complement their English Toffee flavour, I made a classic toffee sauce, but added a warming kick of whiskey to it. Then I set about building the perfect waffle stack… Hot meets cold, velvety meets crispy, sweet meets tart. It’s an explosion of texture, temperature and flavour contrasts and a wonderfully naughty winter indulgence.

WIN A MARCEL’S HAMPER! You could win a hamper containing three litres of Marcel’s frozen yoghurt flavours along with Marcel’s sprinkles, waffles, cookies and brownies ­ ­– everything you need to have a serious froyo party! To enter, go to my Facebook page and follow the instructions. Competition closes 30 June.

All you need is…

1 cup (250ml) fresh cream
¾ cup Muscovado sugar
¼ cup salted butter
1-2 Tbsp whiskey (depending on how naughty you feel!)
4 Granny Smith apples
2 Tbsp butter
4 store-bought waffles
English Toffee or vanilla flavour frozen yoghurt

Start by making the toffee sauce. Simply place the cream, sugar and quarter cup of butter in a small thick-base saucepan. Cook on high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar, until the sauce starts thickening – it takes about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the whiskey. Set aside.

Quarter the apples and fry them in two tablespoons of butter until they’re soft and caramelised. Toast the waffles, top with apples and spoon over the whiskey toffee sauce. (The sauce will continue thickening as it cools to room temperature. If it becomes too thick for your liking, simply whisk in a tablespoon or two of milk.) Serve these delish whiskey toffee apple waffles with frozen yoghurt.
