Mother’s Day is this Sunday and what’s a better way to show your mother you love her than with food? Try my Sweet Potato Waffles with a warm Grand Marnier berry compote and Madagascar vanilla whipped cream. This pretty and delicious dish is an easy and simple way to say “I love you” this Mother’s Day!

What You Need

Madagascar Vanilla Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar

Grand Marnier Warm Berries Compote
2 cups strawberries-sliced
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons water

Sweet Potato Waffle
1 1/2 cups sweet potato-cooked and mashed without the skin
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 eggs – separated
1 cup milk
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or oil
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 tablespoon of vanilla

Now, let’s make something Pretty and Delicious!

For the Whipped cream: In a chilled medium bowl whisk together the heavy cream, sugar and Grand Marnier liqueur. Whisk until the mixture becomes firm and forms soft peaks. When finished, place in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

For the Berries compote: In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add all ingredients into the pan and simmer. Stir gently and let cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Once sauce starts to thicken, remove from heat.

For the Sweet potato waffles: In two medium bowls, combine and separate your dry ingredients from your wet ingredients. Combine the sweet potatoes with your wet ingredients and then mix everything together in one bowl. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold egg whites into mixture. This batter should be thick. Grease and preheat waffle iron and cook until golden brown.

Serve the sweet potato waffles topped with a spoonful of Grand Marnier, warm berries compote and a dollop of whipped cream. Now, all you have to do is Enjoy!
