  • Step 1

    Start with the plums. Pre heat the oven to 180°C.

  • Step 2

    Place the plums cut side up in a baking dish, sprinkle with the coconut sugar and put the star Anais in with them, add ½ cup of water to the dish to stop the plums drying out. This also yields a little juice.

  • Step 3

    Place in the oven for about 20 mins to bake, keep an eye on them.

  • Step 4

    Next for the waffles. Place the wet ingredients in a bowl and allow to sit for a couple of minutes, this will create a kind of buttermilk.

  • Step 5

    In another bowl combine the dry ingredients.

  • Step 6

    Mix the wet into the dry and whisk until just combined, don’t overdo it, a few lumps are fine. Set the batter to side to rest until you’re ready to make your waffles and the plums have cooked.

  • Step 7

    Turn on your waffle iron to high, if it has a setting. The secret to successful waffle removal is in the oiling, oil very very very well, to point where you think it might be a little too much.

  • Step 8

    Add enough batter to waffle iron to allow for expansion. Cook to irons instructions, if you know your iron you will know how long it will take to cook them, I like them really crispy on the outside and would always allow a little extra minute due to the buckwheat flour.

  • Step 9

    When you’re ready to serve, remove your juicy plums from the oven, plate up your waffles, top with dollops of yogurt, a few plum halves, or quarter them, a sprinkle of pistachio nuts, drizzle of maple and a few rose petals if using.
