Happy French Friday! I am going to keep this short and sweet because I am busy packing for a Spring Break trip to Seattle and we leave tomorrow morning. This week for French Fridays with Dorie, we made a tasty dessert called Waffles and Cream.
I decided to really go for it, and not only made the waffles, but I also made the ice cream and the caramel sauce. I used the Vanilla Ice Cream and Warm Caramel Sauce recipes from the “Fundamentals and Flourishes” chapter of Around My French Table. The group isn’t officially trying to complete those recipes, but I am giving them a try when I have the chance to pair them with other recipes from the book.
What a tasty and decadent dessert! I loved the waffles, they were light and crisp and rich all at the same time. The vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce topped them off nicely. I would like to try these waffles for breakfast some time too. They would be wonderful with berries and whipped cream.
I will try my best to read the rest of your FFWD posts, but it is always tricky when you’re out of town. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and week!

Very impressive… a true French dessert EVERYTHING from scratch. These waffles were terrific but with homemade carmel sauce and homemade ice cream… they must have been amazing. Have a wonderful trip.
Must get the ice cream and caramel recipes done too! You did awesome on the trio!
Wow! Your waffles look great, as does the ice cream and caramel sauce! A job well done!
Happy Easter, Karen! Enjoy your vacation!
Looks like a decadent dessert, especially with all the components homemade, not just the waffles. Impressive! Have a great spring break.
Okay, so you’re rushing around getting ready for a trip and you make not only the waffles but also ice cream and caramel sauce? You put us all to shame, Karen. Nice, nice job.
I hope you had (are having) a great time in Seattle.
Your waffles look great!
Seriously delicious looking waffles- YUM. Love the perfect caramel drizzle 🙂 Hope you had a great trip to Seattle. I have not been there other than the IFBC a few years back and utterly loved the whole area. I hope to get my hubby back to do more sightseeing….and restaurant testing ~
wow fantastic! 😉
