  • serves 2
  • A little effort

Make a cream tea and waffles combo with ready-made waffles, a quick homemade cherry, strawberry and raspberry compote then serve with traditional clotted cream.



  • cherries 100g, stoned
  • cherry jam 50g
  • strawberries 100g, halved
  • raspberries 100g
  • rosewater 1 tsp (optional)
  • earl grey tea 1 tsp loose leaf
  • icing sugar 1 tbsp
  • ready-made sweet waffles 2-4 depending on size
  • melted butter 1 tbsp
  • clotted cream 2 big spoonfuls


  • Step 1

    Put the cherries in a small pan with the jam and 2 tbsp water. Heat gently until the jam is melted, then cover and simmer for 2 minutes to start softening the cherries. Add the strawberries, cover and simmer for a further minute. Add the raspberries and simmer for 30 seconds. Turn off, stir in the rosewater, if using, and leave at room temperature.

  • Step 2

    Heat your grill. Grind the earl grey tea with the icing sugar using a pestle and mortar. Put the waffles on a baking sheet and brush the tops with half the butter. Sprinkle over half the tea and sugar mixture and grill for about 2 minutes or until golden and crisp. Turn and repeat on the other side.

  • Step 3

    Divide the waffles between two plates, spoon over the compote and the clotted cream.
