sufferin’ sucanat

good morning, friends!

i hope you’re all doing well today & i’m glad you liked my pumpkin recipe showcase yesterday. Winking smile

sunday was mostly about pumpkin, but there was other goodness mixed in there too…in the form of sprinkles!

brad has been asking me when we’re going to use our waffle-maker (a bridal shower gift from way back in april…). liz used it a couple times this summer, but i hadn’t broken it in myself yet.

until sunday.

with the most delicious waffles i have ever eaten.

and sorry, i don’t have a crazy-blow-your-mind waffle recipe for you today. we used a boxed mix.

what made these babies so awesome was the toppings!

in particular, the huckleberry syrup from a gift basket on saturday. it blew my mind!

i also topped mine with a bit of butter, some sprinkles, and coconut flakes!

brad went a little crazy on his! he used the huckleberry syrup too, along with coconut flakes, cashew butter, and an insane amount of whipped cream! lol. i shouldn’t let that man near the whipped cream container apparently.

that waffle maker won’t sit unused for another 5 months!

one other recipe that i’ve been dying to try is ashley’s cake batter cashew butter.

i had one problem though. the recipe called for sucanat. i’ve never used sucanat before, so i had no idea what it was similar to. i used agave in its place, thinking it was a liquid sweetener, but the cashew butter didn’t react well to the agave. it started sticking together and thickening up. it never got drippy like i wanted. now i’m guessing that sucanat is a granulated or powder sweetener and i should have just used sugar? can anyone help me out?

either way, this cashew butter tastes delicious, even if it’s not the prettiest batch. the sprinkles help! Winking smile

today is volunteer-at-the-garden day! i’m excited to get outside. i hope the rain holds off!

have you used sucanat before?

can you help me out with my cashew butter conundrum?

  1. Ahhhh sucanat!!! OK, so it’s like granulated sugar, but it’s brown and essentially unrefined…just pure sugar cane juice. It keeps this molasses flavor that is UNREAL. I got to taste it at work the other day, and if my baking cabinet wasn’t overflowing, I’d have a new bag in there right now. I’m DYING to cook with it!

  2. your waffle maker makes much prettier waffles than mine!

  3. Sprinkles just make everything taste delicious! 🙂

  4. If you ever come back to St. Louis, they sell in at Dierbergs, but you can also find it at Whole Foods. I’m not a huge fan of it, but I also really don’t like molasses much. You can substitute brown sugar for it as that’s what I normally sub for it in recipes that call for it.

  5. Ooh those toppings on the waffles look delish!
