There is a simple flavour (and smell) combination which brings me such joy every time I use them and that is orange and cinnamon. I decided to have a play and see if I could add them to my favourite breakfast – waffles! I am to report that they work a treat and the fresh orange slices I’m sure makes them a healthy breakfast(a girl can dream).
