Mary’s Recipe: Waffles–Any way, Anytime

Waffle. Syrup. Fruit. Sound familiar? Drop the predictable morning waffle routine and let this versatile treat become the base for unique, easy-to-make dishes delicious anytime of the day.


Prosciutto and pear waffle.


Makes about 8, 7-inch light, crispy waffles

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup dried buttermilk powder (available in most grocery stores)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cups unflavored
  • soda water

Whisk together the dry ingredients, including buttermilk powder. Combine sour cream, eggs, vanilla and oil in a separate bowl and mix well. Gently stir soda water into wet mixture. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in wet mix. Fold together with rubber spatula until barely combined. Do not over-mix. Cook waffles according to waffle iron manufacturer’s directions, using about 1/3 cup batter per waffle.

Freeze any leftover waffles.


For each waffle:

  • 3–4 thin slices of prosciutto or speck
  • about 1/4 a pear, thinly slice
  • sprig of thyme
  • 1 tsp. apricot jam

Arrange the ham on the waffle; top with a fan of pear slices. Drizzle the pear lightly with apricot jam (thinned with a bit of hot water if necessary) and garnish with a sprig of thyme.

Bon Appetit!

Here's one from our upcoming Jan/Feb issue out on stands in just a few days. We hope you’ll grab a copy and enjoy every moment of reading it.⁠

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.
