1 tablespoon vanilla essence
2 tablespoons liquid from jar of morello cherries
1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 cup coconut milk solids (keep 2 tins in fridge, open gently and only use solids from the top)
1/2 cup coconut cream solids (as above, 1 tin will suffice)
1 teaspoon rice flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste
2 cups Morello cherries
1 cup fresh cherries, pitted and halved (optional)
In a large bowl, place flours, baking powder, cacao powder, stevia and salt. Combine thoroughly with a wooden spoon, making a well in the centre.
In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients.
Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until a smooth batter is formed.
Cook in a waffle maker as per machine instructions.
Melt Well Naturally Chocolate gently over a double boiler, stirring frequently with a metal spoon.
Once chocolate has melted, turn off the heat and quickly stir in the coconut cream. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, combine coconut milk and cream solids with the sifted rice flour and vanilla.
Using electric beaters, whip mixture until well combined.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes before serving.
Cherries for serving
Combine Morello and fresh cherries (if using) in a small bowl.
Layer waffles with a spread of ganache between each layer and a few cherries.
Finish by topping with more ganache, whipped cream, cherries and shavings of Well Naturally Chocolate.
