Andreasherzen (St. Andrew’s Hearts)

by | Dec 2, 2023 | Advent and Christmas, Catholic Cuisine, Recipes, St. Andrew the Apostle | 6 comments

Have you ever tried making the recipe for Andreasherzen (St. Andrew’s Hearts) from Cooking with the Saints? It never turns out for me! Every attempt resulted in a batter too thick, leading me to improvise with extra liquid. I also rarely have white wine on hand so last year I opted for sparkling apple cider in addition to my other substitutions and modifications. The results were fantastic! topped with maple syrup and berries, it was a delicious treat for the feast of St. Andrew! Here’s our recipe:

(St. Andrew’s Hearts)
2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 TBS monkfruit
1/4 cup sparkling apple cider
1 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
pinch salt
Beat eggs, add additional ingredients and beat all together. 

Here is the link to our waffle iron I use each year for our Andreasherzen (St. Andrew’s Hearts). I purchased it back in 2014 and it still works perfectly. It also has surprisingly not increased in price since back then, unlike everything else!

You can view the reel my daughter made last Advent over on Instagram!

Andreasherzen (St. Andrew’s Hearts)

Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen.

✨ St. Andrew the Apostle, Ora Pro Nobis! ✨

    I’m sold! Going to head over from your link and get one of those waffle irons – those heart shaped waffles are lovely. But first, have you tried using whole wheat flour or any other flours? I try to avoid regular white flour and I’m wondering if other flours will also produce such nice results? Thanks for letting me know!

      Hi Karen! I actually haven’t used whole wheat… But I have used Cassava in the past (I try not to eat grains with my autoimmune issues) and it just takes playing around with the amount of liquid/flour.

    Hi Jessica- What cookbook are you using? I’ve noticed it before. Did you produce one with your catholic cuisine blog recipes?

    • Jessica

      Cooking with the Saints by Ernst Schuegraf (published in 2001) – I’ve used it for inspiration for years. I linked to it in the first sentence of this post so you should be able to click that link to take a closer look!

    Hi Jessica, these waffles look wonderful! What is the title of the book that I can see in the left-hand corner of the first picture? Have a lovely Advent!

    • Jessica

      Hi Sherri! That’s My Book of the Church’s Year from St. Augustine Academy Press! Love it!!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
