The tennis champ's morning routine includes these proper homemade waffles with a fresh fruit compote
Federer's match-day breakfasts involve juice, a vinegar shot, coffee, cereal, fruit and waffles with raspberry syrup.
Makes four waffles
Beat together one egg, 150ml milk and 50g melted unsalted butter. Sift 125g flour, a teaspoon of baking powder, a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of caster sugar. Whisk together the dry and wet ingredients, stopping as soon as they're combined. Use a waffle maker or heat up both sides of a waffle pan over a medium heat, brush with melted butter and pour in half a ladleful of batter. Cook for two minutes a side, until crisp and golden brown all over. Keep warm while you cook the rest and make the sauce: put 100g fresh or frozen raspberries in a pan with four tablespoons of water and two of sugar, and cook for about five minutes, until the fruit breaks down. To serve, dust the waffles with icing sugar and drizzle on the sauce.
