FOOD, My recipes, Uncategorized HOMEMADE WAFFLES 25 March 2009

Decided to make some waffles from scratch, on a sunny Saturday morning. Nothing like a sweet American breakfast sometimes 🙂 We actually haven’t made waffles before, usually just stick to pancakes and fry-ups of bacon/sausage/eggs/etc. I’m VERY particular about my waffles – I don’t like almost all the ones I’ve ordered in restaurants. I specifically like ’em a little crisp on the outside, but very moist on the inside. Somehow, Australian cafes just CAN’T make waffles, I don’t think I’ve ever discovered a place that made them properly. Same can probably be said for Shanghai.. and even if there was an American joint here that did it, they’d charge an arm and a leg for it.

Thing is, the ingredients cost a mere few cents – quite literally. Have a look at the recipe below – most of the ingredients you can probably already find at home! It’s also a cinch to make, the only annoying part is waiting the few mins whilst it cooks in the waffle maker, because the smell DRIVES YOU CRAAAAZY! 😛 An awesome way to wake up in the morning, and also have your significant other hopping around in excitement and then declaring you the best thing ever. Well worth it 😉


Mix 2 egg yolks, 1 3/4 cups milk, 1/2 cup canola oil, 1 tsp vanilla essence

Mix in sifted 1 3/4 cups plain flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, until just combined

Beat 2 egg whites until stiff peaks form

Fold in gently, do not overmix

Pour batter into waffle maker and clamp shut for a few minutes until golden brown

Fresh, hot waffles! Served with bananas and maple syrup

Lightly crisp on the outside, moist and soft on the inside.. mmmm….
