I’ve recently invested about $30.00 into a Belgian Waffle iron and can I just say, it’s the best money I’ve spent in ages. I TOTALLY love the thing!
This is a super easy recipe I came up with to satisfy the sweet tooths of my family and when you see how easy it is, and the ridiculously short amount of cooking time then you’ll be racing to your nearest store to get a waffle iron too (if you haven’t already got one!).
Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dessert… Hell, I’d even eat these beauties for dinner!
2 1/2 cups Self Raising Flour
1 tsp Bicarb. Soda
1/2 cup loosly packed Brown Sugar
600 mls Buttermilk
1 tbs Vanilla Extract
2 large Free-range Eggs
100 gms Melted Butter
1 punnet Strawberries
2 tsp Sugar
Vanilla Icecream and Icing Sugar to serve (optional)
- Place all the waffle batter ingredients into a large bowl and stir together until mixed but still slightly lumpy - do not overwork the batter! What you're looking for is a thicker batter that will spread when the iron goes down.
- Remove the stems from the strawberries and cut into quaters or halves depending on size. Sprinkle over the sugar, stir well and leave to macerate while you cook your waffles.
- Heat your waffle iron and ladle enough batter to cover 3/4's of the surface, then close the iron and cook for 90 seconds. To serve, dust with a little icing sugar and serve with the strawberries and icecream... Or serve with what ever you like, this is just a delicious suggestion! This recipe will make around 8 waffles.
- *** TIP: Even though my iron is a total $30.00 el-cheapo, it's one of those fancy irons that can flip 180°, so I cook for 45 seconds then flip and cook for another 45 seconds. You might have to play around with timings dependent on your iron.
- *** TIP: The batter will sit perfectly in the fridge overnight, so any leftover batter can be eaten at breakfast or if you've got guests staying you can make it ahead of time. Too easy!
