I have a bit of an obsession with having aaaaall the kitchen gadgets and small appliances, however one thing I had never owned until recently, was a waffle maker. In hearing this, my Mother-in-law thought it was time to rectify that and bought us one for Christmas last year (YAY!) Of course this meant I had to come up with my own waffle batter recipe. After an initial fairly successful try, I did a bit of tweaking and was soon getting frequent requests from my kids to make them. I’ve been wanting to blog the recipe for months but they always disappear too fast for me to get a photo, so today I decided to make them after breakfast and.. photo success! Lovely and light on the inside and just the right amount of sweetness, these should disappear fast in your house too. Enjoy!
350g milk (plant based milk for dairy free/vegan)
50g honey or sugar
40g light tasting oil
2 eggs (4 Tbspn apple sauce for egg free/vegan)
1 tsp vanilla extract
270g white spelt or plain flour
1 Tbspn baking powder
1. Turn your waffle maker on to pre-heat.
2. Place milk, honey (or sugar), oil, eggs and vanilla in mixer bowl. Mix for 10 seconds/speed 4/MC on.
3. Add flour, cornflour and baking powder. Mix for 10 seconds/speed 4/MC on, turning speed dial up slowly so flour doesn’t fly up the sides of the bowl. Scrape down sides and mix a further 2 seconds/speed 4/MC on, if needed.
4. When waffle maker is heated, add batter in the amount indicated by your machine’s instruction manual and cook until golden brown.
This is the waffle maker I have and I really like it, it cooks nice and evenly and at a pretty good speed https://www.kitchenwarehouse.com.au/Cuisinart-4-Slice-Belgium-Waffle-Maker I get 12 waffles in it using this recipe.
I haven’t tried this recipe with GF flour but if you would like to, I highly recommend ORGRAN All Purpose Flour over other brands – let me know how you go!
