Warm Belgian Waffles

Another quick and easy recipe, using delicious wholesome ingredients. You can be as healthy or as decadent as you want with the toppings, but the waffles themselves (in moderation) don’t post any health risks 😀

Perfect for a lazy weekend brunch.

You will, of course, need a waffle iron if you’re going down the easiest route. But if you don’t have one, DO NOT DESPAIR! A griddle pan can also suffice (google for tips on how to do this!) but otherwise this recipe requires surprisingly litlle effort – and for that effort you get a gorgeous plate of warm and light Belgian waffles!

Delicious with fresh strawberries, powdered/icing sugar, and some whipped cream!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of self-raising flour (aroudn 150g)
  • 1 tsp of sugar, a little more if you have a sweet tooth
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 cup of milk (around 230ml)
  • 1 tsp baking powder

If you’re feeling fancy, a little vanilla essence can lift the flavour, as can cinnamon or nutmeg, or a few scattered raisins

Method:

Seive the flour and mix well with all the dry ingredients

Whisk the egg and milk together briefly, and add slowly to the batter as you continue to stir

After a good vigorous beating of the batter to make sure there are no lumps, you’re ready to cook! Exactly how long to cook for can take a bit of experimentation, so no excuses not to make loads of waffles!

Serving suggestions:

There are plenty of classic sweet toppings out there to enjoy – peanut butter, nutella, fresh fruits, cream, ice cream. Your imagination is your pantry here.

Don’t forget that they can also be delicious savoury snacks – try topping with fried or scrambled egg, baked beans, or the ever popular crushed avocado
