Sunday is waffle day in the Ferreira household. It’s become a sort-of-tradition. We sleep in a bit and then I get up and make waffles. With bacon. And maple syrup. And home-made jam. And blueberries and strawberries (in season). Yum!
But it has taken us quite a while to get the right results. Some recipes I tried were either too sweet, or too salty or too doughy. What I was looking for was a neutral flavoured waffle (so that you could have it with either sweet or savoury fillings) – AND – they obviously have to be light and crispy!
In the end this is the recipe I have come up with. It really is a bit of a hybrid of many recipes that I have tried.
TIP – if you are not serving the waffles immediately after making them then they will lose their crispy-ness after a while. Turn your oven to 100° C (bake function) and place the waffles in the oven when the light goes off. Leave it in the oven to crisp up again.
TIP 2 – I sometimes make a bigger batch and then just freeze the left over waffles. Then in the week I can give the kids a quick and easy breakfast by just popping them into the toaster!
