A waffle maker has been on my list of things to buy for simply ages! So we jumped at the chance of teaming up with VonShef to celebrate Waffle Day! (YES THAT’S A THING…. A DAY DEVOTED TO ALL THINGS WAFFLE!)
Firstly, let me say I have literally no idea why I didn’t buy a waffle maker sooner! Fresh, hot waffles at home are just amazing… for breakfast, for dessert or just because you fancy a hot waffle… with melted chocolate and ice-cream….
Homemade waffles are super easy to make and super tasty to eat! I’ve used the VonShef Dual Round Waffle Maker for this recipe – priced at just £17.99! Total bargain!
Super easy breakfast recipe
- 150g self raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp caster sugar
- 250ml milk
- 1 egg
- Butter for cooking.
- Handful of berries and some maple syrup for topping.
- Put the flour, baking powder and caster sugar into a mixing bowl and stir gently to combine.
- Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and crack in the egg - add a little of the milk and using a wooden spoon - stirring in small circles - gradually mix together the batter - adding more milk whenever it becomes stiff. Eventually you'll have a smooth rich batter - pour this into a jug it just makes it so much easier for pouring into the waffle maker.
- Heat up the waffle maker - I gently brush the waffle plates with a little melted butter and then pour in the batter - I cook these for around 5-6 minutes and don't even peep at them before 4 minutes is up.
- Once cooked flip them from the waffle maker using a plastic spatular so you don't scratch the waffle plates.
- Load the strawberries, raspberries and blueberries onto the hot waffle and drizzle with maple syrup.
