International Waffle is today! 25th March is International Waffle Day so what better time than today to share my favourite waffle recipes.
Regular readers will know I am a huge fan of waffles and use our waffle maker to cook all sorts of things (it isnt just for waffles you know, you havent lived until you have done a whole cooked breakfast in your waffle machine).
First up on my list of favourite waffle recipes is the one above for
Mini Egg waffles.
Madness I know, and I thought it would be a complete disaster because the chocolate would melt all over the waffle machine. However, it didn’t. The batter rose and covered the chocolatey eggs, encasing them in waffly magic.
Why not give them a go, yourself?
- 300g of flour
- 1 tbsp of coconut oil
- 3 eggs
- 430ml milk
- 5 drops vanilla essence
- 50g sugar
- Selection of mini chocolate eggs (clearly you need to remove any foil before using them)
- Combine all of the ingredients in a high speed blender, except the mini eggs.
- Pour a cup full of batter into your prepared waffle maker
- Drop desired number of eggs into batter.
- Allow batter to rise slightly before closing lid
- Cook as per appliance instructions
I did two waffles with Cadburys mini eggs, two with Galaxy chocolate eggs rolled in gold, and two with a Creme Egg inside cut in half.
If you don’t want something quite so seasonal, how about trying one of these other recipes
If you want to go ALL OUT and create a stunning centre piece then how about this, I made the cake mixture but you could just as easily do it with a shop bought packet cake mix, cooked in the waffle machine and then decorated with cream and strawberries. The trick is to leave each cooked cake/waffle until it has completely cooled — trying to remove it when even remotely warm will cause it to fall apart.
PS if you like all things Waffle, have you seen I have a Waffle board on Pinterest?
