Waffles

There is something quite nostalgic about waffles. My mum used to make them for us at the weekends and we ( my 3 siblings and I ) used to all sit around the waffle-iron and devour them faster than mum could make them. We were a very hungry lot ! Brave woman, having 4 kids in 6 years !!!

Ingredients:

  • 250g Plain Flour*
  • 7g Baking powder*
  • 20g Caster sugar*
  • 5g Salt*
  • 475ml Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 30ml Vegetable oil

*We used self-raising flour, so kids had to do some calculations.

In every 150g of self-raising flour, there is 7g baking soda. Meaning, it is slightly less that above recipe. We figured out that we needed to add 2.4g or ½ tsp to make flour – baking powder proportion same as above.

250g = 473.18 ml self-raising flour

Being used to cooking using volume measurement, we had to do another conversion: 100g = 105 ml caster sugar and 1tsp = 5.69g salt

Just lucky that Jake loves maths …

Method

1, Mix all ingredients together

2, Whisk egg and milk together

3, Combine all ingredients

4, Heat and grease pan

5, Pour batter carefully into pan and cook

We used a vintage Husqvarna waffle iron that I recently picked up at a flea market in Sweden, so had to cook one side first, before flipping it over to cook the other side.

It took a little bit of figuring out and practice but we were pretty pleased with the results in the end.
