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 !!!
- 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 …
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.
