A waffle maker is en route from Amazon.co.uk, so I have been informed!, Therefore, it is time to collate recipes for waffles to astound the family 🙂 ; though pancake is a great favourite, a change now and again can only be a good thing! 😉
Fantastic news, there are plenty of recipes for waffles though of course good reliable maple syrup is still the staple.
The first recipe that I will be trying out is the
Jam & Peanut Butter Waffle Recipe
F&M Strawberry Jam, Photo by Peter
150g plain flour
1½ tsp baking powder
1 tbsp caster sugar
pinch of salt
1 large egg
2 tbsp melted butter
sunflower or vegetable oil for greasing the waffle maker
For the filling:
4 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
4 tbsp strawberry jam or raspberry jam
icing sugar, for dusting
Method of preparation:
Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a mixing bowl. (I have been told that sifting the flour and baking powder together is the best way to mix these ingredients together.)
Add the milk, egg and butter and whisk until the mixture turns into a smooth batter. Leave for 5-10 minutes or so to allow the baking powder to work its wonder 🙂
Lightly grease the waffle maker and then heat until hot. Important!
Pour in enough batter into the waffle maker and cook until the waffles are smelling of heaven and has turned golden brown.
Repeat until enough waffles have been made. Excess batter will keep in the fridge for a day.
To add the fillings, spread a waffle with peanut butter and another one with the jam. Make a sandwich with the fillings enclosed together in a sweet embrace. 🙂
Dust with icing sugar. Enjoy!
So yummy with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
