I love my waffle iron… it’s on the list of things I’d save from my burning flat. Right after the Little Bears. I know that sounds silly, but I was bought my waffle iron 6 years ago, and it has survived moving house and flooded kitchen and being poked and prodded by Baby Bear. And it’s no longer being manufactured. Daddy Bear was very unimpressed with it, moaning about how it was another piece of junk taking up cupboard space in our tiny kitchen, along with the George foreman grill and the sandwich toaster. (I won’t mention the laptop graveyard in the living room) And he kept moaning, until I found this recipe for waffles. It’s light, crispy, easy to make and you can store the uncooked batter in the fridge for a good few days, which is perfect for us lazy Bears!
250g plain flour
415ml whole milk
120ml vegetable oil
10g granulated sugar
15g baking powder
Pre heat the waffle iron. Beat the eggs in a bowl until fluffy. Because I like the easy life (who doesn’t when Baby Bear is pulling at your legs shouting ‘Dinner!’) I blitzed them with my electric hand whisk for a minute. Add in all the the other ingredients and beat with the electric whisk until combined. Brush some more vegetable oil over your waffle iron and then ladle the mix onto the iron, and then follow the instructions on it for the cooking time.
I like my waffles with maple syrup and fresh raspberries, Daddy Bear likes his with icecream, Big Bear likes his with syrup and sprinkles and Baby Bear gets them plain. Because he likes to try and paint with his food. How do you like yours?!
