Waffles can be sweet or savoury and my preference is just salty butter on the sweet ones, but sweet lovers an coat them with jam, or whipped cream, or ice-cream or fresh strawberries or just about anything they can think of.

Here are 4 wonderful Waffle recipes. Once you’ve got the hang of the basic moves, there’s just no stopping you.

1 ¾ cups cake flour
2 tsp double acting baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tbs sugar
2 eggs separated
3 tbs melted butter
1 ½ cups milk

Sift the cake flour and then sift in the baking soda, salt and sugar.

Beat the egg yolks well and mix in the melted butter and milk.

Make a hole in the center of the sifted mixture and pouring in the liquid ingredients combine them with a few swift strokes. The batter will now have a pebbled look.

Beat the egg whites till the form stiff peaks, and just barely fold into this batter.
Now pour about 1/2 cup batter over the bottom of each hot waffle grid. Close lid and bake until golden (when almost all the steam stops flowing out of the iron) about three to four minutes.
Serve hot topped with cream, jam, maple syrup, or just about anything you can think of.

Waffles Irons and what you do with them

I love Waffles. But believe it or not, we rarely have them because of a very practical problem. Cleaning the waffle iron is a major pain. No I’m not kidding at all, that’s the real reason. So it lies on the top shelf behind the ugly glass set and our stock of don’t-need-but-can’t-throw-away bottles and boxes.

And then I came across this tip, while searching for something completely unconnected. It said, “If you have a cast iron waffle iron you must season it to make sure it is non-stick. First, coat the cast iron with oil or lard and bake the waffle iron in a slow cooking temperature oven. Don’t clean the waffle iron with soap or dish washing detergent, only wipe the waffle iron clean with tissues after each use, since after seasoning nothing should stick. If you do need to use a cleanser, use salt which will help you remove any waffle residue without removing the seasoning!”
And this goes for a teflon coated electrical one… Switch on your Waffle Iron and let it heat for 5 minutes, then lte it cool. Repeat the procedure again with a light brushing of butter or oil. Let it cool. Then put in some waffle batter and toss out the first waffle. After that, you’re ready to roll. Again, never use soap and water, just wipe clean, dry, and put away.

Well what do you know, I tried it, an it actually worked. Then I bravely made a waffle, and then another, and then I was digging out old recipe books for waffles, and ‘googl-ing’ waffle recipes. And finding all sorts of interesting stuff connected with Waffles. (more…)
