Waffling On …

I have recently purchased a wonderful waffle maker (Cuisinart ) and decided to try out one of the recipes on my youngest son! The recipe was quite straight forward and is listed below :-


  • 250g plain flour
  • 7g (1 ½  tsps) baking powder
  • 20g caster sugar
  • 5g (1 tsp) salt
  • 475ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 30ml vegetable oil


  1. Weigh all the dry ingredients and place them in a large mixing bowl. Measure the milk into a jug and break the eggs into the milk and beat together.
  2. Add the egg and milk mixture to the dry ingredients and add the oil. Mix all the ingredients together until all the large lumps have dissolved. Try not to over mix as the waffles may then have a heavy consistency when cooked.
  3. Pre – heat the waffle maker and  either spray with oil or just brush a little oil over the pans.
  4. Pour about 90ml ( nearly a ladleful, trial and error here I’m afraid but you’ll get the hang of it!) of the batter into the waffle maker and cook for around 3 – 4 minutes until the waffles are golden brown and crispy on the outside. You can take a peek after around 3 minutes to see if they are ready or not.
  5. Whilst the waffles are cooking you can cook up some crispy streaky bacon and get the blueberries and maple syrup ready. You could swap the blueberries for chopped banana, up to you really.
  6. Once the waffles are ready, plate up with your crispy bacon, maple syrup and the fruit of your choice.

Little tip

Any cooked waffles that are left over (that doesn’t happen here!) can be frozen and when required, can be popped into a toaster to heat them up again.

Youngest son was very pleased with his impromptu breakfast and gave his old mum the thumbs up! These will definitely be on our specials menu at The Old Parsonage in 2018 :o)
