During lockdown we've rediscovered the waffle maker. It had been destined for the charity shop but we're really glad that we fished it out of the bag because we're using it loads. We've tried and tweaked a few recipes, and this is now our go-to. There are more complicated ones which might be more authentic, but we can't be bothered with separating eggs or waiting ages: the whole point is that it's a quick, easy option. Eat them with whatever you like: pur kids love drowning them in syrup and sugar, but we do try to throw a blueberry or banana in their direction too.
- 100g butter (melted gently in a small saucepan)
- 260g plain flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 425ml milk (we use semi-skimmed)
- 3 tbsp caster sugar
- 3 eggs, beaten
1. Turn the waffle maker on.
2. Put the flour in a bowl and then add all the other ingredients. Mix well, ideally with a whisk, until it's a nice smooth batter.
3. Pour the right amount of mixture into the waffle maker and allow to cook (this recipe makes 10 waffles using our waffle machine, in three batches). Repeat until you've used all the batter.
4. Top with whatever you like and enjoy!
