This could be my new favourite thing!
Gem had a day off and was watching one of her Netfix favourites 'Dynasty'. In my mind just a tacky and wonderful as the original but with bigger b.... Well you get the idea!
Everything in that program seems to be ever so slightly over done and the breakfast table looks incredible with everything from fruit (I know I felt a bit nauseous) to waffles!
"I can't ever remember having waffles?"
So that was it, I went straight to Amazon to get us a Salter Deep Fill Waffle Maker for the delicious cost of £24.96
I can't remember the last time I had an actual waffle let alone made one from scratch and I have to be honest this was so easy and most importantly tasty, so I might be forced to make another one... or two! This is not the sort of machine you buy and after using just the once, decide to pop into the back of the cupboard along with the sandwich makers, oilless frying machines and halogen ovens, never to be seen again!
After deciding to make some for dinner we are already looking forward to the weekend when we go crazy with the chocolate sauces and ice cream!
I searched for a classic waffle recipe so we didn't have to find anything that wasn't already in the cupboard under the stairs!
250g plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons caster sugar
75g butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside. Preheat waffle maker to desired temperature.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; beat until blended.
Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle maker. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Serve immediately.
Gemma decided to have Sausage, Bacon and Poached Egg on her and I have Sausage, Bacon, Mushroom and Tomato on mine along with a drizzle of Nando's Mild Perinaise Mayonnaise and it was incredible!
The Salter Deep Fill Waffle Maker was so easy to use and clean away we would recommend it to anyone who fancies trying to make a waffle. Just don't make the mistake I made by slightly over filling the machine or you may get a little leakage out the sides.
Sadly I had some leftovers that I put in the fridge and decided to finish for breakfast!
If you've given them a go or have any great ideas for a pudding, drop me a message and let me know so we can give it a go and maybe feature t on here!
