I remember going on holidays to Florida when i was very young and seeing waffles at the buffet. To me they taste like a crispy pancake, as they are crispy on the outside and light in the middle. Waffles can be flavored with whatever your heart desires. I like the traditional belgian waffle and i top mine with fresh berries, maple syrup and whipped cream.
2 cups Plain flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
2 Tablespoons Icing sugar
1 Tablespoon Vegetable oil
2 cups Milk
3 Eggs, separated
2 teaspoons Vanilla Essence
1 pinch Salt
Berries (eg; strawberries and blueberries) to serve
Maple Syrup to serve
Whipped cream to serve (optional)
Combine the flour, baking powder, icing sugar, oil, milk and egg yolks.
Beat the egg whites and salt until soft peaks, mix in the vanilla and fold into the batter (do not over mix).
Pour 1/8th of the mixture into a hot waffle iron and bake for about 2 minutes.
Repeat with the remaining batter.
Top with your favorite fruit, maple syrup and whipped cream, serve hot.
Tip - combine sugar with cinnamon together and dust waffles to get a donut flavor waffle.
