[RECIPE] Mini Chocolate Buttermilk Waffles or Pancakes


I have a love-hate relationship with waffles. You see, when I crave for one, there's no cafe in sight for me to satisfy the craving. When I don't crave for it, waffle cafes are everywhere!

I've ever thought of getting myself a waffle machine maker. But nope, it does not make financial sense. Not only does it cost a bomb, it WILL end up as the biggest-test white elephant in my kitchen. So when I chanced upon this waffle griddle, I was simply ecstatic! Make my own waffles whenever I want to? It couldn't be any better. No waffle griddle? No worries! This recipe also works well with pancakes! Just a short of the crisp edges you find in a waffle.



Recipe adapted from Savory Simple
Preparation time : 5 minutes  Serves : 8 mini waffles (will defer if its pancakes)

Ingredients :
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 egg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 tbsp melted butter

In a medium bowl, sift the dry ingredients together and set aside.

Beat the egg separately till light and fluffy and add to the dry mixture, together with buttermilk and butter. Mix well till blended.

Heat up the pan with butter or oil. If using the griddle, spoon about 2 tbsp of batter into each cavity. Once the waffle bubbles (about 2-3 minutes), flip it over to the other side and continue cooking till brown (about another 2 minutes). Repeat process for the remaining batter.


Best served with a light drizzle of maple syrup or honey, fresh fruit toppings and vanilla ice cream! This combination together is simply mind-blowing. Enjoy!


Till the next post, have a wonderful day!

What Colors Are Right For Your Skin Tone?

It is a fact that buying clothes or jewelry online can be a challenge to unseasoned shoppers. Whether or not the size fit or if the color goes with your personality or skin tone, can hinder your decision to buy something that catches your eye on screen.

At Adeline's Loft, I've also received a few questions from customers who are new to me, whether the mock up jewelry with choice colored beads are suitable for their skin tones. So I've decided to compile some basic information that may help you decide when you are doing your shopping the next round.

Firstly, how do you decide your skin tone? Is it warm or cool? Refer to this chart to determine your skin tone.

Re-discover yourself and make these colors work for you. Co-ordinate with the existing colors in your wardrobe and you'll be able to mix and match jewelry adornments with ease. Wear colors that make you feel energized and enhance your appearance. I guess that in the end, it really is what makes you feel confident and pretty that matters!
