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)
- 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!
