Waffles

We have this ancient Breville Waffle Maker that we got like nearly 20 years ago as a housewarming gift. Over the years, unlike many of other unfortunately useless gifts, it has been put through the mill, trying so many recipes I'm surprised it's still alive. But no recipe has been as perfect as that found on Karen Cheng's blog a few years go. Surprisingly enough, this recipe is what led me to find her blog...and then onto many other fashion and lifestyle blogs...and then to my love of online shopping ( If you read her blog you'd know why =P)...and finally my own foray into the blogging world. So in a way, I owe these waffles ALOT. Plus, they are like the best waffles ever. So crunchy on the outside, fluffy on the inside....slathered in golden syrup its soooo goooooddd!


I'm an indecisive person, so the fact that our waffle makers split the huge waffle into 4 portions is perfect. As you can probably see in the picture, I like to put different toppings on each segment, leaving one blank cos even a plain waffle is a good waffle =P.

Soooo top right corner is lemon and sugar, bottom right is plain, bottom left is golden syrup
and top left is jam and margarine

Waffle Recipe
Recipe adapted from Karen Cheng
Ingredients
1 egg separated
¼ cup castor sugar
1 cup of milk
¼ cup of water
1 ½ cups of self raising flour
Pinch of salt
60g margarine (melted)

Chocolate chips (optional)

Method
1. Beat egg white (with half of the sugar), till stiff. Keep aside.

2. Beat egg yolk (with remaining half of sugar) until creamy. Then beat in milk and water. Then add sifted dry ingredients and mix in melted margarine.

3. Fold in egg white.

4. Spread some margarine over the heated plates of the waffle maker with a pastry brush (this will add extra crunch). Place batter into your waffle maker (amount will depend on your waffle maker). In between waffles spread a bit more margarine over the heated plates. This is also when I add chocolate chips, just before closing the lid on the maker - just scatter them on top of the batter and push them in a bit.

5. Eat hot! With whatever toppings you like!



Lol make sure you don't overfill like I normaly do =P

 
Enjoy =D xx
