Waffles are a kids favourite. The stickiness of the honey or syrup. The fresh cream or ice-cream melting on a fresh waffle released from a hot waffle iron straight from the stove. The creativity of what could be put on a waffle is great from young kids. They get a sense of making their own treat, this is great for building confidence in younger kids. They are so easy to make and really are fun for the whole family.
- 2 cups of flour
- 3 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups of milk (hey, you eating waffles, make sure it is full cream)
- 1 tablespoon of sugar (no! sweetex will not work!)
- 3 tablespoons of margarine/butter (no ‘lite’ versions)
- 1 waffle iron
- Separate the egg white from the egg yolk
- Sift together flour, baking powder and salt – now known as ‘dry ingredients’.
- Heat the milk, sugar and margarine/butter together – now known as the ‘hot mix’.
- Slowly combine the ‘hot mix’ together with the ‘dry ingredients’ – now known as ‘the mixture’.
- Beat the egg whites until stiff – for those who watch ‘Come Dine with Me‘, you can try putting it over your head if you want.
- Add the 3 separated eggs yolks to ‘the mixture’
- Fold the stiffly beaten egg whites to ‘the mixture’
Waffles Cooking Directions

- Place back on the heat immediately.
- Make the first turn within 30 seconds.
- Turn again after a minute (or so) and slowly open the pan to see how it is going.
- Cook to your liking – some like it golden, some like it more crispy.
- Remove from the waffle iron.
