Waffle

Ok, I have been waiting for this moment for quite long time. I love waffle and basically I grew up eating those coconut waffles from the mobile venders on the way to school. Since I have been living in India, I couldn’t find waffle maker anywhere. Every time I went back to Thailand, I always forgot to bring the waffle maker here.

My husband was the cutest man when he remembered my 7 years grumbling about the waffle maker. When he went to America last month, he bought me a waffle maker. I was so excited to try as soon as it arrived in my kitchen. Within few second, my excitement was destroyed because I found out that this Cusinart waffle maker wasn’t suitable for electrical current used in India. We use 220 volt here which is different from 110 volt in the US. After few more weeks of searching for the voltages converter, my little dream of eating the fluffy golden honeycombs finally came true.

So this morning was a perfect day. I woke up and ask Yaseen to help me out in the kitchen. He was exciting about my new gadget, too. We prepared the batter and started making the simple delicious waffles.

I loved when the iron plate lifted up to tease us with a glimpse of haven. 

Basic Waffle

Ingredients: (3 servings)

1 1/2 cup flour

1 tsp baking powder

4 tbsp sugar

A pinch of salt

3 eggs

1 cup milk

50 gm butter- soften or melted

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

How to cook:

Whisk sugar, eggs and butter until combined and sugar dissolved.

Add milk and whisk further until smooth.

Sift in flour, baking powder, vanilla extract and beat until smooth.

Preheat the waffle maker, brushed with butter when it is hot.

Pour in the batter and close the waffle maker.

Check occasionally if your waffle maker is non-automatic.

Cook the wafer for few minutes or until golden brown.

Serve hot with more butter, icing sugar, jam….well just about everything 🙂

Our waffles turned out to be super perfect. They were crispy from the outside and spongy fluffy inside. They were hot and oozed by butter and vanilla in everywhere.

There were few ideas came to my mind… breakfast waffle with turkey bacon, corn and cheese…. Coconut waffle with coconut cream topping, waffle with sundried tomato, basil and salami…yummmm! 

What’s your favourite waffle recipe? And what’s the new kitchen gadgets you are exciting about?

Happy cooking!

  • All of your food looks delicious!! I can’t wait to start digging into your recipes!! Thanks so much for sharing. I can’t wait to read more.

  • YUM, these look delish!!! Wish I had a waffle iron… :/

  • Oh my gosh, they look great! I’ve thought about getting a waffle maker before, but I’m not sure how much I’d use it. Those waffles are starting to persuade me that I need a waffle maker in my life! 🙂

      Arlene,
      You should really have it. There’s so many fun and yummy waffle recipes that are so great for breakfast or snacks 🙂 I bet you will use it really often 🙂

  • Tes, we love waffles! So happy you have them again after seven years! 🙂

  • I know what you mean about the different current. Many years ago I brought a lighted christmas star with me to the States from Denmark and for the longest time I could not hang it up for christmas which caused me much fustration. Converters were not readily available back then. But now is hangs and glows in my kitchen window every year.
    Your waffles look very delicious. It never occured to me to make a savory waffle. Great idea.

  • I have a waffle maker too, I think it’s the same model as yours, but I hardly ever use it. It’s languishing in storage right now. But I never thought of making coconut waffles, that might convince me to take it out.

  • I purchased my waffle iron at Goodwill Industries, which is the best thrift store to find all kinds of small appliances, and most of the time they are brand new, as in the waffle iron, cost $2.99 compared to $17.99+
    Mine was still in the box with the recipe book.
    Your waffle looks yummy, I like your recipe better than mine. Love all your photos, and the rest of the things you made.
    Thank you for sharing!

  • the waffles look delicious!

  • RavieNomNoms

    They look awesome! I am glad you got to finally use your waffle maker!

  • OMG This looks so good! It makes me want to buy a waffle maker…

  • Lovely to discover your blog Tes.
    I love waffles AND kitchen gadgets. I shop at yuppiechef.co.za and love their stuff.

  • I am cracking up at that last picture of your toddler enjoying all that waffle-y goodness. Haha. Love it! Thanks for the great post–I’m really enjoying your blog!

  • Yummy….there is nothing that says “home” more to me than waffles.

  • How cute is your son with the waffle?!

    Great basic recipe, thanks for sharing!

  • Elizabeth

    Waffles made with a chunk of butter like that have got to be good. Coconut waffles sound devine.

  • I LOVE waffles! Now I need to add ‘waffle maker’ to my Christmas list. =) I really like your idea of the coconut waffles with coconut cream topping. You should let me know how they turn out if you try them!

  • Looks like the perfect breakfast…I think your son agrees 🙂 Too cute! Wishing you a great Thanksgiving 🙂

  • Irena

    So cute, love the recipe….my kids love waffles too i will try these. Thanks for sharing:)

  • It must have been so frustrating when the waffle iron did not work first time, but then I guess there was a lot of anticipation in your house when you finally got to make the waffles!

    When I lived in Belgium, I at a lot (A LOT!) of the yeasty waffles that have lumps of sugar in them – when they cook, the sugar melts and caramelises on the outside. I can highly recommend them too! They were an essential part of any day trip, best eaten warm while walking along a cold beachfront.

  • Arts Web Show

    Lol, nice.
    EverYbody loves waffles.
    Unfortunately not such a big thing in the UK

  • Nice! We love waffles but we always seem to make them sweet (blueberries, strawberries, or maple syrup are our usual toppings). I really like the idea of savory waffles. Sun-dried tomato, basil and salami or bacon waffles sounds like a wonderful idea.

    Thanks.

  • Waffles are always such a treat! Yummy! So pleased you were able to enjoy them again after such a long time.
    🙂 Mandy

  • Foods for the Soul

    These look delicious! You’ve motivated me to dig up my waffle iron and try some new recipes.

  • yummm! these look so good! I want a waffle maker!!

  • Hi Tes,

    I have a waffle-maker,too. I have given as a gift for the bride of one of my cousins.
    A dessert idea is Waffles and ice cream, put the vanilla ice cream on after the waffles are cooked.
    Sun-dried tomato and basil and salami is new to me, but I’d add it to my repertoire.
    As for kitchen gadgets, two that I am excited about using are not new, but well-used, my blender for “smoothies”, and my grandmother’s food mill.

  • Oh this looks like a much better recipe than my current one. Will be giving this one a go very soon. Looks yummy! And who can resist that gorgeous shot of your little one enjoying a waffle!

  • Nicola

    I made waffles today (and yesterday!) and yours looks very similar to mine apart from the fact that mine are boring rectangles. I love the shapes your cuisinart waffle maker gives!

    The coconut waffles you mentioned at the beginning of your post sound interesting; is coconut added into the batter?

    • Tes

      Nicola,
      I’m glad you like waffle, too. Actually I love the rectangular waffle maker more…. it’s what I used to in Thailand.
      Yes, coconut is add in the batter, including coconut cream, too. I’m still waiting for my mom to email me the recipe. I will definitely forward it to you 🙂

  • I’ve never made waffles but they remind me of when I was a child and we used to go to the seaside in Scarborough, north-east England, for the day on Sundays. There were always lots of waffle stalls serving them with chocolate sauce or jam and cream.

    Hello,

    I just recently moved to India and have been looking for a waffle maker. Saw yur post and was wondering did you finally buy a waffle maker in India or did you get a converter for the one you bought from the US. If you bought one here please let me know the brand and where you bought it from….

    Thank you,
    Ramya

    • Tes

      I bought the waffle maker from US but I got the converter here in India. You will need to look for the electrical stores for them. I got mine from the small electrical equipment store in the local market.
