Ingredients

  • 250g Flour (plain)
  • 7g Baking powder
  • 20g Caster sugar
  • 5g Salt
  • 475ml Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 30ml Vegetable oil

Method

    1. Weigh all the dry ingredients, place in a large mixing bowl. Break the eggs into the milk and beat the mixture.
    2. Add the egg and milk mixture to the dry ingredients. Add the oil and mix all ingredients together until all the large lumps have been broken up. Do not over mix otherwise the waffles will be heavy when cooked.
    3. Pre heat the waffle maker and spray with oil (1 cal spray works well).
    4. Pour 3/4 of a cup of batter into the waffle maker and cook for 3-4 mins or until golden brown and crispy on the outside.
    5. Serve hot with maple syrup. Also good served with sliced banana or blueberries.
    6. Cooked waffles can be frozen and heated up in the toaster. Unused batter mixture can be kept in a container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

This recipe does turn out 'awfully good' as long as you replace the 5g of salt with just a pinch, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and, optionally, replace the vegetable oil with a bit of melted butter. I honestly don't know where all the bad comments comme from but I can relate to the fact that there are a lot of lumbs even if you incorporate the egg/milk mixture slowly. I therefore passed it through a sieve and the result was very rewarding.

Thanks for this recipe. Followed it exactly and had a great result. Waffles as good as we had in America. Light, tasty and crisp. Making more today!

More like awful waffles! Tasted like slightly sweetened play dough! Not good at all!

Thank you so much for this, bought a waffle maker today and this recipe was great :)

Yuck! (from all the family)
Doughy mouthfeel and chemical taste of overcooked plasticine.
To make these edible you need to greatly reduce the salt and baking powder, then cook with a very hot griddle or you'll have no colour or crisp.

Or use a decent recipe.

This is about my only contribution in the kitchen ( bar the dishes... ) follow the recipe to the letter, all I do is add a little cinnamon from time to time.

Three adults in the house, so never any leftovers to freeze either......

Overall, this is a first class recipe, that I have used many, many times without failure!

I follow the recipe to the line, I ended up with waffles that were not cooked! I left them in my trusty waffle maker for ten minutes and nothing! Worst waffle recipe ever!

This recipe was very disappointing. Average taste, average flavour, dint crisp up as I would have expected. I have tried various other waffle recipes with absolute success. This is the first member recipe I have tried before, possibly not as well researched as good foods own.

Delicious, soft, tasty waffles! Made 12 waffles so froze some to be quickly reheated in the toaster when I'm in a rush!

Reduced the salt to a pinch and added some vanilla extract to make sweeter waffles, turned out very well

Was surprised at the amount of salt and baking powder so reduced the amounts given. Still found the waffles were too salty and not at all nice.

I use skimmed milk, so used 460 ml of skimmed for the right consistency.
These do taste delicious!

Easy quick and excellent results each time. The only slight change I would make is to add a tiny bit more sugar - did this by mistake and found they came out a little "crunchier" on the outside!
