Fable says that the waffle was born when an armoured knight sat down on pancake batter and created the familiar grid-shaped breakfast confection. luckily, we now have waf e-makers to do the job. Great treat for breakfast or tea. Sweet or savoury, no matter, the waf e is a thick, uffy treat.

Makes 8 – 10 waf es


  • 280 g wheat cake our, sifted (500 ml) (2 cups) 5 ml baking powder (1 teaspoon)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 375 ml – 500 ml buttermilk (1 1⁄2 to 2 cups)
  • 60 g butter, melted


  1.  In the bowl of an electric mixer sift our, baking powder, and salt.
  2.  Add the eggs, the lesser quantity of buttermilk, and butter; then mix well.
  3.  Check consistency; if too thick, add a little more buttermilk.
  4. Grease the waf e machine with cooking spray or brush with melted butter.
  5. ladle in a spoon of mixture to nearly cover the base; close the lid and cook for 3 – 5 minutes until crispy and puffed up.
  6. Cook waffles according to the size of the waf e pan. Normally waf es are done when they stop steaming.
  7. Repeat with remainder of batter.
  8. Serve with maple syrup, Nutella, ice cream, berries for sweet waf es, or cream cheese, bacon, and toasted sun ower seeds.
  9. See other serving ideas under sweet and savoury pancake llings & topping & great toppings for waf es.


Try making savoury waf es with asparagus, poached/soft-boiled egg and hollandaise sauce. • The electric egg boiler could be used to cook the eggs – an additional appliance to promote.


For campers: grease a jaf e iron with butter, then place over moderate coals.

When heated, ladle waf e batter into the jaf e iron, close, and turn a few times whilst cooking. • Waf es are ready when crisp and cooked through.


Modern jaf e irons may also be used on gas/electric or induction hobs.

Equipment: Scale, measuring cups/spoons, medium-sized bowl, fork, spoon, whisk, jug, ladle or large spoon, metal/silicone egg-lifter or spatula, platter for serving, containers for toppings, knife, tasting cups and spoon.
