When I was contacted and asked if I wanted to review a Belgian Waffle Maker, I literally couldn’t respond quick enough. Waffles have to be right up there as one of the most mouth watering, delicious desserts there has ever been. I pretty much always opt for waffles if they’re on the menu when I go out to dinner. So needless to say, when this offer pinged into my inbox, I grabbed the opportunity with both hands!
I’ve never made a waffle in my life and so I took to Google to find out what I needed for the ingredients. I was pleased to discover we had everything we needed in the cupboard!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 1/2 cups warm milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and salt and then add in the warm milk, the eggs, the melted butter and the vanilla extract. Beat to a batter and that is literally it! Even I could do it – Mrs Undomesticated!!
Once the mixture was ready you ladle it onto the waffle maker (which you have pre-heated), close the lid and set a timer for 5-6 minutes!
The waffles were so easy to make and were very easily removed from the maker when they’re done. I decided to have mine with strawberries and maple syrup and the Husband had his with peanut butter. We both agreed they were blimmin lovely!
The waffle maker is very similar to that of a traditional toasted sandwich maker, in that you shut the lid and it cooks away. You don’t have to touch it until the time is up. It was also really easy to clean afterwards. It doesn’t take up that much room and can be easily stored on a work surface or in a cupboard.
You can find this particular waffle maker on the Domu website, it’s currently retailing at £25.99 – which is a bargain!
Have you made waffles before and do you have any exotic recipes to recommend?
