Peace Greetings my lovely!
This is my go-to recipe for waffles. They’re made with some almond flour and plain flour. The almond flour makes it so light that it actually stays soft and hence melts in your mouth. I prefer this recipe to the usual ‘all flour’ recipe as that turns hard and chewy as it sits which is not what I want from a waffle.
The featured photo has received so many likes and reposts that I am surprised at the way a photo can reach places. Alhamdulillah.
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups almond powder/ almond flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk (low fat or any other kind of milk is fine)
3 tablespoons oil (I use sunflower oil)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.
In a large bowl, combine flour, almond flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla; until smooth.
Gently fold the milk mixture into the flour mixture and stir until smooth. It is okay if the batter has a few lumps. Do not over mix please.
Pour batter onto hot waffle iron and bake in batches. I use only 1/4 cup batter in each waffle case. Do not spread the batter around, it will do its thing once inside the iron. Do not overfill, less is more in this case.
Serve the waffles immediately with butter and maple syrup/ honey, and your choice of toppings. Waffles are best enjoyed fresh. I make only as much as required or cover and refrigerate the batter to use within a day or max 3 days.
And if you don’t have a waffle iron, just make pancakes out of this batter. Although waffles are waffles if you know what I mean 😉
Some toppings/ flavours I love to eat with my waffles:
1. Whipped cream and chopped strawberries ( you can add some chopped strawberries in the batter and make the waffle) I like to call this my Strawberry shortcake Waffle. Yum!
2. Honey drizzle and frozen berries – sweet n tart
3. Sliced bananas, chopped pecans and Caramel sauce – for the sweet tooth
4. Nutella, Chopped bananas and hazelnuts – for the chocolate lover
5. Butter square, cinnamon honey and blueberries (pictured below) – my personal favourite
I always include waffles recipes in kids bake along menus. Kids love them, so do adults.
And please do let me know if you try the recipe. I’d love to know how it turns out for you. Happy Waffling! 🙂
Also… I do make a lot of stuff in that waffle iron! Other than sweet, I make some killer Savoury waffles, and Paniyaram Waffles. So if you’re considering investing in one, I’d say it is a good investment. Coz its easy meal makers. 🙂
