Waffles

As it feels like winter outside (while it is still October), it's time to experiment in the kitchen. During the cold and dark evenings, I always feel the need to try out new things in the kitchen. This time I kept it easy. It was a long time ago I ate self made waffles, so I decided to search for a good recipe. I found an easy but delicious one of Jeroen Meus. So after work, I crossed to the super market and bought all the ingredients. That same evening, I made these delicious waffles. And I prefer them while they're still a little warm :). And of course, I brought some waffles for my colleagues, who really enjoyed them.

Find the recipe here (for 2 persons):

  • 250g pastry flour
  • 200g butter
  • 150g sugar (optional: 1/3 vanilla sugar)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon powdered vanilla pudding
  • half vanilla pod
  • 1 pinch of salt

Once you have all the ingredients, you can start cooking.

  • Carefully weigh all the ingredients and start with the butter
  • Melt the butter in a pan
  • Take a blow and add the flour, sugar, baking powder and the pudding powder
  • Cut the vanilla pod, scrape the vanilla seeds and add to the flour mixture
  • Also add a pinch of salt
  • Mix everything together
  • Break the eggs one by one in the bowl until you obtain a smooth batter
  • Add the melted butter and mix till you become the perfect waffle batter
  • Transfer the batter into a bowl and put it in the refrigerator for at least an hour (the batter should stiffen)

Enjoy!
