Just waffling...

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
I have had my toasted sandwich maker for a while now; it has 3 sets of plates for making toasted sandwiches (croques monsieur), grilling meat and making waffles. It is only recently though that I decided to try out the waffle irons and actually make waffles that I used to enjoy in the UK so much! It was well worth it and the children love to have them for breakfast and in their school lunchboxes.

You need:

1.75 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1.5 cups milk
3 eggs seperated
7 tablespoons oil (105ml)

(1 cup = 250ml)

Sift the dry ingreds into a bowl, add the egg yolks, oil and milk to the dry ingreds and beat well to ensure there are no lumps. Give it a quick beat with electric beaters if it looks too lumpy.

Beat the egg whites until stiff and then carefully fold into the batter.
Lightly grease and heat up the waffle iron and then using a soup ladle, pour about 1 ladleful into the waffle area. Cook for 4 or 5 mins until golden.

Delicious with golden syrup (my personal favourite), Nutella, jam and loads more! Keep them in a tub in the fridge and if you like them a bit crispy just pop them in the toaster for a couple of minutes before eating.
