Waffles are my favorite food from heaven (after brownies and pizza of course).
Piled high with whipped cream and strawberries or ice cream and Nutella, they are the ultimate, indulgent breakfast/snack/lunch/dinner/midnight meal.
I got a waffle maker a few months ago. Since then I have made batches upon batches of waffles in search for the perfect recipe.
For me, a perfect waffle is:
soft and fluffy on the inside
crispy on the outside
After months of researching through different recipes available on the internet; I decided to test the ones that were the most popular worldwide.
One called for melted butter; the other vegetable oil. One involved eggs with the whites whisked till stiff; the other with the eggs mixed right into the batter.
I made waffles after waffles and forced my sisters to be the taste testers (a torture to which they happily agreed).
One fine Sunday, I found our *all-time favorite, no-fail waffles recipe*.
This recipe will impress waffle newbies and old waffle lovers alike.
This is it.
This is, hands down, the best waffle recipe EVER!
These waffles are everything mentioned in the list above and more. They send you into a good food coma so deadly that it should come with a warning.
You will, obviously, need a waffle iron to make these warm, crispy waffles. I recommend you take the plunge and just buy it. It is worth the investment because after making this recipe once, I assure you, you will want to make them every day for breakfast/snack/lunch/dinner/midnight meal.
I ordered mine online at Daraz.pk. They had a sale going on and I found mine pretty cheap for Rs.1400/-.
>>Here’s the link to the brand I use<<
It’s small and it’s not fancy, but it’s budget-friendly and it works well.
After making waffles myself, I can tell with confidence that those sold at astounding prices in restaurants can be absolute crap. They’re often soggy, eggy, and bland. Homemade waffles are way way wayyy better and are really easy to make too. They are the new 2-minute noodles!
This recipe is pretty standard including all your basic kitchen ingredients. Dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in another. Whisk them together and voila, waffle batter.
We love them drenched with maple syrup or smothered with Nutella (heavenly!!).
Buying a waffle maker has to be the best decision I have made yet (other than starting this blog of course).
I hope you enjoy them as much as my sisters and I did. And if you do whip ‘em up please share on Instagram using the hashtag #spatulainmypocket
