So finally I put my “lazy-ness” behind me and decided to make waffles! But I then realized that I was mistaken that I had a waffle hot plate !
How demotivating is that ?
But somehow I did some search and found that it is possible to make waffles without a waffle iron,
And yes they did turn out to be crispy from outside and soft from the inside. As this was my first time, I stuck to the basic recipe of a waffle.
1 cup all purpose flour
(Many times I have seen recipes use 1/2 cup whole wheat flour but as I did not have any of that I just used the all-purpose flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons raw sugar (or substitute granulated white sugar)
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups milk (Usually buttermilk is used for a richer taste but I just used full cream milk)
Maple Syrup or Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup or Any Syrup
Mix all the dry ingredients together properly. Make sure they are mixed evenly, as usually we just ignore mixing the dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl beat the eggs and the milk. Mix them with the dry ingredients. Melt some unsalted butter (I used a table spoon of butter). From experience I have noticed that if you add vanilla extract at the end, then its smell stays longer.
Do not over mix. If you see some lumps in the batter, it is fine, it would not matter.
If you over mix the batter might become thick.
As I was using the sandwich maker grill, it became heated in one minute. What ever Griller or source you are using it needs to be preheated. I sprayed some olive oil, and poured the batter into the grill plate, and closed it.
By using my smelling instinct I figured out they were cooked. Took almost 3 minutes!
And then I cut them into two, spread some Maple syrup and topped with Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup and munched it right away 🙂
