Valentines Day Waffles

Okay so I suppose you can have waffles any day of the week they don’t necessarily have to be for Valentine’s Day but I am sure your other half would appreciate breakfast waffles in bed on Valentine’s Day.

I have had a waffle maker for SO LONG but I rarely ever make waffles and I have no idea why because they are deeelicious!

These waffles are vanilla flavoured but you could add anything you wanted to them how about chocolate chips?

Again you could top them with anything you wanted I went for Syrup, Strawberries and Blueberries, the best thing about making waffles as you can make a batch and then pick whatever toppings you and your friends/relatives/loved ones like and make them personal to them.

I used a Double Waffle Iron from VonShef which I got from amazon! The only slight problem I have with it is that it does take a little while to heat up but once it had heated up it had cooked the waffles in no time.

This recipe makes up to 8 Waffles

Shopping List

For the Waffles

4 Large Egg Whites

500ml Whole Milk

100ml Vegetable Oil

1tsp Vanilla Extract

250g Plain Flour

1tsp Baking Powder

80g Granulated Sugar

For the Decoration

I used golden syrup, strawberries and blueberries but you can of course any toppings you enjoy.

Method

  1. Heat the waffle iron, you might need to lightly oil it so the waffles don’t stick.
  2. In a large bowl whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks.
  3. Measure out the milk in a measuring jug and add the oil and vanilla extract.
  4. In a large bowl add the flour, baking powder and sugar and mix until all the ingredients are combined.
  5. Add the wet ingredients (step 4) to the dry ingredients (step 3) and mix together to make sure there are no lumps.
  6. Add the egg whites to the mixture and fold them in until the batter is thick and smooth.
  7. Pour the mixture onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown and cooked through. As all waffle irons are different you will need to follow the instructions that come with yours to make sure the waffles are thoroughly cooked.
  8. Once the waffles have cooked pile them up on a plate and decorate using your toppings.

      My waffle maker is usually buried at the back of a cupboard I always forget I have it. I have never made them with buttermilk but they sound delicious!

      They are honestly so good! Although I somehow keep forgetting that I have a waffle maker so I don’t make them as often as I should!
