A whiff of freshly cooked waffles she was awoken with,
Breakfast in bed was her surprise for the day,
Cutely dressed penguins dripped with maple syrup was what she got,
What a perfect way to start her day she thought :)
I got a Woddles Penguin waffle maker for my birthday last year and it has been put to good use ever since i must say. The little penguins have depressions in their belly for ice cream! A Perfect dessert don't you think?? It comes with a reliable list of waffle recipes that I've tried due to my curiosity. The recipes are really easy to follow and I just find all this little kitchen gadgets really cute and amusing. I've tried making Chocolate chip waffles, apple and cinnamon waffles and just plain basic waffles which go really well with any toppings!
Here's the recipe for basic waffle batter:
1 cup self raising flour
1 egg, separated
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup water
45g butter, melted
1 1/2 tbs caster sugar
1. Pre-heat waffle maker.
2. In a large bowl combine the sifted flour, egg yolk, milk, water and butter. Using an electric mixer; mix until smooth.
3. Using clean beaters; beat egg white in a small bowl until soft peaks form then gradually add the sugar and beat until the sugar is dissolved.
4. Fold the egg white mixture into the mixture.
5. Spoon 2 rounded tablespoons of mixture into each penguin waffle mould; using a plastic spatula push the mixture into the hands and feet of the moulds.Close lid.
6. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove waffles with a plastic spatula onto a cooling rack. Allow waffles to cool slightly before serving.
Back in Malaysia, my friends and i love the kaya(coconut jam) waffles from the local malls. It's a must have snack when we go shopping. I should try making it here one day.
