Just perfect, even on my first try! Amazed, Excellent!
on 27 November 2012
I expected, like pancaked, to make a few dud's before I got the knack, but no, this thing worked from waffle no.1 till the end of the batter mix I had made up.
What more can you want or ask for?
I turned it on, left it for 10 mins, opened it to let out the smoke (as it was new) and then gave it a clean.
I then set about making my batter for that I used the following lighter fluffier recipe:
Makes 6-7 Waffles
250g Plain Flour
1 ½ Tbsp of Baking Powder
2 Tbsp of Granulated Sugar
Pinch of Salt
350ml of Whole Milk
57g of Unsalted Butter, melted
1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
(You can use self-raising flour, just leave out the baking powder)
Buter should be melted but NOT burning hot, leave it to cool for a bit while you make the rest of the batter.
1) Add all the dry ingredients together. Thats the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together and mix to combine and then set aside.
2) In another bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients, which are the milk, butter, eggs and vanilla for about 1 minutes or until well mixed.
3) Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and just mix them enough to combine but don't over mix, a few lumps are ok then let it sit until the waffle iron is ready.
4) Meanwhile, preheat your waffle iron until the green light comes on and then lightly grease the waffle maker with either cooking spray or vegetable oil. I only needed to do this the once for every batch of 6-7.
5) Pour in a small ladle of batter enough for a deep ball about 1-1.5 inches less than the irons plate. Squish it down and let it cook the waffles until the green light comes back on.
That made perfect waffles for me. Hope it does for you too.
(oh and that was turned up all the way on the temerature dial, forgot to say)
Great results, easy clean, really fluffy great with icing sugar alone or some maple syrup and fruits or ice cream.
Tip: Preheat your oven to its lowest setting the turn off, pop a plate in and keep putting the warm waffles on that plate as you cook them, keeps them warm till you serve them.
Tip2: Cover in cling film and store in the fridge, heating in the microwave or in a toaster in the mornings, they keep for 2-3 days in a cold fridge.
