Woah, life has been busy for me lately and I can only hope that I am slowly getting some more free time for my blog. Just a quick update for why I have not been online, but I have bought my first house (hooray!), changed jobs and I attend college! I am really gutted that the blog has taken a back seat but now I am getting sorted out I want to spend much more time on here :).
So to get back into the swing of things I have a breakfast treat for you. I am super excited to make these for my friends when they come and stay in my new pad. So as a Christmas present off Jamie (the other half!) last year, I was bought a waffle maker. I was very excited about this as I love treating Jamie and I to slap up breakfast at the weekend. However, Jamie bought me a packet mix to use. Now to be fair it made pretty good waffles so it wasn’t till it ran out that I started looking and researching homemade waffle recipes. It has taken me a good year and I am finally happy with the results this recipe gives me.
I found that many waffle recipes were just a little tasteless, or too stodgy and they were nowhere near as nice as the packet mix. This recipe replaces the vegetable oil (found in a lot of homemade waffle recipes) with butter (most definitely gives a better result) and I found, a touch of cinnamon goes a long way!I really hope these don’t disappoint. Let me know if you make them by leaving me a comment at the bottom of the page. If you’re interested in which waffle machine I use, here is a link :).
- 120g Plain Flour
- 80g Sugar
- ½ Teaspoon Baking Powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 Egg
- 40g Butter (melted and cooled)
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 150ml Milk
- Pinch of Cinnamon
- For the sweetened Blueberries:
- 80g Blueberries
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar
- In a bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
- In a separate bowl whisk the egg, vanilla, milk and melted but cooled butter.
- Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. The consistency should be thicker than pancake mixture but still loose enough to pour.
- Heat up your waffle machine and grease according to instructions. I usually grease mine up with vegetable oil and heat it up to its highest setting as I like to think it makes it crispy on the outside whilst fluffy inside 🙂 yum!
- Pour your waffle mixture into your waffle iron and cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Again this may depend on your individual waffle machine.
- Whilst your waffle is cooking, heat up the blueberries in a pan with the sugar. Reduce the blueberries down to they get a sticky and almost a jam-like texture.
- Take out your cooked waffle and generously spoon on your sweetened blueberries and enjoy!
