- 500 gram self-raising flour
- 250 gram butter + more for greasing
- 250 gram sugar
- 4 eggs
- teaspoon of vanilla extract or vanilla sugar
- about 200 ml milk*
- any fruit you like
- whipped cream, or easily whip it up yourself and add a little bit of sugar to taste
Kitchen equipment needed
- Standmixer with whisk attachment or handmixer
- Small saucepan
- Cooling rack
- Optional: piping-bag without a nozzle
Preparation — 5 minutes
MELT the butter in a small saucepan. MIX the flour, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. POUR in the melted butter and keep on mixing. One at a time, mix in the eggs until the mixture is smooth.
*Now you can choose how much milk you’re going to add. The more milk you add, the fluffier the waffles will be. The batter should be a bit runny for soft, but firm, waffles. If you like them to be a bit harder, make sure the batter is slightly firmer.
Making waffles — 15 minutes
HEAT your waffle-iron and grease it with a bit of butter. Make sure both sides are greased, otherwise the waffle batter will stick to the iron and that’s no fun cleaning. You can pour in the batter using a spoon or whatever you like. We think the most easiest way is to use a piping-bag without a nozzle. Don’t pour too much batter in the waffle-iron, cause when you close the iron, the batter that won’t fit will just run out. And that’s no fun cleaning either!
When they’re nice and evenly browned, remove them from the iron and set them to cool down on a cooling rack. Repeat the waffle making process until all of the batter is gone.
Serve with some red fruits like strawberries, raspberries and blueberries and also whip up some cream. Mmm, so delicious!
