Easy Eggless Waffle

So today, I decided to try out the new Krups Waffle Maker that I received for my birthday. I was quite bothered about the ingredients, because any basic waffle recipe would require eggs to make and we (Hindus) are observing a Navratri fast at the moment. I didn't want to wait until the fast would be over to make (and definitely eat!!) homemade waffles. However determined I was, and to satisfy my hunger for waffles, I thought why not try a basic eggless waffle recipe, with easily available ingredients. The waffles turned out good enough for a first time! I was a tinnie tiny bit disappointed with the topping that I used - the Illovo Smooth Chocolate sauce, which didn't do any justice to the waffle. I completely forgot that I had Nutella spread at home until my sister complained about the topping being a bit 'sour'. Nonetheless, the waffles were fluffy and soft. They could almost melt in the mouth! You can make them for breakfast or tea time and they are ready in a jiffy! What more to ask for on a busy morning?



Happy Waffle-Making!

Equipment:

  • A waffle maker
  • Measuring spoons
  • Measuring cups
Ingredients:
  • 1¾ cups of plain flour
  • 3 tbsp of sugar (adjust to your desired liking)
  • 350 ml of milk (or adjust)
  • ½ tsp of baking powder
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • ¼ cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Nutella as topping or any other Chocolate sauce
Makes 4-5 servings.

Steps:

1. Pre-heat your waffle maker, see the instructions according to your manufacturer, mine was set on thermostat 6.

2. Combine the dry ingredients together  (flour, sugar, salt and baking powder).

3. Add the vanilla essence and the oil. Mix well.

4. Add the milk gradually. Using a a whisk, mix the batter but make sure you do not over mix the batter. (when the flour mixture folds in, you can use a spatula to continue the mixing to avoid over beating the batter which will make the crumb tougher).

5. Pour the waffle batter in the waffle iron for 5-6 minutes. Remove the waffles from the plates and leave to cool on a rack. Top with your favourite topping: honey, maple syrup, nutella, jam or basic icing sugar. And voila, you are done ;)


Happy Eating!

NOTE:
  • In this recipe I am using vegetable oil but you could use butter as well.
  • I don't have brush the plates of the waffle maker with butter/oil, however your appliance might be different from mine, so please read the instructions about the pre-heating options and how long you should let it cook.
