I have a quickie breakfast story for you, and a product review. I usually don’t go in for single use electrical products… Actually perhaps I should say, I stopped purchasing this type of product after the sausage roll maker and pie maker, yes they worked just fine but it was quicker and easier to do a batch in the oven en masse than a batch of only 2 or 4 at a time.
Last Christmas I saw this cute little Kambrook “Sunny Hunny” waffle maker from their “Little Chefs” range. I knew instantly that Santa would be delivering this to a special little girl in our family.
Sure enough on Christmas morning we were making heart shaped waffles. The waffle maker came with a handy recipe book which was simple, and the waffles worked perfectly every time.
The waffle maker produces 4 heart shape waffles at a time. Each batch only takes about two minutes to cook so cooking these in this machine takes the same amount of time as making the same quantity of pancakes in a pan. At the moment I am doing the cooking because I think it is a little too hot for Anais to manage by herself, but she certainly enjoys eating these sweet little treats. Usually we will have them with maple syrup and fruit such as banana or strawberries, but today the fruit bowl is bare so it was just maple syrup.
- 1 cup SR Flour
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 45gm melted butter
- 1 Tbs caster sugar
- Heat the waffle maker.
- Place all the ingredients into a 2 1/2 cup capacity jug and blend with a stick blender until smooth.
- Pour one tablespoon of the batter into each of the heart waffle plates.
- Close the lid and allow to cook for two minutes.
So I hope you are now craving waffles and maple syrup, I am sure this recipe would suit any waffle iron so let me know if your try it out.
The recipe makes the perfect amount of batter for two children, but I would double the quantities if mum and dad wanted waffles too.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM! Love you!!
