I never tried waffles before because simply I never thought of buying a waffle maker. I have every kitchen utensil you can imagine .......... except that little waffle maker.
I also never had waffles before and never been tempted to make them. Do they taste like pancakes, or may be they have a crunchy texture more like cereals or may be waffles have a cake like texture??
So, I had to wait to come to mom's house who, obviously, has a waffle maker to try "les gaufres". Browsing for a good recipe wasn't that easy though :) because...........well how do I know it is a good recipe if I don't even know what to expect??!!! At the end of my mysterious waffle journey, I ended up choosing a simple french recipe. I only added sugar to te recipe because without sugar it tasted a little bit blind. It was a pretty good one because the waffles tasted so good and were crunchy on the outside yet soft in the inside. With a drizzle of honey and butter Mmmmm!!! Even if this is not the way they were supposed to be, I liked them that way!!
Recipe (In grams)
250 g All purpose Flour
3 large eggs
80 g melted butter
500 ml milk
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1- Melt the butter and set aside to cool.
2- Mix to combine: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
3- lightly beat the eggs and mix with the milk and the cooled melted butter. Add to the dry mixture and whisk to combine. Do not overmix. let the batter rest for 1 hour before cooking.
Serve the waffles with honey and butter. Enjoy!
