A few years ago our really good Canadian friends moved back to Canada from Amsterdam leaving with us their waffle iron and amazing waffle recipe. Now every Sunday for brunch without fail we have waffles. There is nothing better than fresh waffles, fruit, bacon and gallons of maple syrup. The other month I upgraded our waffle iron to this beauty from Amazon (UK or US) to keep up with the demand at our table.
Here is the recipe for the best waffles ever:
- 250 grams of flour
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 450 ml of karnemelk (buttermilk)
- 75 ml of oil ( I use rice bran oil but olive oil works just as well)
- 2 beaten egg yolks
- 2 well beaten egg whites
Take all the dry ingredients and sift together, make a well in the centre. Measure out the milk and oil and mix together with the egg yolks. Then, pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined. Then fold in your egg whites until just combined. My favourite topping is bacon, sliced bananas and maple syrup. Delicious!
