When I first purchased my waffle maker I was so excited to get to make waffles every weekend. Then I had a play with some recipes, made a few batches and the recipes just were not quite right. So, in the cupboard the waffle maker went and I didn’t see it for a few months. Then, Christmas came and I thought hmmm... maybe I could give it another go!
I had another play with some recipes and have come up with THE MOST delicious, light and fluffy waffles I’ve ever had! No joke!
Here is my recipe, I think the reason I failed in the past was because my choice of milk. In the original recipe I used almond milk, but I think to keep them light and fluffy Oatly Oat Milk Barista is the best. We have it at home all the time and it’s super delicious for all baking (and drinking of course!).
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
450ml Oatly Oat Milk Barista
3 large eggs, separated
125ml coconut oil melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
225g gluten free plain flour (I like Dove Farm the best)
2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp coconut sugar
¼ tsp himalayan salt
Begin by heating up your waffle maker according to the instructions and pre-heat the oven to around 100 degrees. Place an oven proof dish/baking tray in the oven just to keep the waffles warm whilst your cooking them
In a large jug, beat the egg yolks, coconut oil, vanilla and milk together. Then, in a separate, large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Make a well in the bowl of the dry ingredients and whisk in the wet ingredients. I like to use a handheld whisk for this. You want to make sure there are no lumps in the batter. Once beaten, pour this mixture back into the jug.
When your waffle maker is heated up, pour the mixture into one side, close the lid and continue to cook by manufacturer's instructions. I usually do 3-4 minutes on one side and then flip the machine over and cook for a further 2 minutes but you do what works best for your machine.
Once cooked, carefully remove the waffles and place in the baking dish in the oven to keep warm whilst you continue making the rest of the waffles.
Serve with fresh berries, maple syrup, almond butter and (my favourite) Coyo Coconut yoghurt.
