Baked Waffles

Oven-baked Waffles are soft and airy like pillows; topped with delicious additions like ice cream, fresh berries or sweetened whipped cream.  Waffles are great for breakfast, brunch or anytime.  The batter can be altered for a savoury version, or an addition of frozen berries / chocolate chips will change the batter for an interesting waffle flavour.

Serve with a generous dusting of icing sugar or powdered cocoa for a chocolate version.

I used my silicon Waffle mould for perfect oven-baked crisp waffles.

MISE EN PLACE (preparation):

Measure the ingredients before you start preparing the waffle batter.

You will need:

  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Measuring spoons/cups
  • Kitchen scale
  • Lékué Waffle Moulds
  • Oven tray
  • Kitchen jug (to pour the batter into the moulds)
  • Cooling rack

YIELD: 8 Waffles

INGREDIENTS:

110g Butter  
3 Eggs, beaten  
410ml Milk 1  2/3 cups
240g Flour 2 cups
4 Tablespoons Sugar 60ml
2 teaspoons Baking Powder 10ml
½ teaspoon Salt 2-3ml

METHOD:

  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius. Melt the butter and mix it with the beaten eggs and milk.
  • Add the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Mix together and stir well using a whisk until you have a smooth mixture.
  • Place the Lékué Waffle Moulds on an oven tray. Pour the batter into the moulds and bake in the middle of the oven for 8-9 minutes.
  • Remove the baking tray from the oven, turn the waffles out of the moulds and back onto the baking tray.
  • Cook with the pattern side up for a further 4-5 minutes until they are golden.
  • Top with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, generously drizzle with maple syrup and add a scattering of berries.
