I absolutely adore cinnamon and will consciously try to work it into as many dishes as humanly possible. Having said that, the overnight waffles are still the favourite in this house but these come in a very close second.
Now I know some of you are going to read the recipe, see you have to whisk the egg whites and move right along. I know this because I was one of you. The reason ricotta pancakes never get a work out in this house is for that very reason, having to separate the eggs and whisk the whites. But here’s the thing, it takes about three minutes. Three. So just do it ok? Ok.
I bought the boys a waffle maker for Christmas. They’d mentioned wanting one on and off throughout the year but it still blew their collective mind when it was unwrapped.
Naturally in the weeks leading up to Christmas I was researching recipes for waffle batter and settled on two from my spirit baker Smitten Kitchen.
These far outshone any of the other recipes we tried. They are rich in flavour and so delightfully crispy.
It needs you to start the night before but it is far from arduous. You also have to leave the batter out overnight which may make you cock your head but just do it ok? In the morning the mix can look a bit funky but stir in the eggs and baking powder and brace for the best waffles around.
I can’t offer any real cooking advice as the Breville machine I bought has it all built in and you just select your type and it cooks it accordingly. Bless it.
