  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Waffles

  • 2 cups (250 g) plain/all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup (237 ml) milk
  • 1 cup (237 ml) yoghurt
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (plus a little more for brushing on the waffle iron)

Toppings

  • Strawberries, bananas or raspberries, sliced
  • Maple syrup
  • Chocolate, melted (see note 1)

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda (bicarb) and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, milk, yoghurt, and melted butter (adding the butter last). The mixture may be a little lumpy from the butter, which is fine.
  2. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients to combine.
  3. Preheat your waffle iron. Brush the butter onto the iron using a pastry brush or paper towel. Cook waffles until golden and crisp. You will need about 1/2 cup of batter per waffle. Depending on your waffle iron, these will take 2-4 minutes to cook.
  4. Butter the waffle iron in between batches. Serve the waffles immediately or keep them warm in a 100°C/200°F oven until you are ready.

Notes

Note 1 – This is the perfect recipe for leftover Easter chocolate. Melt the chocolate in 20-second intervals, stirring until you reach your desired consistency.

 

Note 2 – As the toppings for waffles are generally sweet, this recipe does not include sugar. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the dry ingredients to sweeten your waffle mixture if desired.

MAKE AHEAD

Freeze the cooked waffles in a container or reusable sandwich bag, separating them with baking paper if needed for up to 2 months. Thaw completely on the counter for 30 minutes. Reheat by popping into the toaster.
