Basic Waffles


Waffles <3


In the last couple of months there has been a significant rise in the number of waffle related blog posts; simple recipes paired with drool worthy photos of freshly made waffles drizzled heavily with syrup, topped with fresh fruit or generous scoop of ice-cream.
 Nothing more delicious than freshly made waffles with a large knob of butter..
Although tempted to jump on the bandwagon, I had no waffle maker. To acquire one proved to be quite the task. It seemed that every store I popped into had run out of waffle makers!  Very strange. Anyway my lovely mother ended up purchasing one for me from a pretty inconspicuous store, and so I am now a proud owner of a lovely waffle maker. 
Waffles served with Passion fruit curd
For my first waffle post, I decided to stick to a no-fuss, no-frills, basic recipe. After all everyone needs a basic waffle recipe in his/her life! The batter can be made the day before and refrigerated but it’s also perfectly fine to be made for immediate consumption. 

I served these waffles with a large knob of butter and passion fruit curd. Crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside, light and delicious! If I say so myself.
