With Christmas coming up, I’ve noticed that waffle makers (see below re links) have made a bit of a resurgence and seem to be a very popular gift for teens and adults alike.

The good old waffle can be made in so many ways. I have seen an amazing range of waffle recipes including the traditional sweet, savoury, vegan, paleo, low carb, high protein and “healthier” versions doing the rounds. Our philosophy on foods is that there are no “good” or “bad” foods. Eating and living “healthy” is about the whole package, a healthy relationship with all foods. Every food can fit into a balanced diet, in the right context.

Saying that, here is a basic waffle recipe, for a waffle maker: (should make 4)

•250g Flour (plain) (you can experiment with types of flour and even use oats)
•7g Baking powder
•20g Caster sugar
•475ml Milk (your choice of milk)
•2 Eggs
•30ml oil/melted butter

Preheat a waffle iron.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, and baking powder.
Pour in milk, eggs, and oil. Stir until well combined.
Cook in a preheated waffle maker using ½- 1/3 cup of batter Amount of batter really varies based on waffle iron.

Serve hot with fresh berries, and crème fraiche, bananas and berries, or orange and dark chocolate for Christmas day (a slant on the chocolate orange).

I would love to hear your combos.
