Waffle Maker

Kiddos at home love pancakes and waffles . And who else doesn’t? Warm Waffles topped up with whipped cream and maple Syrup. Slurp !! How about adding some sliced fruits to mellow the indulgence.

I am actually thinking aloud of all the healthy options on a waffle maker – Like a Lentil Waffle accompanied with chutneys or a Waffle Sandwich loaded with delicious roasted vegetables.

When we visited Belgium two years ago, we all fell in love with the slurpy Belgian waffles served outside the famous monument Mannequin Piss. They had so many options for indulgence toppings that we were left speechless and still drooling over it.

Since then Waffles have been on our minds and when the gorgeous team at Sage sent me a Smart WaffleMaker.. my joy knew no bound. Shiny, Robust and just the thing to make some versatile Waffles. Let your imaginations run wild. With the instruction booklet provided and few basic starter recipes, I made a classic Waffle Batter following the proportion to T !! Voila.. That evening was a treaty dinner . One of the Kiddos slathered Nutella and added sliced Banana whilst the other one enjoyed with Maple Syrup and Cream. Leaving behind all the rules, we topped the waffle with loads of cream, kiwi’s and strawberries. I actually skipped my dinner 😉

With the 2 left over Waffles, I wrapped them in an aluminium foil and saved them for the next day. When the craving stuck us in the morning, all I had to do was to pop them in a toaster and Enjoy!
