I finally got myself a waffle-maker while shopping in town on Thursday. This item had been on my shopping list for a long time but I just did not have the time to go buy one or that the model I'm eyeing at was out of stock at the store. In fact, I wasn't hopeful to be able to buy on that day, and was just trying my luck at the household department. I enquired abt the waffle-maker when I saw the display set. The sales person told me that it's the only set left, but I did not want to get that set coz the waffle plate was chipped off at some corners... so she suggested that I try another shop within that building... and off I went! Guess I was lucky that day... I managed to get a new set from the store... and they only had 2 sets left.
Since I had the waffle-maker on my shopping list, I had been gathering several waffle recipes online too! And today is just the day to try out my new toy and a new recipe.
I'm really happy with the outcome... the recipe's great and the waffles were wolfed down by my kids once ready! However, once the waffles cooled down, it turned soft... hm.. I'm thinking of twitting the recipe next time, replacing some of the plain flour with rice flour, hopefully it'll work fine.
Here's the recipe for you to try. I get 14pcs of waffles from 1 recipe. You can create different variations to it and get chocolate, pandan or even strawberry flavoured waffles from this recipe. Happy waffling!
