Mark and Chad bought me a Waffle Maker for Christmas. Well it was one of the presents they bought me and I thought and said "Oh no!! you not expecting me to make waffles - that is one thing I cannot make". How wrong was I???

The day after Christmas, Boxing Day or Day of Reconciliation, you never know what it is known as in South Africa. Nevertheless, it was the day after Christmas, Mark had left for Ballito and we decided to try out the waffle maker. I used the recipe that came with the waffle iron and they came out perfectly and tasted so good. I was so impressed that my very first attempt at making waffles was such a success, plus they tasted better than the waffles we have at Milky Lane. We served them with Fresh Cream; Ice Cream and Syrup. We made them again on New Year's Day. They are so easy to make - time consuming, but very easy.


  • Ingredients

1 3/4 Cup Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar
3 Eggs
1 3/4 Cup Whole Milk
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

  • Method
Pre-Heat waffle iron to hottest setting
Place a cooking sheet or wax paper under the iron to catch dripping batter whilst cooking.
Sift flour; baking powder and salt
Beat eggs thoroughly
Whisk in sugar; milk; oil and vanilla extract
Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and mix gently until combined - Don't over mix
Spray both surfaces of waffle iron with cooking spray.
Ladle 1/2 to 3/4 cup of batter on the iron and close it.
If there is excessive leakage use less batter for the next waffle
Cook until the waffle iron's indicator light shows that the cooking is complete or until steam comes out.
Adjust the heat setting on the waffle iron according to whether you want the waffles light or dark golden brown.
Lift the waffles out with a pair of tongs, they should be golden brown and crispy when done.
Serve immediately
Serve with fresh cream - whipped, syrup; ice cream, fresh strawberries.



  1. What Brand is your waffle machine? I want to get one and not sure which to buy

  2. It is a Sunbeam and it works really well
