It only takes about 4 minutes to heat up ...
... then another 3 minutes to cook the waffles ...
They are delicious! Especially with runny syrup all over them. Can't wait for breakfast time tomorrow so I can have more!
Here's the recipe I use. We've been able to get 3 breakfasts out of this - that's 12 waffles.
9 oz plain flour
1 dessertspoon baking powder (= 2 teaspoons)
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 teaspoon salt
16 fl oz semi-skimmed milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1. In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
2. In a jug measure the milk, beat in the eggs and oil and then add to the dry ingredients and mix well.
3. Pour the batter on to the hot waffle iron until it's just touching the edges of the design.
4. Cook for 3 minutes.
