My lovely mum was looking through her cupboards and found a stove top waffle iron, never used might I add. It’s the most amazing contraption, two separate pieces, one a base for stabilisation on the cook top, the other has a ball joint so that you can easily rotate the iron over in one motion. The pattern is also not quite like one I’ve ever seen before with an intricate floral pattern which imprints the waffles with crispy indents.
I didn’t get many photos of the finished product, I was lucky to get even one as the kids pounced and devoured them as soon as they were cooked.
2 1/4 cups of plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda and powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 egg yolks
2 cups buttermilk
3 egg whites
Preheat waffle iron. Cream butter and sugar together, add egg yolks, blend in flour, baking soda/powder and salt alternately with buttermilk. Whip egg whites in a seperate bowl till stiff peaks form and fold through into batter.
Spray waffle iron and ladle the batter onto the iron, Cook about 1 minute on first side, turn over iron and cook till the other side is golden, serve immediately.
