If you shop at Costco like I do then you'll want to go and pick up one of these waffle irons from Nordicware! At $15, it is a fabulous deal and I love that I don't have to store a huge, clunky machine.
Simple to use and easy to clean, all you have to do is heat the iron up on the stove (both sides) then pour your batter, wait, flip, wait and voila! Delicious waffles!
I used the recipe on the packaging and the waffles were spectacular. Light, fluffy, thick and not to sweet. Waaaayyy better than the frozen variety and better for you too. :)
(Recipe from http://www.nordicware.com/)
4 eggs, seperated
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
Lightly brush or spray inside of waffler with vegetable oil.
Preheat waffler for 3 minutes per side over a burner on medium heat.
Beat egg yolks until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and butter, mixing until combined. In a seperate bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Add to egg mixture, and beat well. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter.
Pour 1 cup of batter into greased waffler and close the top. Cook for about 1 minuute, flip, then cook the other side for about 2 minutes, until golden brown.
Remove waffles with plastic fork or spatula. Serve with your favourite syrup, butter, berries, fruit and/or whipped cream. Enjoy!
