Greek Yoghurt Waffles

Last Sunday, I went to Zampano’s or brunch with Alison and Eliza. You can read more about it here. But it has also gotten me thinking about making my own waffles. I have never made them – always had them in eating establishments or even frozen ones, but I have never made batter and cooked it myself. So, this is the first time for me!

As you can see, I loved it! I managed to buy a waffle mould from Lidl, and I made a big batch of waffles for breakfast (and lunch! – as you can see with the fried chicken and pepper gravy with hot sauce pictured below…….)

This recipe should make enough for 4 people, depends on how much batter you use per mould (or the waffle iron/waffle maker).

Ingredients:

  • 200g of all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 100g of butter, melted and cooled
  • 100g of caster sugar
  • 1 cup of thick greek yoghurt mixed with water and mix until it reaches 1 3/4 cups of thick liquidgreekyogwaffles03
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract (or other flavourings of your choice – you can use spices if you plan to make savoury waffles)

 

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven (if using silicone waffle moulds) to 200 degrees C.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the egg yolks, butter, sugar, yoghurt liquid and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly until smooth.
  4. Gently mix the flour with the liquid mix, until you don’t see any big lumps. But careful to not overmix!greekyogwaffles04
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until it reaches stiff peaks.
  6. Fold the egg whites into the batter, gently.greekyogwaffles05
  7. Once the mixture is ready, you can start cooking the waffles – if you are using a waffle iron/waffle maker, cook for about 4-5 minutes, until golden brown.greekyogwaffles06
  8. If like me, you are using waffle moulds to bake in the oven, fill up the mould to halfway (or most 2/3) up, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. greekyogwaffles07
  9. Once cooked, (be careful, the silicone can be very hot!) tip over the mould over a cooling rack. greekyogwaffles08
  10. Serve immediately, with syrup, honey, fruits, or even fried chicken!chickenwaffles02
