The dream of a home cafe becomes a step closer to reality with an all-new retro waffle maker. The first item I went to would definitely be cafe-styled Flufy Belgian Waffles which goes so well with various toppings, including ice cream!
These Fluffy Belgian Waffles have a crisp exterior, and a fluffy interior. To achieve the fluffy, airy inside, I whipped up my egg whites to the meringue / stiff peak stage to incorporate more air. Simultaneously as the waffle maker heats the batter, these Fluffy Belgian Waffles to be cooked to crispy perfection.
Additionally, it’s possible to add flavour extracts such as Pandan, Coffee and Chocolate to create various flavour profiles.
However, something important to take note would be that these Fluffy Belgian Waffles tend to be denser if fully cooled. Hence, I always recommend heating them up using an air-fryer or oven to re-heat and regain some of its softness (though the original fresh made ones would certainly be the best!).
My favourite part would certainly be the choosing of flavours and toppings. In this particular shoot, I presented three flavours: Chocolate, Blueberry Jam and Good Ol’ Chicken and Waffles. Needless to say, these waffles go really well with ice cream too!
Currently, I am using my Bensonic 2-in-1 waffle maker (the 3-in-1 edition exists too) which I got from https://honeypicks.co/. For those who are interested in getting this retro-looking and highly functional waffle maker, there’s currently an existing promo code under my name for 15% off: Javier15
Without further ado, the recipe!
Fluffy Belgian Waffles Recipe
by Javier Tan October-10-2021
These Fluffy Belgian Waffles are up my alley with its crisp exterior and fluffy interor. Let your inner child run free decorating these!
2 Cups or 240g of All-Purpose / Cake-Flour
1/3 Cup or 70g of Granulated Sugar (adjustable depending whether this is for sweet or savoury)
2 Teaspoons or 8g of Baking Powder, sifted
2 Large Eggs, approx 55g each incl. shell, separated
1 Teaspoon or 5ml of Vanilla Essence
2 and 1/2 Tablespoons or 40g of Vegetable Oil, Flavourless (And extra for greasing)
1 Cup or 240ml of Milk
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and half the sugar.
Then, in separate mixing bowl, mix together the wet ingredients consisting of 2 egg yolks, vegetable oil, vanilla and milk.
Subsequently, mix in the wet ingredients into the dry in two halves using a whisk. You will form a slightly clumpy batter. Stop mixing once the flour is well incorporated or else the finished waffles might be dense.
Next, whisk in 1/3 of the egg whites to lighten the batter before folding in the remaining 2/3s. Please let me know if you require a similar video on this technique.
Then, cook according to instructions on your waffle maker and do grease your pan for an easier release. It took 6 minutes for mine!
Unmould and wait for these to cool for 5 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
