I haven’t been well recently so I’m sorry for the lack of blogging! However I did make some pretty awesome apple cinnamon waffles! These are the ultimate feel better meal – horrendously bad for you but oh so delicious. These would make a great birthday breakfast or a lovely pudding after a fancy meal.
You will need: 250g plain flour, a teaspoon of baking powder, 30g caster sugar, 475ml milk, a teaspoon of cinnamon, 2 eggs, 30ml melted margarine
For the caramelised apples: 2 apples, 50g sugar, 50g butter, 1 tablespoon cinnamon.
Place the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar in a mixer and whisk them together. Break your eggs into a jug with the milk in it and beat together. Add to the mixer and whisk everything together until little bubbles start to form. Leave to stand.
Turn the waffle maker on and when it is ready place a little bit of margarine on the plates to stop the waffles from sticking. Pour a ladle of waffle mix onto the plates and close the waffle maker until the waffles are cooked. Our machine has a light which says when they are done, check the instructions on yours.
For the apples heat the butter in a pan until it starts to melt then add the sugar. Peel the apples and chop into slices. When the caramel starts to bubble pop the apples into the pan. Leave on a high heat until the apples are soft – poke with a knife to check.
Layer the waffles with ice cream and apples and then pour the extra syrup over the waffles.
This is a fab treat, if you have any extra waffles they will last for a couple of days. The apples should be really sweet and tasty, with a crunchy toffee coating.
