Bank Holiday weekend breakfast – Gingerbread waffles

One of my favourite things about long weekends is the opportunity to cook a delicious breakfast.  My mum bought me a waffle machine for Christmas.  At first I thought it was one of those bits of kitchen equipment that would gather dust, but I’ve used it lots.  It’s really quick and easy to whip up a batch of delicious waffles.


Gingerbread Waffles (Serves 4)

2 eggs
100g caster sugar
100g melted butter
200g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
200ml milk
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon

1. Turn the waffle machine on so that it will start heating up while you make the batter.  Spray the surfaces generously with a cooking oil spray, such as Frylight.

2. Whisk the eggs with the sugar and whisk well.  Add in the melted butter and whisk again into a smooth batter.

3. Add the flour, baking powder and spices and stir the mixture together.

4. Gently whisk in the milk, making sure the batter has a smooth consistency.

5. When the waffle maker has warmed up, placed the required amount of mix onto the baking surface.  (For my machine its about 2 tablespoons of batter for each waffle.)  Close the waffle iron and let each waffle bake for around 3 minutes.  They should be golden brown.

Serve with sliced banana and a drizzle of maple syrup
