Let's get the garden season started - Waffle

What a mild winter we have over here in Switzerland, mid February and I've already spent an entire afternoon in the allotment. We won't complain - it's heaven! And if it get's cool a cup of tea and some waffles always help ;-)

You'll need:

  • 250 gr flour
  • 20 gr yeast
  • 1/4 l milk
  • 20 gr butter
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 50 gr of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • icing sugar

Mix the yeast with a bit of milk. Soften the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the rest  of the milk and stir. Now add the sugar, salt, eggs and yeast mixture. Mix this mixture into the flour and stir well. Let the dough rest for a while.
Oil the iron well before you start putting the dough on. Don't let the iron become too hot. Fill with a good dollop of the batter and carefully bake over the fire. After the first minute you can start to check if the waffle are ready. The iron can be opened - you need to be careful thoug, do it slowly. If the waffle are still pale continue to bake. When done take them out and sprinkle on some icing sugar and eat immediately.
