This waffle was really a comfort food to me especially when I was on the way home after school in winters. I only paid two dollars and was able to keep my stomach full and warm. I bought a waffle maker in the first few months of moving to Australia so that I can make this Hong Kong style waffle whenever I desire. Making this comfort snack becomes so much easy and handy.
- 120 gm cake flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs, whisked
- 20 gm caster sugar
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk (or milk)
- 50 gm melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- water, to adjust
- Stir caster sugar into whisked eggs until dissolved completely. Pour in milk. Add melted butter and vanilla extract. Stir well. Sift in flour together with baking powder and combine well. Set aside for 10 minutes. Add some water to suit your preferred thickness of batter as the batter would become a bit thicker after setting aside for a while.
- Pour 1/2 cup of batter into a preheated waffle maker. Cook until lightly brown. Done.
Note:The serving of waffle in traditional Hong Kong style is quite unique. Spread butter, peanut butter, condensed milk, sprinkle with white sugar. Fold in half and enjoy. Having said that, these extras are optional, depending on individual preferences.
Waffle with vanilla ice-cream is a good choice as well.
