You really can't go wrong with waffles and they are so, so, so yummy.  If you are a waffle fan, then I definitely recommend that you buy a waffle iron.  It will be worth the small investment.

Anyway, I want to show you how simple they are to make.  Through doing a little bit of research I realised that the batter is the same as scotch pancake/drop scone batter (because scotch pancakes are the english equivalent of american pancakes/waffles)

I used Mary Berry's recipe (it makes 4 waffles):

100g flour
25g caster sugar
1 egg
150ml milk


1. Place the flour and sugar in a bowl and make a well in the centre.

2.  Add the egg into the well and a little of the milk

3.  Whisk from the middle until the mixture is smooth, adding a little bit of milk if it too think to mix at all (but the less milk the better)

4. Once smooth, add the milk a little at a time.  Whisking each time.

5. Using a non-flammable pastry brush, brush on some oil onto the waffle irons.  Making sure to get into the crevices. 

6. Using a ladle, place some mixture onto the irons, making sure you can't see any visible iron.

7.  Cook the waffles for 2 mins (although it will vary depending on the iron)

8.  Cover in maple syrup (I suppose other options may work as well) and enjoy!
