Oven Baked Easy Waffles
I suppose you all experienced a kind of "love at first sight" with certain utensils in the kitchen. So did I, with this silicone mold for Belgian waffles. I assumed, at first, it wasn't going to be bad at all, but after the first try, I fell in love completely for a long time. Not only me, the children also enjoyed the waffles with excitement. Also, this first waffle recipe that I chose is the most common and simple. Mix them all in 5 minutes, you can easily adjust the flavors and texture to taste (you can add oatmeal, cocoa etc.) They are moderately sweet, soft and tender. You make the topping of your choice - we had them with yogurt / sour cream and strawberry jam, or with melted chocolate. I've made this recipe 3 times this past week and I got exactly 4 waffles in one silicone shape, for a reasonable dessert, without being excessive.
you can add 1-2 extra tablespoons of sugar if you want them sweeter
or melted butter
Step by step
Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add in sugar, oil and salt, mix well with a whisk or spoon - no mixer is needed for this recipe.
Pour in the buttermilk or yogurt / kefir, stir again.
Add flour, baking powder and vanilla essence.
Stir all the ingredients well, until the mixture is not lumpy.
If you have a big and greedy family, you can make 8 waffles at a time. Place 2 waffle shapes in the big oven sheet and bake in the oven.
Ladle the batter into a mold with a large spoon. You can make thinner waffles if you put less batter.
Or you fill them properly, just like me, and then you'll have some chubby waffles :)
Place the sheet in the preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 15-20 minutes.
That's what they look like when they are done.
Use a towel or kitchen gloves to carefully turn the waffles out the onto the oven sheet, while they are hot.
It's recommended to keep them in the oven for another 5 minutes, without the silicone mold.
They are done, but I think they become a little crispier after these 5 minutes. So, try and see how you want them.
And ready! Quickly arrange them on the plates, while still hot. Fix them with whatever topping you want and savour with great pleasure :)
We had yogurt and strawberry jam ... then some melted chocolate, then jam without yogurt ...
