I am very excited about starting my German waffles recipe series with you today. I wanted to blog about waffles for a long time, because they were an essential part of my childhood, but unfortunately, my wafflemaker did not survive the move.
I was excited to be asked by Domu whether there would be any products that I would like to review – and I tentatively asked them whether they do waffle makers and they replied “yes we have one”. I was especially pleased that the waffles are produced in a flower-heart shapes – just like my mum’s one.
It is actually a little better than my mum’s one because it is a double waffle maker. All the waffle makers I had in the past were singles, and making waffles starts as being really exciting but can turn into a bit of an arduous undertaking – which when all you want to do is eat the waffles can be a little annoying.
What else can I tell you about VonShef Double Wafflemaker? The temperature control is easy enough to use – which is very important as you want them to be warm, a little firm and golden brown when you remove them. And at £22.49 I can tell you that this machine will definitely add to your kitchen more than it will cost you. It is far more compact than my previous one, so doesn’t take up too much space either. Most importantly after today I can confirm: they product super yummy waffles.
There are so many waffle recipes that I want to share with you, that I was not sure which one to post first. After a little thought I decided to start with a basic one.
We usually have this recipe at home; and my mother would serve these waffles either with a little icing sugar on top, or mix it up with a little cinnamon. This waffle recipe serves as the base for a lot of different topics. One of my personal favorite is Nutella and Banana but I am also a big fan of apple sauce. My husband has his exclusively with Maple Syrup. What topping would you choose?
