Today is the international waffle day, a very important day for all of us waffle lovers.
Fresh crispy, flakey waffles with some whipped cream, fresh berries and home-made (or bought for that matter) jam… Nothing can ever beat that!
They are the very best when just made, and I men JUST made. It is all about not being the designated waffle maker. Everybody will fight over the steaming hot waffles, and you can not make them fast enough. In a perfect world one would make a plate full of waffles and everybody would sit down and eat together, but in reality…. it’s like feeding hungry wolves. But is certainly is worth it. Let the indulgence begin.
Happy international waffle day!!!
1 1/2 cup of flour.
1 1/2 cup of heavy cream, whipped.
1 cup of seltzer water, ice-cold. This is the trick to making the waffles super flakey and crispy. If you don’t have seltzer water, use regular water it must be ice-cold.
2 oz (half a stick) of butter.
1/4 teaspoon of salt (or 3 pinches.)
Melt the butter and let cool.
Mix flour, salt & seltzer water together to a smooth (thick) batter.
Whip the heavy cream, “Fold” into batter together with the cooled butter.
Grease (butter or cooking spray) the waffle iron. Pour in some batter. Let the waffles turn golden brown.
Serve with fresh berries and whipped cream. You can of course also add any kind of syrup.
To make them a little fancy, you could sprinkle over some powdered sugar.
