I take great pleasure in cooking for my family. If you take a look at my Instagram account (click here), you’ll see exactly what I mean. Since I got my Thermomix TM5, I’ve been making regularly Waffles for Baby Girl. Actually, I make them on Saturday mornings. We eat about 2 each and I freeze the rest. These are eaten during the week for breakfast or sometimes Baby Girl brings some as a school snack. This saves us so much time during the week and money too!
Here’s my Thermomix TM5. I’ve already written a blog post all about it. Click here for the post. Again, it’s expensive, but it’s totally worth it. 👍
Prepare all the needed ingredients and keep them within reach.
I followed the Thermomix’s waffle recipe word for word. It’s pretty good.
It’s good and really easy to make too. You basically just follow the instructions on the screen – pressing on the right button, putting the ingredients in the bowl, and waiting.
The recipe says that you need to let the batter rest for at least 1 hour. This is the time it takes for the baking powder to do its magic. Personally, I like to leave it longer. Another thing that I do is, like for a Pancake batter, I’ll make it the night before and let it rest overnight. I prefer the outcome and it saves me time in the morning too. When I became a working mom, it all became about quality food and saving time.
While I like to let the batter rest overnight, I however prefer to make the waffles fresh in the morning.
Heat the waffle maker. Make sure it is warm and greased. You may use one of those cooking oil sprays or brush with oil. Pour a ladle full of batter.
We like our Waffles in different ways. While I like them crunchy, the Husband and Baby Girl like them soft. I don’t know how many minutes I cook the waffles. I just go by instinct. That’s probably 2 minutes on both sides. The waffle maker gets hotter and hotter so after a couple of waffles it takes less time to cook them.
You can enjoy the waffles as they are, or you can go big like we do. Chocolate Hazelnut spread, powdered sugar, and fresh fruits. Yuummm! Plus the Husband as the perfect view. What a pleasure!
I let the extra waffles cool down completely before putting them in a storage bag and then transferring them to the freezer. Whenever we want one during the week, Baby Girl or I get one, pop it in the bread toaster, and enjoy! 😋
