Baking the Perfect Belgian Waffles

You may have been looking for a great Belgian Waffle recipe for a long time. Almost all of the ones we tried were good but they were never as good as we knew they could be. A perfect waffle is crispy on the outside and light tender on the inside, we do not want them to become cakey or heavy.

Challenged enough to create a perfect Belgian Waffle? Below is a simple recipe, perfect for occasional treats with our family and friends. Waffles are awesome served with warm maple syrup or our favourite flavours of syrup, topped with sliced fresh berries, bananas and some yummy vanilla ice cream.

Makes 7 Belgian Waffles

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted

Preparation

  • Combine flour, leaveners, salt and sugar and whisk to mix. Add water, egg yolks and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Whisk in melted butter.
  • Beat egg whites in another bowl to stiff peaks, then fold into batter, half at a time.
  • At first, it will seem very lumpy, but keep folding and it will smooth out.
  • Warm up your Ellane Belgian Waffle Baker and pour the waffle batter into it. Bake for approximately 5 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve hot with fresh sliced strawberries, blueberries, bananas, warm syrup and vanilla ice cream.

Different Methods of Cooking

Idul Fitri Festival celebration 2010 only seems like yesterday – it was precious time of the year as we encompassed the opportunity to express clemency and compassion with our families, partners, friends and colleagues. This new month, all of us should be fully recharged, energised and fresh as we are moving towards the end of year 2010.

Family Cooking is Fun

Nothing bonds loved ones together as much as a shared meal. And cooking those meals together holds the potential to strengthen those. “Cooking” is the application of heat to food. Cooking is normally done either in an oven or on a cooktop of some sort: gas or electric, though occasionally a grill or griddle is used.

The two basic methods in modern times have been the chemical and the electrical: one either burns some combustible substance such as wood, coal, or gas, or one runs an electrical current through a resistance element (that, for instance, is how toasters work), whether in a “coil” or, more recently, inside a halogen-filled bulb.

Microwaving, an oven-only technology, is a third method, wherein the heat is generated directly in the food itself. It cooks food by dielectric heating by using microwave radiation to heat water and polarised molecules within the food. The excitation is fairly uniform, leading to food being more evenly heated throughout than generally occurs in other cooking techniques.

Least but not last method, which increasingly becomes more and more popular and valued these days is induction cooking. Induction is a completely different method from all other cooking technologies – it does not involve generating heat which is then transferred to the cooking vessel / pot, instead it makes the cooking vessel / pot itself the original generator of the cooking heat.
