I love making pancakes and Yorkshire puddings. One thing I’ve never attempted to make – probably because I don’t have the proper kit – is waffles.
The waffles that you tend to find in supermarkets never look very appetising and the ones at foodie markets are always really expensive. Waffles, like pancakes and Yorkshire puds, are basically eggs, flour, milk and fat… with the addition of yeast or baking powder.
I think I’d make good use of one of these waffle makers – or waffle iron – especially one that can store away in a kitchen drawer when not in use. I don’t have the spare counter-top space to have one permanently out on show – even if it’s as attractive to look at as the Dualit example. Also, much as I like its dual-purpose as a toasted sandwich maker, I think I’d choose the mid-range Nordic Ware version.
