I love breakfast. I’m one of those annoying people who actually eat breakfast to kick start my day. I get up at about 6 or 7 before work and shovel some cereal or oatmeal into my mouth before getting dressed. On the weekend I like to make something special. I’m a new convert to the almighty waffle. The combinations are endless!
Waffles by Tara Duggan has just about every kind of waffle you can think of, savory and sweet. The beginning of the book provides an introduction to waffles, ingredients, different types of batters, waffle types and equipment.
Chapters include Breakfast & Brunch, Lunch & dinner and Dessert. All of the basic waffle recipes are in the back of the book. I made two types of waffle so far, S’mores Waffles which were to die for and also Chocolate Waffles. I’m in love with this book. The pictures are mouth watering and I was surprised at the amount of different combinations. Ingredients are listed in American cups, ounces and grams. I can’t wait to try the oatmeal waffles and ham and cheese waffle sandwiches next.
I didn’t actually own a waffle maker until a few weeks ago. Lakeland kindly sent me a small waffle stick maker to review for Christmas. I can’t get over how cute it is! It’s a very basic model, inexpensive and makes 5 small waffle sticks at a time. A great starter model. Plug it in wait a few seconds for it to heat up and you’re ready. It’s small pink and looks like a toy but as it gets very hot it’s for adult use only. I made big batches of waffles and stuck the extra waffle sticks in the freezer. It’s easy to throw them in the oven or toaster for a quick snack.
Lakeland provided me with the waffle maker and I was sent a copy of Waffles by the publisher for review
