This is my ideal waffle eating scene: Waffle fresh out from the waffle maker – hot. I quickly spread butter on top and see the butter melts. Then I pour syrup all over the waffle. I must also make sure the syrup is evenly distributed in each square so that I can enjoy every inch of the waffle.
I don’t know about you but every time I see butter melts into waffles or pancake or bread, it gives me a joyful mood and every single time, I just can’t wait to dive into these. It just makes you realise that butter exist for a reason. It is meant to be melted on waffles. When you bite into the waffle, the combination of melted butter, sweet sticky syrup, cooked batter of flour, egg and milk is just heavenly.
Today I tried making waffles after we got a waffle maker from the store. I refer to the recipes from Pioneer Woman website and also from Thomas DeGeest in Food and Wine website. The links to these recipes will be listed at the end of this post.
Both recipes are good. The difference between these 2 recipes is that the first use baking powder and the later use yeast. The photos of waffle in this post are made referring to the recipe from Pioneer Woman website. I didn’t take photo for the second recipe because it was too late at night and I just want to eat and hit the the bed.
Next time, I want to try to make the soul food of America, waffles and fried chicken. I am really interested to taste this type of food. Sounded weird to me at first but who knows, it might earn a spot in my stomach.
