Griddle-pan waffles

Serves 4-6

  • 2 free-range eggs

  • 300 ml milk

  • 225 g self-raising flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 100 g unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus about 1 tsp extra

I'm a little in love with this. I was trying different ways of cooking waffles, and looked at a griddle pan and thought… Aha! You know

what, it works like a charm.




Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the milk and whisk to combine. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt then whisk until fully combined. Add the cooled melted butter and gradually stir it through the mixture. It's important not to stir the mixture any more after this or your waffles may be tough.



Place your griddle pan over a high heat, add the extra teaspoon of butter and as soon as it's melted pour in the waffle batter and spread it around to fill the pan. You could also make smaller waffles, if you prefer – you'll need to do 2 at a time.



Lower the heat to medium-low and cook the waffles for around 6 minutes, or until lightly golden on the bottom. Flip over and continue to cook for around 6 minutes, until golden and cooked through. (It can be tricky to flip a whole waffle, but be bold and go for it – if it breaks, don't worry, you can rock the rustic look.)



Give the waffle an extra couple of minutes on each side to crisp up, then serve them with your toppings. I like mine with bacon, egg and maple syrup, but you can serve them with berries and yoghurt, or whatever you like.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
