Today is Waffle day in Sweden. I don’t know about other countries but in Sweden it’s very common to buy waffle mixes that you just add some water to before you make your waffles. For years I used the mix without even reflecting on it but nowadays I always make my own batter. It’s simple, delicious and contains no unnecessary additives. I often experiment with different types of flour and in a couple of days I’ll also post a recipe for savoury cheese waffles served with smetana, chopped red onion and caviar! But until then enjoy these waffles with kiwi, passionfruit and ice cream as seen on the photo or the traditional way with whipped cream and jam.
100 gram butter
2 tsp baking powder
200 ml wheat flour
150 ml spelt flour
150 ml milk
250 ml sparkling water (makes the waffles crispier!)
Melt the butter. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix with an electric beater until smooth.
Heat your waffle iron.
Pour 75-100 ml of the batter onto the waffle iron and cook until crisp and golden. Serve right away together with whipped cream and jam, or fruit and vanilla ice cream.
NB: This recipe has only been tested with a Swedish waffle iron. Swedish waffle irons make thinner waffles than for example the ones used in Belgium.
