I love waffles, they are one of my favourite treats to have when I’m out, but they are not something that I’ve ever made at home or even thought about doing at home. Until now! VonShef kindly sent us a Quad Belgian Waffle Maker and to say that I was a little bit excited is an understatement. Alice also jumped for joy when she saw it, as she loves a waffle just as much as her mummy.
What I love about the Quad Belgian Waffle Maker, is that I can make one each for all of us in one go. I quickly whipped up the ingredients to make the waffles, which was really quick and easy to do and then I started to make the waffles.
To get started and for the first use you need to wipe the plates over with a damp cloth and then dry it.
When you plug it in the red light will come and stay on to indicate the waffle maker is on. The green light comes on to show you that it is heating up. Once its reached the required tempertatue the green light will go out. You then need to brush the plates with butter or oil.
When adding the batter you pour it into the centre of each plate and it fills up from there. Be careful not to overfill it. I think I may have added slightly too much, but it was ok.
Then gently close the lid and leave to cook between 5-8 minutes. It recommends that you try not to keep opening the lid to check them. You may also notice the green light going on and off, this is the waffle maker maintaining the required temperature and its not faulty.
Once the waffles are ready lift them out with a plastic or wooden utensil.
They lifted out really easily and onto the plate. You can then add any topping that you wish to. I added raspberries, cream and a drizzle of toffee sauce.
They tasted as good as they look and Alice has now decided that instead of pancakes for her birthday next week, she would like me to make waffles.
The Quad Belgian Waffle Maker from VonShef is priced at £19.99 and they have various sizes in the range.
