Hi everyone and welcome to the giallozafferano kitchen! Today we’ll be preparing a sweet treat that’s also a great idea for Valentine’s day: the waffles. The waffle is a batter cake that is cooked between 2 hot plates, so we’ll need a waffle iron like this. It’s also ideal for a breakfast with your beloved! But let’s see together what ingredients we’ll need to make them:
• ½ cup (130 g) of butter
• 3 medium eggs
• 1 pinch of salt
• just over 1 cup (140 g) of flour • ½ cup (110 g) of sugar
• ¼ tsp of vanilla powder
• 2 tbsp of powdered sugar
Let’s make together the waffles:
First of all, separate the egg whites from the yolks, combine the egg yolks with half of the sugar in a large bowl and beat with a whisk until you have a fluffy, foamy mixture. Now pour in just under ½ cup of melted butter, after it has cooled a bit… and blend well.
After adding the butter, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt and the remaining half of the sugar. Now fold the stiff egg whites into the yolk mixture, very gently.
Finally, add the sifted flour and vanilla powder to the resulting mixture, little by little, and blend them together.
It’s time to use the waffle maker, so heat the iron until very hot and brush the 2 plates with the remaining butter… then pour ¼ of the batter… my waffle iron is 7 inches (18 cm) in diameter… drop the batter in the middle, in this way… and close it. Let it cook for at least 4-5 minutes, or until the waffle turns golden brown.
As you can see, the waffle is nice and golden brown, so lift it out of the iron, place on a dish and continue with the others.
Once all the waffles are cooked, trim the edge, perhaps on a cutting board… in order to get a lovely heart shape, perfect for Valentine’s day. So you can serve the waffle whole or divided into sections.
Finally, sprinkle the waffles with powdered sugar, and top them with maple syrup, fruit sauces, chocolate, ice cream or more… happy valentine’s day and see you next video recipe!
