Whether for Easter brunch, Mother's Day or just a regular Sunday breakfast, these Tonic Water Waffles are going to be our new family favourite waffle! Crispy outside and soft and fluffy inside!
2 cups flour
2 tbsps sugar
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
pinch or 2 of nutmeg
4 tbsps butter, melted and cooled
1 - 355 ml (12 oz) can tonic water
oil for waffle iron
Note: Don't use leftovers from last night's gin and tonic, the tonic water should be freshly opened because you want the bubbles not a flat tonic.
Whisk the dry ingredients together...flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Add butter, eggs, tonic water and whisk to combine.
Lightly oil the waffle iron and pour batter in, enough to fill but not overflow when closed. It might be a trial and error thing until you find out what amount is right for your iron.
Cook as per your waffle iron's instructions, usually until the light goes out.
Serve with syrup and fruit
You can see here just how light and airy they are!
Is it Sunday yet?
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
