A recipe for making the easiest and the yummiest Waffles in Oven. This might just be the best thing to happen to Sunday breakfasts.
The resident 10-year-old loves waffles but an investment for a waffle iron seemed like such a waste of money. Besides my kitchen is really overflowing with gadgets and I just can’t accommodate another one. But then I discovered this easy way of making waffles in the oven. And I swear it is the best thing that happened to our Sunday breakfast.
The idea really started after a discussion on waffle irons in a food group I am part of. Somebody suggested a silicon waffle mould that worked well for them. I put it in the cart having very little hope that it will work. Those crisp from outside and soft from inside waffles in an oven? Seemed too good to be true.
But since it was some 800 odd bucks I placed an order anyways and then it went in the oveflowing dungeon that is my kitchen cabinet. I completely forgot about it till 2 weeks ago.
And then the child complained and said in a typical 10 yr old whiny tone “You still haven’t made waffles for me, I think I am going to make them myself”. Like a good mother (read mother left with no choice) I did some reading, modified the recipe I usually make for clients in a waffle iron. And I think I surprised even myself with the results.
Beautifully crisp waffles that were near perfect. Next time I will try them with whole wheat but even with maida, this recipe is a keeper, folks.
And if you make it, do share a picture with me. Tag #sinamon on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. I would love to hear from you so do share the good things, the brickbats and if you want any clarifications about the recipe.

On a totally different note, I miss those smileys when I write a post sometimes, wondering if it is a sign of WhatsApp addiction. Like right now I totally wanted to use that laughing crying walla smiley.

Could you share a recipe for waffles that could be made using a cast iron waffle maker
this one will work in the waffle iron too
Can I use vegetable oil instead of butter
I haven’t tried it with oil so can’t say
Just made these with wholewheat for my 1 year old with berry compote. We loved them! It made great American style pancakes too. ??

This looks great! I just bought a cast iron waffle maker, and wondered if it could be used in the oven.
