My 152 Waffle Days

My 152 Waffle Days // Mono + Co

[ Updating in progress. 07.12.17]
Determined not to reduce my waffle maker into a white elephant, I set my mind on making waffles 152 times with it simply because I got it at $152.  Then it will cost me just $1 per use.

Coconut milk + pandan juice version.   I will add more pandan juice next round, I want the batter to smell like kaya,but the waffle might end up looking more green too 🙂

Everytime I walk past a local bakery that sells freshly made waffles, the aroma lures me in.  With the extra pandan leaves that I got for free from the market, I blitz them with some water (as little as possible, so that the juice extracted will be concentrated) in a food processor and squeeze through a cotton pouch/ cloth to make fresh pandan juice.  This can be kept up to 3 days inside the chiller, better than letting the leaves dry out on the kitchen counter.

I added the juice to make pandan waffles, but the taste wasn’t distinct enough.  I have since found 3 other recipes , here, here and here that incorporate coconut milk/oil (and more sugar) to bring out the pandan aroma better.

Same recipe as No.6, but deserved a mention since it is cooked by my other half.

Tried with a different recipe from here.  Kids find it lighter that the previous recipe I have been adapting with.  When made fresh, these are really crispy outside.  The rise is also impressive, thanks for the 4 teaspoons of baking powder in the recipe.  I adapted with milk powder instead of fresh milk, recipe originally calls for 1+3/4 cup of milk, I replaced with 4 tablespoons of milk powder and 1+3/4 cups of water.

Interestingly, the author mentioned that the batter can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week.  I always make my batter just before cooking.  Like to try this out to see if the waffles made with overnight batter still rise well.  Then breakfast making won’t be so rush.

Had some leftover steamed pumpkin after making bread, dump them into my waffle batter.  Nothing else in the recipe is altered.

Chocolate ones this time.
Separated the yolks and whites again.
Stick to 2 tablespoons of sugar since it’s chocolate flavour, good to have a higher level of sweetness.

Made one with replacing half of the flour in the recipe with wholewheat version.  I also added another tablespoon of sugar, saw online that this will make even crispier waffles, but only if it is eaten immediately.  Will do away with this extra sugar next time.

I also separated the egg yolks and white and beat the egg whites into meringue before folding it into the batter.
