We were firmly a pancake family on Sundays. That was until our lovely American neighbours moved in across the street and we learnt about waffles.

We’ve been cranking them out ever since.

This recipe is slightly adapted from Heather Crosby’s of Yum Universe. It’s a lot lower in fat than your standard waffle recipe so make sure you cook them well to avoid sticking.
