Luscious Lotus Waffles

Luscious Lotus Waffles




Sometimes indulging right in the morning is the right way to start a day. You can always have a cheat day and today was my cheat day for indulging, this yummy waffles that are crispy outside and soft inside with a dollop of vanilla ice cream takes it to a whole new level. What else are weekend breakfasts for?

I have been daydreaming of this combination, for a few days now. Finally had this, it was sooo delicious and the combination of hot waffles with the cold ice cream is deadly.

This is my go-to waffle recipe that has always given me the best results. Never turns out soggy. I completely detest soggy waffles. I like them crispy and warm. And if you have been following me on Instagram or any social media platform, you might already know my love for lotus spread and their biscuits. I just love it! And I mostly have my waffles with maple syrup, chocolate sauces, fresh cream and fruits. But ever since this idea hit me, I never got a chance to try this. It was oh soooo good! If you are a health freak don't even think of trying this hahaha. Just joking. I mean, this is a super indulgent breakfast waffle. So if you love sweet mornings when your sweet cravings hit real hard, no better way to start your day.

Even though slightly guilty, I was super happy, and to balance the calories I consoled myself with a glass of orange juice. Lol. But let me tell you, this is the best waffle combo, out-of-the-world good!

Why eat out to munch on these yummies, when you can make this at home if you have a waffle maker? Also if you don't have a waffle maker use grill pans or even make pan cakes out of it! ๐Ÿ˜ The perfect summer breakfast I must say. A few ingredients and 15-20 minutes of your time and ta daaaa.
Now, do you want to know the secret to my Crispy waffles? Well, the rule of thumb to make the perfect waffles is to allow them to cook no more than 5-8 minutes, they tend to dry out too much, which takes away its actual texture. Now another tip is to keep your waffles, once cooked, in a preheated oven for a couple of minutes on the wire rack directly to crispen up, a tip my fellow foodie friends suggested. Well, my recipe doesn't need that extra step, for that all you have to do is add a little cornflour and voila! You have the perfect waffles of all time๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜ and for that perfect soft insides whip up your egg whites to stiff peaks and fold them in your waffle mixture. Always comes out perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ˜‹ 

These warm waffles are topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, which is drizzled with some lotus spread sauce. Drooling already? Well, let's not waste any time and make some right away!


Ingredients : (makes for 2-3 people) 

  • 1 egg, yolk and white separated
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 3/4cup All purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Wheat flour*
  • 1/4 cup Corn flour
  • 4 slightly crumbled Lotus Biscoff Biscuits 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp Lotus biscoff spread ( microwave 30 seconds) 
  • Vanilla Ice cream as required

Instructions:

  1. Separate the egg yolk and white. Whisk the egg yolk, buttermilk, oil and vanilla essence.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cornstarch, crumbled lotus biscoff biscuits and salt) and set aside.
  3. Whisk the egg whites with sugar well using an electric mixer until stiff peaks are formed. (if you invert your bowl, the whites shouldn't fall off)
  4. Gradually and slowly add the wet ingredients mixture to the dry ingredients and slowly mix.
  5. Next, gently fold in the whipped egg whites into the mixture, be careful not to deflate the whipped egg white, lumps are totally fine. 
  6. In a preheated waffle maker, pour the batter and cook for 5-8 minutes, no more. 
  7. Finally, serve it with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle some of your lotus sauce. Enjoy! 


Notes :
  • You may use 1 cup All purpose flour.
  • If your waffles doesn't crispen, a tip is to keep your waffles, once cooked, in a preheated oven for a couple of minutes on the wire rack directly to crispen up. 
  • Double the recipe if you are making it for more people, considering only 1 tbsp extra sugar.
