Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there in the world! Thank you so much for everything you’ve done and being a mum 24/7 non-stop.

This week, I’m sharing my easy waffle recipe with all of you keen foodies out there who might be looking for a simple recipe to make for breakfast for Mother’s Day. We all know waffles are a childhood favourite and a breakfast staple, so why not make this simple treat for your mum this weekend, served with a knob of butter and some maple syrup, or some freshly whipped cream and fruits? Either way, they are bound to enjoy your creations.

Of course, you could go for the fancy side of poached eggs with toast, but we all know the numerous risks of overcooking the eggs or getting not getting the picture perfect shape, so here’s a recipe for sweet childhood memories and appreciation.

How to make (no sugar) waffles

I am well aware that most recipes you find out there will add sugar, salt, and perhaps baking powder to the batter, but in this case, the waffles don’t need any sweetening because the topping you put on it will bound to sweeten it up.

First, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Then, make a well in the middle and drop in your egg. Whisk until it’s roughly combined. The reason why we use this method with a well is so that whilst you’re whisking in the middle, you’re slowly incorporating more and more flour from the sides into the middle until you reach the outside. This ensures that there are no big lumps of flour.

Then, pour in your milk bit by bit whilst whisking, until you get a smooth and silky batter.

Lightly brush your waffle iron with olive oil or spray a coating of non-stick cooking spray, then fill with 1/4 cup of batter.

Give it around 2-3 minutes on each side before flipping them over to allow them to brown and crisp up on the outside.

You’re gonna end up with around 5-6 waffles (which is just enough for you and mum!), depending on the size of your waffle iron, although you can double the recipe if you have to include dad.

Allow your waffles to cool down on a wire rack before stacking them up to allow the steam to evaporate or else your waffles won’t be crisp for long!

Simply garnish the top with a big dollop of whipped cream and some fresh fruits such as berries, and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey. I used apples here because I know that I can rely on them to be sweet enough.
