Makes 10 waffles


560g plain flour
4g baking Soda
4g baking powder
10g icing sugar
25g butter (browned)
3 eggs
400ml buttermilk
100g yoghurt
Equipment: Waffle Iron


  1. Sift Flour, baking soda, baking powder and icing sugar and add to a large bowl. Make a well in the centre.
  2. In a small saucepan add the butter, you want to brown the butter but not burn it, just before it starts to turn from amber to brown take it off. Be careful as at this point, it’s extremely hot. Allow the butter to cool slightly before proceeding.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, yoghurt and browned butter. When combined, pour into the well. Mix everything together with a wooden spoon.                      

Tip: Mix it quite fast for about 1 minute by hand and then not at all after. The reason for this is to try and get it as smooth as possible before the baking powder and soda start to rise, if you mix it after this you might let the air out of the mix.

  1. Allow the mix to rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Spray the waffle iron with a little oil, or a little oiled kitchen paper will also work. When the waffle iron has come up to temperature add in the mix and cook for approx 2 ½ minutes on both sides.
  3. Cool on a wire rack or serve warm.
  4. These waffles are so versatile, top them off with berries, bananas, nuts, or cream and enjoy!
