Hi all, just wanted to share this short recipe here for those who want a healthier waffle, but don't like the taste/texture of whole wheat, or just want something different.
I use a very heavy stovetop iron, so my timings are very likely going to be quite different to yours. So I didn't include them.
175g AP flour
50g ground oatmeal
75g whole grain corn flour
50g wheat germ (toasted)
2 large eggs
30g granulated sugar
1/3 tsp salt
1.5 level tsp instant dry yeast
80g unsalted butter, melted
1. Sift (optional, I don't do it) and mix all dry ingredients together
2. Whisk eggs or beat with electric mixer until very frothy
3. Add eggs to dry ingredients, mix, add slightly cooled molten butter, mix again
4.Add milk/buttermilk gradually while mixing so as not to form lumps
You can mix this quite vigorously if you want, there isn't much gluten to develop, and what does develop has plenty of time to relax so it will not give you tough waffles.
For best results refrigerate overnight (12h) or let rise on the countertop at least 3h.
Preheat waffle iron, grease it, pour in the batter and cook as you would any other waffle. These do rise quite a bit, so don't overfill.
I like mine with some creme fraiche and blueberry sauce. Maple syrup also works great, as does chocolate.
Hope you enjoy them :)
