For my second Goldilocks challenge, I made a waffle (a dough-based cake cooked in a waffle-iron). Actually, this is not really a challenge at all because waffle-making is absolutely easy, even kids can do it. I love waffles, so every now and then I prepare this at home for our afternoon snacks.
For this Goldilocks waffle, the recipe is:
- 3/4 cup All-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 3/4 tbsp baking powder
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup evaporated milk
- hotdog or cheese strips for filling(actually, you can put any filling)
- Preheat waffle maker.
- In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and sugar. Sift 3 times.
- In another bowl, combine egg, water and milk. Manually whisk together to incorporate.
- Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients. Mix until smooth.
- Using wooden barbecue stick, skewer the hotdog or cheese strips (or for the cheese, you can just put it on the batter).
- Fill 1/8 cup of batter in each well of the waffle maker. Carefully placed skewed hotdogs or cheese onto the batter.
- Pour another 1/8 cup of batter on top of the filling just enough to cover it.
- Cook the waffle for 2-4 minutes or until light brown in color.
This is my waffle maker and the waffles I made (12 small sizes of cheese waffles). I used a long lollipop sticks because I didn’t have the wooden barbecue sticks when I made these waffles. I just let the waffles cool first before inserting the lollipop sticks.
The verdict: Hubby and our two assistants in the internet cafe said that the taste of the waffles is really yummy. However, hubby said that I need to improve the texture (that’s his word) of the waffles. He rated it 7 out of 10 for the taste. Not bad!
