I’m still very excited about my new old fashioned waffle iron, so this morning I decided to make some good old fashioned waffles. Since I had bought some Baileys the day before, I mixed it into some creme fraise with honey to go with the waffles. All in all it turned out super delicious, so I thought I would share the recipe here.
Old Fashioned Waffled (Makes approx. 4 waffles)
- 200 g all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 75 melted butter
- 4 dl milk
- 1 egg
- Sugar or honey (optional)
- Creme Fraise
How to make it:
- Melt the butter and mix in the egg and milk
- Combine baking powder and flour in a separate bowl
- Add the dry ingredients to the liquid ones, until the batter is slightly thick
- Melt butter on the waffle iron and close it so it spreads
- Pour the batter on the hot iron, and turn (if it’s an old fashioned waffle iron)
- Mix the creme to taste
I’m currently spending some time at my best friends place, and she is an incredible cook. So when we bought some ‘Stone Age’ bread’ mix, she instantly said she could give me a better recipe than the premix. And then she did!
Stone Age bread is a made entirely up of seeds, nuts, eggs and oil. This combination makes it both gluten free and lactose free – as well as full of proteins, fibers and healthy oils (from the seeds and nuts). Another thing I love about it is how filling it is! Now lets get to the recipe and process.
Creating the recipe
Another great aspect of Stone Age bread is that you can customize it according to your own liking, and availability of different ingredients. The base ingredients remains the same – eggs, oil and salt – but the rest can be mixed however you want. Only rule is that the flexible ingredients needs to make up 600 grams all in all.
So just to make it completely clear – you create the recipe by choosing your flexible ingredients, as well as optional ingredients – while the base ingredients remains the same. The ingredients are:
- 5 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 dl oil (canola, sunflower, coconut, olive or other)
1. Seeds: 350-400 grams
- Sesame seeds
- Flax seeds
- Chia seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sunflower seeds
2. Nuts: 150-200 grams
- Pecan nuts
- Cashew nuts
- Macadamia nuts
Optional ingredients (added by eye measure):
- Dried berries (cranberries, goji berries, dates etc)
- Spices (salt, chilly flakes, garlic etc.)
- Herbs (thyme, rosemary etc.)
How to make it
- Measure out your seeds and nuts and collect it in a bowl
- Add the egg, salt and oil and mix thoroughly
- Add any other optional ingredients and mix
- Fill the batter into a greased bread form
- Bake in preheated oven at 160 degrees for 1 hour
- Take the bread out of the form when it has cooled down
The bread will last for a week in the fridge. You can also cut it out and freeze it, and then toast the individual pieces before serving. Its delicious with cheese and different speeds. I had it this morning with some danish blue cheese and avocado. Yum!
That was it for now. Feel free to leave a comment –
The other day I found an old fashioned waffle iron in a second hand shop, and absolutely just had to have it! One thing I love about Denmark is the well organized, high quality but still cheap, second hand shops to be found in almost any town.
I’ve never really taken any sides in the ‘is gluten bad for you’ conversation, but I do acknowledge that a lot of gluten products are high in fast carbohydrates and starch – which can be unhealthy if eaten in excess. For that reason I’m always experimenting with gluten alternatives in my baking and cooking, and of course I wanted to try this out with my waffles as well. I also made them dairy free, since a family member is intolerant, but they will turn out just as great with milk. In case you don’t have a waffle iron, this can be made as pancakes as well. I made them with some creme fraise mixed with honey and vanilla powder, topped with blue berries.
Ingredients (4 waffles):
- 4 dl oats
- 4 eggs
- 4 dl rice milk, almond milk, soya milk or regular milk
- 1 banana (optional)
- 1 tsp vanilla powder (optional)
How to make it:
- Mix all the ingredients in a mixer or blender and blend till smooth
- Heat the waffle iron or pan on the stove
- Grease the iron with butter and let melt
- Make your waffles, greasing the waffle iron according to need (if using an old waffle iron you will need to turn it manually)
Since the waffles look like little hearts, they could make a pretty cute birthday breakfast or just as a Sunday surprise for a loved one. They can also be served with ice cream or whipped cream to make it more of a dessert, or even be made into food waffles – with some spices and herbs, but thats a project for next time.
Here’s the final result – and with that, I will end this post. Feel free to leave a comment or question below.
