Here are our Valentine’s day pink waffles. I have been perfecting my waffles over the past few weeks. We have had a favourite go-to pancake recipe for a few years now and so I was on a mission to do the same with our waffle recipe
At Christmas I decided to stick with it until I could perfect my waffle game. I have tweaked it and I’m now happy with the results. I thought I would share our recipe and go a step further by adding some pink food colouring which makes them look perfect for Valentine’s day. I’m sure we can all agree that we need some happy pink waffles this year whilst in lockdown in our homes.
This recipe works so well in our waffle maker. It’s a light and airy mix without putting tons of baking powder in. I really dislike recipes with lots of raising agents in as it leaves me with an aftertaste.
This recipe doesn’t stick to our waffle maker. By putting melted butter in the mixture and then using spray oil on the irons it means they easily lift off the machine.
The added pink food gel colouring doesn’t affect the taste and makes the waffles look even better!
These pretty pink waffles deserve to be served with cream and strawberries or a dollop of yoghurt and red fruits.
Do whisk up the egg whites as it makes all the difference to the waffle consistency.
Fold the egg whites into the beaten mixture with a metal spoon or spatula as they can retain their air through the mixture rather than beat them with whisk into the waffle mixture.
If you haven’t got spray oil simply brush melted butter onto the waffle maker.
If you want them to stay pink instead of brown then only cook them for one minute.
This recipe makes 5 whole waffles and none of us can eat a whole waffle so we have pitched it at serving around 10 people. This will obviously vary on how big your waffle appetite is!
We hope that you enjoy these Valentine’s Day pink waffles and do let us know if you make them.
