Waffles

dsc_0990

Some dishes you love because they are nutritious and others because they are comfort food. But my primary reason to start liking a waffle was that it looks so pretty. Such cute little squares inside a slightly larger one and can be doused in honey or smeared with any preserve of your choice. Sigh!!!

It was one of my first picks in a buffet breakfast and i fell in love with it more when the daughter ate it without a fuss. Who would throw a tantrum against waffles? But I was resigned to eating it only when I travel because I couldn’t justify, even to my most impulsive side, that buying a waffle iron made sense for the twice a month waffle affair. Yes, the frequency would be low because the husband doesn’t like it. Like that surprises anyone anymore! So the sighing continued until one fine day, I discovered a small silicon waffle mould on Amazon and life began to look up again. The only flip side is that the waffle grooves appear only on the lower side but the upper side is plain. This has no impact on the taste and is a perfect middle ground between having no waffles at all and buying a waffle iron. Now the daughter and I enjoy baked waffles every now and then thanks to this very easy recipe. Do try this –
