Black Forest Waffles…


We use a waffle maker to make our waffles, if you over fill them they make a horrible mess so I cook mine in batches and use small spoonfuls in each cavity. However you can also use a silicon waffle mould which is a lot cheaper and cook them in the oven, but the texture and overall outcome are different to being done in a machine and they taste much naughtier.

One little tip if using a machine, do NOT use frylight on the plates, dab a little oil on a piece of tissue and rub it over the plates before preheating, this keeps the plates clean and prevents them from being ruined by the frylight and makes it easier to clean.

Black Forest Waffles


  • 45g oatbran – HexB or 7.5 syns
  • Β½ tablespoon sweetener
  • ΒΌ teaspoon baking powder**
  • 1 egg
  • 2 heaped tablespoons fat free natural greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoon cocoa powder – 1 syn (Check your own brands as syns vary)
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa extract
  • Quark, sweetened with sweetener and a few drops of cherry flavouring
  • Frozen black forest fruits, defrosted
  1. Preheat your waffle machine (or follow any instructions your machine provides).
  2. Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and give a quick mix.
  3. In another bowl whisk the egg and vanilla until pale and fluffy, add the yogurt and whisk trying not to knock too much air out.
  4. Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients until well combined.
  5. Leave to soak for a few minutes.
  6. Once the waffle machine is heated add a few spoonfuls of the mixture into the machine and cook for 5-6 minutes (you may need to experiment here or follow instructions from your machine as they will all vary).
  7. Keep cooking your batter in batches being sure not to over fill to prevent leaking out the sides and wasted mixture.
  8. Serve with the quark and berries.
