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.
Some recommended items from our kitchen to make our waffles…
- Either a waffle maker or a silicon waffle mould.
- Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
- Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
- Mixing bowls are always wanted in this household and these stackable ones save so much space in our cupboards.
- A little gadget that so many ppl over look but is worth getting to prevent strawberry wastage is these nifty little hullers, I also use it for taking out the core of a tomato too.
- A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.

Strawberries & Cream Waffles
- 45g oatbran – HexB or 7.5 syns
- ½ tablespoon sweetener
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder**
- 1 egg
- 2 heaped tablespoons fat free natural greek yogurt
- A couple of drops of strawberry flavouring
- 2 tablespoon freeze dried strawberries – 0.5 syn
- Quark, sweetened with sweetener
- Fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
- Strawberry sauce to drizzle – syn accordingly
- Preheat your waffle machine (or follow any instructions your machine provides).
- Add the dry ingredients to a bowl, don’t forget the dried strawberries in this step and give a quick mix.
- In a cup whisk the egg and flavouring until pale and fluffy, add the yogurt and whisk trying not to knock too much air out.
- Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients until well combined.
- Leave to soak for a few minutes.
- 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).
- Keep cooking your batter in batches being sure not to over fill to prevent leaking out the sides and wasted mixture.
- Serve with the quark and fresh strawberries and drizzle over the sauce if using.
