Sunday Waffles

Since we got married, about four years ago, we have a waffle machine, that also works as a grill. We have used the grill several times, but we have never made waffles. Maybe it was because all the waffles we had eaten were those not sweet or salty, and kind of rubberish too. So, Saturday night and I found out there was no bread in the house. I was wandering about what I could do when it came to me that I could make some waffles. Checked the ingredients.. OK! Kids liked the idea.. OK! And, now I know, a homemade waffle cannot be compared to those cold stuff we used to eat in the lousy restaurants around here> I'll post the two recipes I made this morning!

Chocolate Waffles
from here


1 1/2 cup flour
1 egg (I used 2 small eggs)
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tbsp softened butter
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp sugar


Blend all the ingredients and put 1/2 mixture in your waffle machine.

Cheese Waffle
from here


1 egg
1 cup manioc starch (polvilho doce, in portuguese)
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup muzzarela cheese


Blend all the ingredients and put 1/2 mixture in your waffle machine.

I served the chocolate waffle with banana, honey and oatmeal and the cheese waffle with cream cheese and scallions. In the recipes available on the Internet, it says you can make these on a frying pan as well.. And I really believe you can!

PS: Please vote on my recipe!! It is already available on Trem Bom. It is recipe n. 7, if you can just post your vote I'd really appreciate!!! Don't forget!!!!!
