Dear fellow foodie, do you ever look at your waffle pan and ask your self why is it collecting all that dust as it sits pretty on your cupoboard waiting for the next time you will remember to make actual waffles,yet you could put it into good use without making a whole mess inthe kitchen through making waffles..i thought about this several times and hence my call to make this recipe.Every Sunday i try to make unique things for my family as its the only day that i have free time on my hands to create fancy meals for them, its actually the day i bring out my chefing mojo out .I was going for a regular french toasted bread because its been a while ever since i made those and then i thought of how great that would be if i made a bread waffle instead. With very simple ingredients available on my pantry and i believe yours too, i whipped up a simple thin batter that i coated the bread with so that i could use it on the waffle machine. The results were priceless, the waffle pattern also made it interesting for the children to enjoy the bread, because my eldest is a picky bread eater, so this was just a way to lure him into eating bread, so geer up and lets make some bread waffle and i guarantee you will love it like i did.
6 slices of bread (white or brown)
1/2 cup milk
2 table spoons self raising flour
1 tablespoon oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp raisins (optional)
1 tablespoon sugar
Mix all the ingredients in abowl using a whisk, whip to make a light batter.
Next soak in your bread inside the batter,
Prepare your waffle pan by spraying it with oil, or baking spray, then once preheated, gently place the soaked bread, i did about 3 minutes on each side until the batter is well cooked, be careful to watch out for burning.
To serve you can sprinkle icing sugar, pour some waffle sauce or waffle syrup. Add a dolop of home made jam, lemon curd.
Ideal for breakfast or brunch or snack on its own. You can add grated cheese on the batter if you like. Brown bread can work too.
