German Waffles are awesome for breakfast, brunch or for coffee and cake in the afternoon, or the “Kaffeeklatsch” (that means the usual gossip while sipping a cup of coffee with a piece of cake). In Germany you can get them on every fair, and we eat them with powdered sugar, jam, fruit or Nutella.
Ingredients (for about 10 waffles)
250 g flour
125 g sugar
1 sachet vanilla sugar
250 ml milk
1 sachet baking powder
125 g butter (soft)
hint of rum, vanilla or lemon
- Beat the eggs a little bit, then add the butter until the batter is foamy.
- Add sugar and vanilla sugar and some vanilla or (real) rum.
- Add the flour and baking powder, the dough will be a bit sticky, so add the milk until it is smooth.
Waffles taste great with some cinnamon. Serve them warm and right from the waffle maker (they get soft if you keep them warm in the oven). In Germany we eat them with mashed apples, jam, compotes, Nutella, fresh fruit or firm cream. There are many variations, find the one you like best.
