This is no Belgian waffle. It is not crisp and high. Our local cake shop waffle is a bit flat, soft, a bit chewy and full of wonderful coconut flavor. It comes with an option of plain, peanut butter spread, melted cheese, chocolate spread and blueberry spread. Some offer more options. Usually I’ll just have the plain one as I love the coconut flavor and don’t want anything to mask it.
This is my version. Warning: not a low fat food.
Coconut Waffles (makes about 4)
125g plain flour
50 g sugar
1 tsp yeast
pinch of salt
200 ml coconut milk
3 Tbsp virgin coconut oil
Mix them together and leave in a warm place to proof for about 30-45 min. Cook in a waffle maker.
Enjoy it with butter or honey. But seriously, it doesn’t need any of those.
