Belgian Waffle Maker

*blow cobwebs again*

Oh dear, collecting cobwebs here again. I've been sucked in and nearly drowned in work for the past few months. When I took on my new job few months back, I knew it was going to be a stretch, but I guess I underestimated how MUCH of a stretch it will be!  Kinda reminds me of that Coldplay song sometimes "Nobody said it was easy, no one ever it would be this hard"!!!

Constant struggle but I'm learning and doing things I've never done before. I'm a believer of "what doesn't break you makes you stronger".  I've definitely grown stronger in the past 7 months and will need to be even stronger in the coming ones.

Despite the busy-ness, I still managed to add on to my ever growing list of kitchen appliances.  Latest addition is my waffle maker.  hehe.  Got it for less than RM 40 from Lazada  ;-)  


Elyssa having the maiden waffle.  Sprinkled with icing sugar and topped with apple slices. 
Used recipe that came with the waffle maker.  Really good but a bit troublesome since need to separately beat the egg whites to meringue first. 

Tried another recipe the following day.  This one is a keeper!!

Much easier.  But need to prepare in advance to let the yeast work its magic.
Love the result tho - Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.  Perfect!


Used my latest toy 3 times so far.  Better not abandon it in case hubby complains about all my kitchen toys again  ;-)
