How do you know when these Strawberry and Vanilla Waffles are cooked?

You should cook these waffles until they are crisp on the outside. They should be cooked through but still soft in the centre.

How do I reheat Strawberry and Vanilla Waffles?

Place the waffles on a baking tray and cook in an oven set to 170ºC for 10-15 minutes until hot – just keep an eye on them to ensure they don’t burn.

You could reheat these in the microwave for 5-6 minutes until piping hot. They probably won’t be as crispy this way.

I only used one egg but they turned out really soggy in the middle too 🙁 I will try again one day.

Have just bought a waffle maker and tried these, it overflowed and was a mess plus separated in middle. Where did I go wrong?

Made these this morning, I mixed a tiny bit of sugar and cinammon together and put over the top of them with strawberries on the side. They were lovely 🙂

These are just so good! I don’t have a waffle maker but borrowed a pancake maker instead. The recepie made 4 saucer-ish sized pancakes – my son snaffled 2 – but the 2 I managed to retain ownership of were fab! I will definitely be making these again.

Hi there do I have to but this sweetener I can I use any thank you

    KateTuesday 9th May 2017

    Hi Lisa
    Yes you can use other sweeteners, but bear in mind Sukrin is the same weight, sweetness and consistency as normal sugar so you use it like for like, unlike other sweeteners which are lighter and sweeter. This means you probably wouldn’t need as much normal sweetener. You can usually find conversion information on the website of the brand of sweetener you are using

Hi. I cooked these last week but the middle was quite soggy and had a strange texture. Is this what happens or should I have put them in for longer?

Hello, a lot of your recipes use a food processor which I don’t have. Are you able to blend the oats the make them finer?

Jaime HallTuesday 28th March 2017

Hi, has anyone used a waffle maker for this? I have one and it makes them very soggy. If anyone has used the maker any tips? Thanks.

Reply

    KateFriday 31st March 2017

    Hi Jaime
    We’ve not tried, but we know others have. Cooking in a waffle mould would probably dry them out a bit more than a waffle maker so you may need to reduce the liquid, egg and/or yogurt so it binds together a bit better.

DiMonday 27th March 2017

Ola!

Has anyone successfully ‘waffled’ these in a waffle maker?
If yes, could I ask what times you used?
I’m going to have a try later, so come what may, will try and post times on here

Hi I made these as per the recipe however they turned out soggy in the middle why is that ? I cooked for 25 mins then turned out and cooked for another 10 mins
Thanks in advance

    KateThursday 23rd March 2017

    Hi Lisa
    The consistency of waffles and baked oats can be a bit of a personal preference really, so if you find them a bit soggy you could try using 1 egg instead of 2.

Could we use tablet sweetener freely as well for a sweeter taste ?

For 4 people, do you really use 8 eggs and 700g of yogurt? that seems a lot!

Could you freeze these and toast them later?

    KateFriday 27th January 2017

    Hi Jane
    We’ve never tried, but I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to batch cook them, freeze them and then just toast/reheat them when you want. let us know how you get on if you try 🙂

    LizTuesday 12th September 2017

    I freeze them as I make up a.big batch, then just take them out when required. Pop in toaster, or a dry frying pan, they’re lovely

hi how can i blitz the oats if i dont have a food processor,

Reply

    KateTuesday 3rd January 2017

    Hi Brenda, you could try a stick blender, but you could also do it without blitzing the oats, the texture won’t be as smooth but they will still turn out fine 🙂

NikkiSaturday 22nd October 2016

You need to amend the oats to 40g now

Just wondering if it fills all 5 sections of the mould using the recipe or should I double it? I want to make enough for me, my husband and son.

PaulaSunday 9th October 2016

Would these work as well in a waffle machine? Mine cooks waffles in five minutes and I see these take 15.

Just had these for my breakfast absolutely delicious. Didnt have vanilla flavoiring so used salted caramel instead. I was worried that they wouldnt come out of the mould ok but they looked amazing. Will definitely be making them again.

Hiya, really glad you found out about the blitzed oats as I found a recipe for mug cake with them and hadn’t had a chance to ring. Looking forward to trying the waffles and have ordered the mould. Thank you x
