I'd been craving Earl Grey goodies for a couple of weeks, and I figured it would totally work as a waffle concept. I'm not going to lie: this recipe was a success! I'm very happy with the subtle tea flavor of the waffle, which could even be enhanced by adding ground leaves in the batter. I didn't have any on hand, but maple syrup would totally kill on top of those babies!
So easy, few ingredients, very quick and absolutely divine with a freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and orange slices.
Oh, and if you don't have a waffle-maker, just make pancakes! ;)
INGREDIENTS (yields 6 waffles):
- 1 1/2 cups AP flour
- 1/2 cup corn starch
- 3 tbsp granulated sugar
- a pinch of salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup brewed Earl Grey (very concentrated)
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 2 eggs, separated
- put all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and add all the wet ingredients (except the egg whites) progressively until blended smooth
- gently fold in the whipped egg whites until just combined
- ladle in a waffle-maker or if you don't have one, cook like pancakes
- seve freshly cooked, hot with a little square of butter and a light sprinkle of confectionner sugar
