How To Make Fluffy Gin And Tonic Waffles
Okay, so every year, especially when visiting family and friends, I love to make my (not so) famous indulgent fluffy gin and tonic waffles. Yes, you read that right… gin and tonic waffles. Somehow it has become my signature dish that I tend to rock out at most dinner parties, breakfast/brunch or special occasion. I have to admit that it’s most definitely gluttonous and certainly a treat that I
don’t really enjoy sharing 😉
As it’s that time of year when everyone gets together, I wanted to share my recipe that is IMHO a perfect addition to any get together – especially if you want to try something a little different.
Very easy and unbelievably quick! Fluffy griddle waffles are really easy to make and you shouldn’t spend longer that 12 minutes making a plate full! Yum! Preparation time should literally take no more than 5 minutes too! The hardest part will be waiting 20 minutes for your dough to rise. 🙂
I’ve started using some Irish, Shortcross Gin, that I discovered on our amazing trip to Dublin – it has a very clean and crisp flavour which goes perfectly with my recipe.
1 x small packet of active yeast (about 8-10grams) or 1/4 ounce.
3 x small tea cups of whole or semi-skimmed milk
1 x generous tea spoon of brown sugar
4 x small cups of sieved plain flour
4 x Eggs
1/2 x cup of melted (salted) butter
1 x teaspoon of Vanilla extract
1/2 x teaspoon of cinnamon
1 x pinch of nutmeg
2 x shot glasses of gin
1/5 x cup of tonic
1/2 x lemon
Once the mixture has risen, you are ready to griddle your waffles
Finish off with some fresh berries, syrup, cream or even a delicious gin and tonic!
