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.
