While surfing the net, I found this cute waffle maker called Woddles. The end product is not the boring normal square or circle waffles but in the shape of a ... Penguin!!
I went hunting for it and all the sales person I approached gave me the blur look. Then I gave up looking for it. That was 6 months ago.
Guess what my husband showed me when we went to Sheng Siong Supermarket on Sunday? Yeah! It's the Penguin Waffle Marker!!! It's a copycat of the original but who cares as long as it still gives me the same end results. I was hopping like a little girl and my husband had to buy it for me. *giggle*
Yeah, things just show up when you least expect it.
* the hungry Penguim *
This recipe came with the waffle maker...
- 1 cup self raising flour
- 1 egg, separated
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 45g butter, melted
- 1 1/2 tablespoons caster sugar
- Pre-heat waffle maker.
- In a large bowl combine the sifted flour, egg yolk, milk, water and butter.
- Using an electric mixer; mix until smooth.
- Using clean beaters; beat egg white in a small bowl until soft peaks form then gradually add the sugar and beat until the sugar is dissolved.
- Fold the egg white mixture into the mixture.
- Spoon 2 rounded tablespoons of mixture into each penguin waffle mould; using a plastic spatula push the mixture into the hands and feet of the moulds.
- Close lid and cook for 3 minutes.
- Remove waffles with a plastic spatula onto a cooling rack.
- Allow waffles to cool slightly before giving to children.
Obviously, I fed a scoop of ice cream to the penguin and I have also added an additional tablespoon of sugar and increase the milk to 1/2 cup to the original batter.
