Penguin Waffle with Ice Cream


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.

This recipe came with the waffle maker...

Ingredients:

  • 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
How to do it:

  1. Pre-heat waffle maker.
  2. In a large bowl combine the sifted flour, egg yolk, milk, water and butter.
  3. Using an electric mixer; mix until smooth.
  4. 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.
  5. Fold the egg white mixture into the mixture.
  6. 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.
  7. Close lid and cook for 3 minutes.
  8. Remove waffles with a plastic spatula onto a cooling rack.
  9. Allow waffles to cool slightly before giving to children.
Note:
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.

    I bought it from 10 Mile Junction branch. No sure if it's still available. That was the last time I went there. Maybe you would like to call them to check? The brand is Morries. Good luck with the sourcing! :)

  10. HI, You are a livesaver!!!! I had a big request for these waffles and I could not find my booklet. I love your recipe and I used the extra milk....My Woodles is by Sunbeam in Australia and if the original recipe is from them....in Australia is 20mls unlike the rest of the worlds 15ml....which could eplain the extra sugar you suggest. Thanks again...Cheryl
