Waffles, Waffles, Waffles

(Please scroll down for English)

สวัสดีค่ะ
นิดาเชื่อว่าหลายๆคนคุ้นเคยกับการทำ waffle กับ pancake จากแป้งสำเร็จรูป ทำให้ไม่ทราบถึงความแตกต่างของ batter 2 ชนิด

จริงๆแป้งwaffle แบบ traditional นั้นต้องทำมาจากไข่ขาวที่ตีจนขึ้นฟู เพราะจะให้แป้งที่เบากรอบค่ะ
นอกจากนั้นแป้ง waffle ก็มีไขมันมากกว่าด้วย ทำให้ถ้าใครชอบทาน waffle แบบนิ่มๆ ก็สามารถแปลงเอาสูตร pancake โปรดมาเป็น waffle ได้โดยการเติมเนยละลาย 1 ชต ต่อแป้ง 1 ถ้วย แล้วถ้าอยากให้อร่อยจริงๆก็แยกไข่ขาวมาตีให้ขึ้นฟูเป็นยอดแข็งก่อนตะล่อมใส่ส่วนผสมตอนจะเข้าเครื่องทำ waffle ค่ะ

นิดามีสูตร waffle แบบ basic ที่ชอบอยู่ 2 สูตรค่ะ

Hi there,
I believe that since we are
so uses to using pancake and waffle mixes, we do not know their fundamental differences.
The reason why pancakes are soft and fluffy while waffles are crispy is because waffles contain a higher fat content.
Also, traditionally, waffles are made using whipped stiffen egg whites to give it airy crispness.

If you have a favorite pancake batter that you would like to convert into a waffle (soft kind,) simply add 1 tbsp of melted butter per 1 cup of flour that the batter calls for. And if you want to go the extra mile, separate the eggs, whip the whites to stiff peak and fold it into the batter right before using it.

Here are two of my favorite waffle recipes:

But I think the fun of waffle-making comes from customizing your own version, you can start of by gathering some ideas from these recipes:
