Years ago I had a waffle iron that I used every few months, and to be honest, I pretty much hated it. It was awkward to store, hard to clean and invariably made a mess every time I used it.
I would either put in too much batter and end up with spills all over the counter or put in too little and get waffles that were misshapen and unattractive. When the waffle iron eventually broke, I certainly wasn’t heartbroken.
So when Breville came out with a revolutionary mess-free waffle iron, I was hesitant, but intrigued. Could it really be possible to enjoy delicious, crispy waffles without a big hassle and a mess to clean up?
When Breville gave me the chance to see for myself how well its new the No-Mess Waffle worked, I couldn’t wait to put it to the test.
Because the Breville the No-Mess Waffle is designed to be quick and easy to use, I wanted to make a Breville waffle recipe that was equally quick and easy.
And this recipe for the best ever Classic Waffles is exactly that. The batter can be whipped up in a blender or food processor in just minutes and keeps in the fridge for up to a week! Just whisk it up before use and you can have fresh waffles any time!
The innovative moat on the Breville the No-Mess Waffle is what makes it so perfect for a busy mom that doesn’t want to deal with spills. Any excess batter drips into the moat and cooks along with the waffle. My boys actually loved eating the cooked strips of batter from the moat almost as much as they enjoyed the waffles themselves!
Being able to pour in a proper amount of batter without worrying about spills also meant that I could create beautiful, restaurant-worthy waffles perfect for a special weekend breakfast or a meal with guests.
I topped our waffles with strawberries and real whipped cream for a strawberry shortcake-style waffle that was packed with flavour!
Mother’s Day is just a few days away and if your mom loves to cook, this is one gift that’s sure to put a smile on her face. Its innovative design and perfect results will make it a favourite kitchen appliance for years to come!
