In the city near to where I grew up, there is a small restaurant a Waffle restaurant and one of my top tips is if you are ever in Norwich you must go and visit The Waffle House and try one of their savoury waffles. My favourite from the menu is the Greek Waffle, having spent time living in Greece anything that is inspired by the flavours and tastes of that country is always a hit with me so when I was asked to try the Sage No Mess Waffle Maker and create a recipe for National Waffle Day on the 25th March there was only one option a recipe for homemade waffle in your waffle maker inspired by Greece and the traditional Greek Salad.

One of the things that has put me off making waffles at home is that like pancakes and crepes they are really messy to make but with a No Mess Waffle Maker from the same range as our bread maker which I love it would be a good to give it ago. The Sage No Mess Waffle Maker is around the same size as my large frying pan so not too big and will fit in one of the smaller cupboards in our house without a problem – so a bonus as no clutter on the work tops. It is easy to use and with a beep and lights to show you when it is ready you will have no problem letting the kids know when their food has arrived.

Before creating my own recipe I decided to try out one of the recipes provided in the instruction booklet – a basic waffle recipe – it’s easy to make and I had all of the ingredients as standard in my kitchen, however it does make 8 waffles and these are good size waffles so when I’ve made them again (and they have been requested a lot) I’ve halved the recipe and even quartered it to make it doable for a light lunch and as a dessert instead of as a main meal.

My biggest tip is to reduce the amount of batter you use – I don’t know whether I’m just exceptionally good at making up the batter or whether it’s because there was too much but I found instead of 125ml as suggested in the booklet 75ml of batter was much better to use!
