We generally do as little as possible on a Sunday – usually recovering from a packed weekend and trying to get in some rest for the coming week. So yesterday, after a lovely afternoon nap, we decided to get comfy on the couch and watch a film, About Time. The movie is the brainchild of the creators of Notting Hill and Love Actually and is absolutely brilliant; one of those films that is packed with life lessons and promises a tear or two.
Just when a twist was about to be unveiled, hubby paused and stated than he was peckish for something sweet. Within a few minutes we were whisking some sugar, flour and eggs and got the waffle machine going. Luckily I had made cream caramel ice cream the week before, so a delicious dessert was served for dinner. Oh how I love Sundays!
For the waffles
125 ml sugar
250 ml milk
30 ml oil
500 ml flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
- Beat the eggs and the sugar and add half of the milk with the oil.
- Sift the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well with the egg mixture.
- Add the other half of the milk.
- Pour large spoonfuls of dough into your waffle pan and bake until some steam escapes from the machine – it takes around 3 minutes. Your waffles should now be done.
For the cream caramel ice cream
500 ml cream
1 tin dulce de leche (caramel treat)
100 ml milk
10 blocks of Wilson’s Cream Caramel, cut into small pieces
- Whisk the cream, dulce de leche, and milk together.
- Chill for 12 hours.
- Churn your ice cream according to your machine’s specifications while adding the cream caramel.
