Single Serve Sandwich Iron Waffles

Could anything be more magical? This is my own severely bastardised version of Liege waffles with several factors that make it my favourite recipe ever. 1. It requires only a bowl, a whisk - or you can forego that and simply use a spoon! 2. As it's a single serving recipe, the quantity of ingredients are minimal. 3. Versatile and Adaptable. 4. In tandem with 2. but it takes under $3 (and that's overestimating) to prepare that is a whole lot better than a frozen one that they toast at cafes and charge $15. 5. You most likely already have the ingredients in your pantry. 6. Minimum effort for maximum reward. Have I caught your attention yet? These are light and fluffy and slightly crispy, and as I said, immensely adaptable. In the above picture, I served it with nutella and ice cream. The waffle is your delicious oyster! Some other suggestions are a drizzling of peanut butter, slices of fruit like strawberries and bananas, a drizzling of honey with a side of whipped cream like honey bread, or you could swirl chocolate chips into the batter or half a mashed banana and cinnamon to make banana bread waffles oh! oh! and carrot cake! and apple pie! or making stuffed waffles by placing slices of bananas and nutella before enveloping it in batter and toasting it and .. and.. excuse me, I need to go restore the last vestiges of my self control. 

Sandwich Iron Waffles

20g Butter
Several Drops of Vanilla 
Pinch of Salt 
1 egg 
1-2 Tablespoons of Greek Yoghurt
3-4 Tablespoons of Self-raising Flour (or All Purpose Flour with 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder)
 **Note that I didn't stipulate sugar. I figure that since most like their waffles garnished with sugary wonders - a dentist's nightmare, why would you need the waffle to be sweet as well? But if you prefer to eat it plain I would recommend a few tablespoons of sugar. 

Lightly grease and heat up your sandwich iron.

Melt butter in a microwave. Stir in several drops of vanilla and pinch of salt. 

Cool slightly before whisking in egg and greek yoghurt.

Mix in flour until it is more a thick consistency rather than a liquid. 

Spoon batter as shown.

Cook for 2-4 mins depending on your iron. 

Serve however you like your waffles!
