Belgian Waffles

My eldest son loves waffles for as long as I remembered. Therefore, when ToTT had their waffle maker on sale, I convinced my hubby to go down and get the maker. Of course, the happiest person will be my son. That will mean he can have waffles anytime he likes it, without having to pay a pricey $10 for one with ice-cream in a cafe!
I must admit, the first experience of making the waffles wasn't very nice. I didn't brush the mould with oil as the salesperson advised not to. Gee, I spend about 20 minutes trying to get the batter off the mould. So, once bitten twice shy. I've learnt to be smarter. Hahaha... I begining brushing the mould with some oil, and the waffles turned out to be fantastic!

I adapted the recipe from Allrecipes, and modified it. The waffles was really crispy and was truly very fragrant even on its own! My son just couldn't get enough of it, and bugged me to make it everyday for him! I had to ration the waffles so that he won't over-eat them! If you have a waffle maker, I highly recommend you try this recipe, it's really one of the best I'd had! Even my sisters agreed that it was really very nice, despite the fact that I made it the day before, freeze them and re-toast them!

How long the mixture can last for? Can I keep for few days?

Hi Anonymous,
I think the mixture should be able to keep in the fridge for a few days, not exceeding a week.
