Thomas Keller, one of the world’s best chefs, came on my show a while ago and cooked waffles with chicken. I hadn’t realized how easy they were to make before then, and I’ve been cooking them ever since. It’s best to use American streaky bacon and good-quality maple syrup, which is graded like fine wine: the better the grade, the better the flavour. They can easily be cooked in ten minutes in a waffle maker, and the same batter can be used for both sweet and savoury waffles if you want to serve fruit, chocolate sauce or ice cream with them.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon caster sugar
3 eggs
425ml milk
100g butter, melted
vegetable oil, for greasing
streaky bacon rashers, to serve
maple syrup, to serve

Method

  1. Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, eggs, milk and butter together in a bowl to make a smooth batter with no lumps.
  2. Oil a waffle maker, pour in the batter and cook for 3–4 minutes. Remove and keep warm. Repeat to make more waffles.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat, add the bacon and cook until crispy. Remove and keep warm.
  4. Serve the waffles hot with the bacon and maple syrup.
