Breakfast: Simple Waffles

I grew up in South Africa and one of my favourite childhood memories is going to a dessert place called Milky Lane, which sold a whole range of waffles, ice-cream, milkshakes and so many flavours of sauce I can’t even name them all.

All I can say is that in comparison, places in the U.K. that sell waffles don’t really compare. I went to one place, were the waffle were store bought and just warmed up and sold – I couldn’t eat them because of my dairy thing, but the very fact they weren’t made fresh disgusted me.

So we’ve always just made waffles at home – and while I have a full-fat all goodness waffle recipe I did create a healthier waffle recipe for those of us who want to indulge and still want to keep the calories low – or in case you want to go extra on your toppings.

This recipe serves one, so obviously multiply by however many people you’re cooking for.


  • 40g Plain flour
  • 1tsp Baking powder
  • 1Tbsp Sweetener
  • 1tsp Vanilla extract (or caramel flavouring)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 Cup of Alpro Unsweetened Soya Milk (or any milk you prefer)


Step One: Pre-heat waffle iron, and lightly grease with frylight.

Step Two: You can use an all in one method with this recipe, so it’s super easy. So just put everything in a bowl and whisk.

I prefer to use and electric hand whisk, but you can do it by hand and don’t worry about lumps.

Step Three: Once the waffle iron is heated, pour in batter and cook for about two to four minutes, until cooked through.

Step Four: Serve with your choice of toppings.


Naturally you can use normal milk.

These can be served for breakfast or as a dessert.
