  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk together the eggs, milk and melted butter in a large jug. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and whisk in the egg mixture until combined.
  2. Grease a griddle pan (about 20cm square) with butter and put over a medium heat. When the butter starts to foam, pour in half the batter to cover the base of the pan. Cook for 5 mins or until light golden in colour, you should be able to lift the waffle gently with a spatula and see clear griddle lines showing on the underside.
  3. Carefully flip the waffle over (the easiest way to do this is to slide the waffle out onto a large, flat tray or plate, place the pan over the top and invert it to flip the waffle back into the pan with the cooked side on top) and cook for another 5 mins on the other side. Transfer to a warmed plate and keep warm while repeating with the remaining batter.
  4. Cut each waffle into 4 and serve 2 per person with your choice of toppings (see suggestions below).

Serving suggestions: For sweet waffles, try drizzling with a little honey, maple syrup, jam or nut butter, sprinkling with cinnamon sugar, or serving with a dollop of yogurt and fresh fruit or compote. You could also try adding a little crunch with some chopped nuts, toasted seeds or some of your favourite granola.

For a savoury dish, you could try topping with avocado slices, fried or poached eggs, crispy bacon or smoked salmon.

You could even try turning these waffles into a hearty main and serving American-style with fried chicken and maple syrup or serving them as an indulgent pud with a scoop of ice cream, caramelised bananas and lashings of chocolate sauce.

Tip: For an easy breakfast, you can make the waffles ahead and store in an airtight container overnight. Transfer to a baking tray or dish and cover loosely with foil. Warm through at gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C for 15 mins before serving.
