I wonder whether the Belgian had ever thought of using sweet potatoes in their waffles! LOL
Sweet potatoes are actually a very adaptable ingredient and it provides plenty of natural sweetness and beneficial nutrients!
So here we go with waffles with a twist!
Sweet Potato waffles
INGREDIENTS:S: (For 3~4 people)
Sweet potatoes: 700 g
Water: 200 cc (1 cup)
Sugar: 80 g
batter: 40 g
Milk of fresh cream: 50 cc (1/4 cup)
Dry raisins: 2 tablespoons
Oat meal: 3 tablespoons
Slice the sweet potatoes.
Put them inside a large pan.
Cover with water.
Put a lid on.
Heat the water. When it starts boiling reduce fire to low and cook.
Once the sweet potatoes have become soft enough, take out of pan.
Mash them with a spatula.
If you like your sweet potatoes with a fine grain sieve them.
Add butter, raisins, oat meal and sugar. Mix well.
Add the egg yolks and mix well.
Add the milk or fresh cream little by little and mix well every time.
Separate mashed sweet potatoes mixture into a number of balls, each of a size big enough to make one waffle.
Brush butter (not included in the recipe ingredients) onto the inside surface of the waffle maker.
Put one ball on the waffle maker and top it with a portion of butter.
Close the waffle maker gently and cook.
Once cooked, bear in mind that it is comparatively soft. Take care when taking it out.
Eat with a fork or spoon!
The kids will love them!
