Cheesy Chipotle Waffle recipe with hibiscus salt
I prefer savoury waffles to sweet, and this recipe has a light batter at the same time while being a richly flavoured comfort food. The hibiscus salt adds another Mexican note to this recipe. I used a Cuisinart waffle maker rather than my old cast iron waffle iron; this makes this recipe the work a matter of mere minutes. I'm going to experiment with some other savoury waffle ideas...
250g plain flour
1 tbsp caster sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
425ml full fat milk
115g salted butter, melted
3 eggs, lightly beaten
150g mature cheddar cheese, grated
1 tsp lime chipotle paste
1 tsp hibiscus salt, recipe here
Put the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and mix.
Add the milk, butter and eggs and stir until blended.
Leave the batter to rest for 15 minutes.
Add the grated cheese and chipotle paste.
Preheat the waffle iron.
Once ready, add 4 tbsps of batter to each waffle section. Don't put too much in.
Close the waffle lid.
Leave to cook for around ten minutes.
Remove and sprinkle with the hibiscus salt.
