Cheesy chipotle waffles recipe with hibiscus salt

Cheesy Chipotle Waffle recipe with hibiscus salt

I prefer savoury waffles to sweet and this recipe has a light batter while, at the same time, 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 the work in this recipe a matter of mere minutes. I'm going to experiment with some other savoury waffle ideas...

Makes 10

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.


  1. They look delicious! What did you think of the Cusinart Waffle machine, I'm in the market for a new one after a few rubbish ones.

  2. I think it's very good, the most important part being that it is easy to clean!

  3. Hi Kerstin, that waffle maker has caught my eye. A worthy kitchen gadget do you think? Bushra

    1. I thought it was pretty good Bushra. How often does one make waffles? Enough to spend money on the machine? I think if you only make sweet waffles, then lets say you use it once a week for brunch on a weekend. But if you include savoury waffles, as say, a once a week, mid-week treat for the kids and yourselves, then the purchase becomes worthwhile.

  4. This looks so tasty, I want to eat one now


I would love to hear what you think of this post! I try to reply to every comment (if there is a delay, I am probably away from an internet connection or abroad)
