I’m makin’ waffles!

Littletree has been begging asking to make waffles, so we decided to get a waffle iron. After a full day traipsing around every shop we could find that might possibly stock waffle irons, and finding only a massive assortment of specialised appliances for things that don’t need a specialised appliance – there was a brownie-maker, a cookie-maker, a cupcake-maker, even a hot-chocolate-maker! But no waffle iron, ironically waffles are the one thing you actually need something to make them with.

So we went online. I found on eBay a gorgeous original 1970s retro Breville waffle maker… so very funky! But also out of my budget, so we settled on a cheapo one and waited for delivery…

Thankfully didn’t have to wait long! Littletree was ecstatic!


We found a recipe that’s simple enough for her to make herself and that we can get all organic ingredients for – after discussing at length the ins and outs of separating eggs so one can whip the whites, and what happens to the egg protein when it’s whipped.


Seems everything turns into a science lesson with this kid!

But the end result… mmmmmmmm


Served with fresh, local raw cream, maple syrup, and bacon! So glad we have a local organic butcher!


  1. Oooh yummie, good idea!
    Here you can find lots and lots of those very cheap on a second hand website. So off to the site now!

  2. yeah, it seems they're not so common in Australia...


Thanks for your lovely words, witty banter and entertaining discussion :)
