Mango Waffle

WP_20150726_005

Waffles and pancakes are like muffins and cupcakes. They may be similar but are quite different. There is a difference in their mixture, texture and obviously shape. My waffles usually have more ingredients than my pancakes. For example, they have more baking powder, a pinch of salt and sweeteners as brown sugar and vanilla. They also differ on the cooking time. Waffles require much more time than pancakes. This influence in their texture. My pancakes are soft in the outside but my waffles are crunchy in the outside and soft and moist in the inside.

This mango waffles are topped with a Cornstarch (maicena) with vanilla and has slices of mangoes, few rasberries and a drizzle of peanut butter.

Procedure:                                                                                                                                                                                         First, turn on your waffle iron on maximum heat.

Now, in a bowl mix all of the ingredients for the waffle with the mango juice until consistency. Pour all of the batter in the center of your waffle iron and let cook for five minutes each side. Take off the waffle and transport it to the serving dish.

While the waffle is cooking, prepare the “frosting”. In a small sauce pan dissolve the “maicena” with the vanilla and the almond milk. Once it has dissolved completely, turn on the stove top on medium heat. Stir constantly until it start to get consistency. Inmediatly, turn off the stove and pour the maicena over the waffle. It will hardens as a frosting. Now, add the toppings and enjoy!
