Waffles with Hot Chocolate by Jamie Oliver on Jamie’s Festive Feast

Tonight on Jamie’s Festive Feast, Jamie digs into the archives to retrieve a recipe that is perfect for this time of year, waffles served with hot chocolate.

To make his waffles, Jamie breaks two free range eggs into a large mixing bowl with 300ml of fresh milk and a pinch of salt. He whisks this all together.

He adds 225 grams of self raising flour to the mixture and continues to whisk, before adding baking powder. This is followed by 100 grams of melted butter to create his perfect waffle batter.

Jamie explains that it’s best to leave the waffle batter to rest for around 30 minutes before cooking with it.

After the batter has rested and bubbles have formed, he pours it into a hot buttered griddle pan.

Jamie smooths the batter out over the entire surface of the pan and leaves to cook.

Jamie advises that the waffle will take around 20 minutes to cook through. You should lift the edges occasionally to check for colour, and when it reaches a rich golden colour, you should flip the waffle to cook the other side.

Once the waffle has cooked through, Jamie’s tips it out of the griddle pan and spreads maple syrup over the top before cutting into long slices.
