EGGO WAFFLES - STRANGER THINGS ELEVEN EGGOS
Do you know Stranger Things, don't you?! Some years ago, when the first season was released, I totally fell in love with this series and, when I started my recipe videos youtube channel, I immediately decided to make a recipe video about it.I love the 80's mood and in this recipe video I tried to re-create it making homemade Eggo waffles, like the ones Mike gives to Eleven and she keeps on loving until the 4th season.My homemade Eggos recipe is made with fresh eggs, just slightly sweet and without artificial flavours, like the original ones, so they are perfect to match with maple syrup and every kind of topping.This recipe is super easy and it's also great with salty stuffs since they are low in sugar.You can make them and store the leftover in refrigerator or freezer: when you need some Eoggs, you just warm them in a toaster.
- 450 g (3+3/4 cups) all purpose flour
- 1+1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 100 g (1/2 cup) sugar
- 4 eggs
- 240 ml (1 cup) milk
- 120 ml (1/2 cup) water
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) vegetable oil
- In a large size bowl mix together flour, baking powder, salt and set aside.
- In a medium size bowl mix the eggs and sugar until the mix will be pale and double in size (you can use an electric mixer for few minutes on high speed).
- Add the milk, water, and oil and mix until combined (don’t use the electric mixer now).
- Add the dry ingredients mix in 2 steps and mix until well combined. Don't overmix! You can use a sifter to avoid lumps.
- Preheat the waffle maker and grease both surfaces with some melted butter or vegetable oil.
- Pour about ½ cup of batter in the waffle maker and close. Cook for about 1 minute. Waffle should not browned to look like store bought Eggos.
- Repeat with the remaining waffle batter.
- Serve immediately with maple syrup on top or your favourite topping.
In the recipe video above from YouTube, the American amount (cups and tsp) are not perfect. I'm sorry, but I made this video years ago when I didn't have American cups and tsp. I always use a kitchen scale with grams, and Italian tsp size is smaller than US. Kindly refer to the written recipe above or to the grams amount that is always correct! You can store leftover waffles in refrigerator for 2 days or in freezer closed in a ziplock bag for up to 2-3 months. To defrost or heat your waffles, you can use a toaster: cook on the lowest setting until browned. If your waffles are too big, you can easily halve the waffles to fit into your toaster.
Let’s follow Eleven instructions in the recipe video above and make her favourite Eggos!
Thanks to my mom’s toaster directly from the 80’s that help me to recreate the vintage mood of the video!
If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can cook Eggo waffles in a nonstick pan like pancakes.
