After years of making Waffles with Plain Flour, and over 25 years of baking the house bread with Strong Flour it never occured to try Waffles with itSuberb !

4 oz bread flour
1 oz milk powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
2 tablespoons Sunflower Oil
6 fl oz (just shy 1/2 pint) water
whisk and mix until smooth. (This is a thin batter that can be poured into a Waffle Iron)

I used milk powder so the dry ingredients can be taken out into the hills pre-mixed then just add water,oil and an egg like Pancakes


  1. Dan, thank you for reminding me that I own a Griswold American No.8 waffle iron. Works as good as ever and double cream& maple syrup is just as nice.
    As an aside; dried egg works well in field batter mix.

    1. Cheers Ian, can you recomend a Dried Egg source ? I used to buy it at Tescos but they no longer stock it, same for all the local supermarkets

  2. I used to buy it from Tesco too, and haven't bought any for quite a while. A quick google came up with a source of whole dried egg, but even at its cheapest it would be about double the price of fresh eggs and you'd have to buy the equivalent of 6 dozen. Packing the odd couple of fresh eggs is probably easier at the end of the day.
    atb, Ian

    1. Cheers Ian I usually put the eggs in a zip lock bag wrapped up in the billy but have thought of something like this :- http://www.banggood.com/Portable-Plastic-2-Eggs-Box-Camping-Picnic-Folding-Egg-Box-Carrying-Case-Container-p-988486.html
