Sweet waffles are delicious but savoury, stuffed with cheese or studded with vegetables, are a sure-fire way to kick start the day.

These made-from-scratch waffles are ready in less than 30 minutes with basic ingredients from your pantry and a trusty waffle maker, of course!

We love how they turn out perfectly crisp and golden on the outside while being light and fluffy on the inside.



For the batter

  • 250g plain flour
  • ¼ cup cornflour
  • 1 tsp baking powder (or self-raising flour)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • ¼ cup cheddar cheese, grated

For the topping

  • 2 eggs, poached
  • 2 rashes of bacon, fried
  • 2 tbsp hollandaise sauce


  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, or a large drink shaker. If baking powder is hard to get, use self-raising flour instead. 
  2. Add the buttermilk and the egg yolks and mix or shake well. If you’re not using a drink mixer, add the cheddar cheese now and any other optional ingredients such as chopped mushrooms, chopped capsicum, or spinach. 
  3. Heat the waffle machine and give it a light spray of olive oil. 
  4. Pour in about a cup of mixture. If you are using the drink bottle, pour in half a cup and then sprinkle with the cheese or extra ingredients and then pour some more batter over the top. 
  5. Close the lid and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes or until golden. Remove and serve with bacon and eggs, topped with hollandaise.
