Is this a breakfast idea for Valentine’s Day? Or can you make this for the people you love every weekend? Nevermind, these heart-shaped Greek yogurt waffles are always a hit. At any time, on any day, and with anyone. And if you don’t have a heart-shaped waffle iron? No problem, love goes through the stomach, even in a round or square shape.
How to make heart-shaped Greek yogurt waffles?
The batter for waffles is ready in no time. That is of course very handy. Most of the time is spent baking, of course. But that’s where the waffle iron does the heavy lifting. You just have to scoop the batter into the waffle iron and let it bake for a few minutes. The biggest challenge is not to get distracted in the meantime and lose sight of the iron. Three minutes are over quickly.
The batter for heart-shaped Greek yogurt waffles
To make the batter, I usually place the mixing bowl on the scale. I then add the necessary amount of dry ingredients one by one. These are flour, starch, and powdered sugar. This way, I don’t have to use any other plates or bowls. Finally, I add a teaspoon of baking powder. Then I mix everything thoroughly.
Next, I place the bowl with the dry ingredients back on the scale. Now, we weigh the right amount of Greek yogurt that we want to add. Then the bowl can be removed from the scale and we add the eggs. We mix everything until we have a nice batter.
Meanwhile, the butter was allowed to slowly melt in a pan over low heat. It should definitely not start boiling. So give it some time and let it melt slowly. When it has melted, it can also be added to the batter for the heart-shaped Greek yogurt waffles. We finally mix everything together well and set the batter aside to rest.
Baking heart-shaped Greek yogurt waffles
While the batter is resting, you can take out and warm up the waffle iron. But it certainly doesn’t hurt to make the dough one to two hours in advance.
The baking time can of course vary from waffle iron to waffle iron and ultimately depends on the mold you use. So be sure to keep an eye on this the first time. Normally, you can count on about three minutes per bake.
Then put the waffles aside on a rack. This way they can steam off well and stay crispy.
If you are baking a larger quantity, the first waffles will of course be cold (or gone) before the last waffles are baked. To avoid this, you can keep them warm in the oven at 100°C, on a rack of course.
Warm waffles are always the tastiest. But they also taste delicious as a cold snack in between.
Variations and toppings for heart-shaped Greek yogurt waffles
Simple is the best. Just sprinkle some powdered sugar over your waffles, and then enjoy. But of course, there are infinitely more possibilities to give these waffles an extra flavor.
I always have cinnamon and ginger spices at home. Often, a considerable amount of them ends up under the dough.
But have you ever thought of honey, cocoa, peanuts, or even curry powder? These makes your waffles so much more exciting!
The usage of Greek yogurt in waffle recipes
Greek yogurt is a healthy alternative to butter or fat in waffles and related recipes. It also ensures that the waffles remain moist and sticky on the inside while remaining crispy on the outside. In addition, Greek yogurt contains fewer carbohydrates than classic yogurt.
