I have some days off work to recover and so I asked my Mother to show me how to make Pandan Waffle. “It’s so easy!” she said. “Well Mom, I want to see you make it and I also want to record it to share it with my viewers.” my reply to her. She agreed and so we set a time to make it happen and here it is.
Pandan Coconut Waffle (makes about 10 waffles)
1 pkg (12 oz) banana & shrimp batter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pk grated coconut
3 cups sugar
3 cups cold water
1 teaspoon pandan extract
oil for brushing
In a bowl or pot, add the batter follow by the salt and grated coconut.
Next add the sugar and water, gradually. Mix all the ingredients well.
Add pandan extract slowly and mixing as you go to incorporate it into the batter. Minty green is the color you want to aim for. Set the batter aside once color is achieved.
Heat waffle maker and brush the top and bottom grid with oil. Allow some time for the oil to sizzle a bit. Once ready, ladle some of the pandan waffle batter onto the grid. Close the lid and breathe in that wonderful coconut and pandan aroma.
When the waffle maker signals that your waffle is ready carefully open the lid. Use the back of a knife to help life the waffle off the grid and allow to cool.
Repeat the process until you have used all the waffle batter. ENJOY!
– You can also substitute grated coconut with coconut milk. If you decide to do so, make sure to also adjust the amount of water or not use it at all.
– If your waffle maker tend to stick, you can add a little bit of oil into the waffle batter. Brushing a lot of oil into the waffle grid will make the waffle crispier but also greasy as well.
– You can also add sesame seeds to the batter for a nutty and toasty flavor.
