What could be more festive than warm vanilla waffles  with cinnamon sugar.  These cute little rosettes are eaten all over the world but popular in Scandinavia around Christmas.  Super easy to make and even easier to consume. Before you know it – half a dozen have passed your lips without you even realising!!  They look complicated but are really not.  I only made them for the first time recently but will become a firm, festive favourite in our house.

140g plain  flour

pinch salt

2 tsp castor sugar

2 eggs

250ml  milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

oil, for  deep frying

Mix all ingredients together to form a smooth batter

Heat the oil to 190 degrees centigrade

Heat the waffle iron  in the oil for 2 mins

Then dip in the batter but not so it goes over the top – just round the edge.

Dip into the oil for about a minute until brown – they will fall off the iron themselves.

Drain on paper

Dip in cinnamon sugar or sift with icing sugar

Then eat! You can keep them in an air tight tin for up to a couple of days
