To serve

  • butter
  • ham, or a fried egg, to top the waffles


  • Waffle iron


Place the dry ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine, reserving a pinch of chives to garnish
Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and add the milk and melted butter. Season with salt and pepper, then slowly whisk into the dry ingredients until you have a nice smooth batter
Turn on the waffle iron and wait until it has reached maximum temperature before ladling in the batter. Close the lid and cook until crispy and golden – how long this takes will depend on your waffle iron, but should be around 5 minutes
Serve hot with a sprinkling of chives, lashings of butter and ham, a fried egg or extra cheese
