For The Waffles

  • 110 g plain flour
  • 35 g light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 ml whole milk
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 75 g cornflakes

For The Bbq Chicken

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 25 ml cider vinegar
  • 150 g bbq sauce
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts

To Serve

  • 2 tbsp cornflakes
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
Start the Batter Mix

Step 1

Start The Batter Mix

Mix together the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder in a bowl. Separate the eggs, adding the yolks to the dry ingredients and the whites to another bowl. Add the milk to the dry ingredients and whisk well to incorporate that and the yolks.

Fold in Eggs and Cornflakes

Step 2

Fold In Eggs And Cornflakes

Whisk the egg whites to medium peaks and gently fold them through the batter. Just before cooking, roughly crush the cornflakes in your hands and fold them in through the batter.


Step 3


Heat a waffle maker or a frying pan (you can use this batter like pancake batter) and lightly grease with the oil. If using a waffle maker, pour in the batter and cook until the waffle is golden brown, crisp and comes away from the surface easily. Cut into quarters. If using a frying pan, put the pan over a medium-high heat and pour the batter into small circles. Cook until they just begin to cook around the edges and the bottom is crisp. Flip the waffle and cook for another 3 minutes, until both sides are crisp.

Make the BBQ Chicken

Step 4

Make The Bbq Chicken

While the waffles cook tip the honey, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, vinegar and BBQ sauce into a small saucepan and put it over a medium-high heat. Tear up the cooked chicken into the BBQ sauce mix and continue to heat gently while you stack your waffles.
