Malted Waffle Recipe

How to make malted waffles? One way is to use malted milk and follow this malted waffle recipe. A quick note for people like us that did not actually know what malted means :). Malting is a process in which you let cereal grains to start developing, getting ready to sprout, the juices start flowing (we have no idea:) ) and just before they actually sprout and the plant develops they are quickly dried and the process is stopped. Talk about a buzz kill. Anyway. Malted grains can then be used to make malted flour and other things... for instance malted milk. Malted milk is a mixture of malted barley, wheat flour, and whole milk. The mix is evaporated until all you are left with is a malted powder milk. Well enough technical info for one malted waffle recipe. Lets get busy.

Malted Waffle Recipe

For this malted waffle recipe we will need:
1 egg
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons malted milk powder
3/4 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

This is one of the beat the egg whites waffle recipes so first thing we will do is this - separate the egg and beat the egg white in a small bowl until it's stiff.

Now take a bowl and mix in all the dry in ingredients - flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and malted milk powder. Take another bowl and mix in egg yolk, milk and melted butter. Add this to the dry ingredients bowl and again mix until the mixture just blends.

It's egg whites time. Fold in beaten egg white until just mixed. Stop, that enough :). Egg whites make the malted waffles softer. If you mix to much you loose the effect.

And you are done. Just bake the waffles according to the instructions on your waffle maker and your malted waffle recipe is finished.

This is a good recipe. I made it by the book yesterday and the waffles turned out great - only got about 2.25 waffles out of it though.

I tried it again just this morning with a few modifications that made them a bit fluffier and easier to prepare.

Replace the melted butter with canola oil,replace the milk with butter milk, and don't waste your time betting the egg white separate from the rest of the ingredients.

Great recipe, but it doesn't make a big batch. I made 6 medium sized pancakes out of this, but that was only enough for two people. Otherwise, wonderful recipe! My boyfriend asked me to make this again.

Can't wait to try this. BTW...the malting process converts starch in the grains into sugar. Then the sugar can be fermented into alcohol to make delicious beverages like beer or scotch. Yummy! Scotch and malted waffles!

This is the best waffle recipe I've ever tried! Like others state, be aware that the recipe as stated makes very few waffles - about 1 1/2 - 2. I did alter the recipe. First, I could not find malted milk in my store (and this was at a huge A & P). So, I bought malt Ovaltine (NOT chocolate!). Looking at the ingredients I saw it was basically malt and sugar, so I replaced both the malt and the sugar with 3 tablespoons of Ovaltine. I also used buttermilk which I think works better for pancakes and waffles (though one time they turned out a bit mushy - I may try regular milk next time). Like most recipes for waffles or pancakes it does not call for nearly enough liquid - I used about 1 1/2 cups buttermilk.

I tripled this recipe and made 9 large Belgian waffles. They were excellent! I did use another reviewer's suggestion and used powdered buttermilk with water in place of milk. However, if you want a crispy waffle, this is not it. Even with a few modifications (4 tbsps. Smart Balance Blend + 8 tbsps. canola oil, 1 tbsp. sugar + 2 tbsp. Splenda, 2 eggs + 1/4 c. egg substitute-remember this is for a triple recipe!), these came out perfectly! Will definitely use this recipe again.

I went to college in the South where malted pecan waffles a staple, this recipe is very close. I always double it and add 1 tsp vanilla and toasted pecans.

Although we don't like to admit it, there are times when you need to eat something other than waffles. Here you can find a link to Amazon which is a great place to buy your first or your new waffle maker. Then you have other sites that also offer great recipes and we like to visit them sometimes when we are in a mood for something other that waffles. Which is not very often :). Enjoy!
