Couple of years ago I found this waffles-maker in you summer house – we have almost forgotten that we have it. I baked some waffles, repeated again, I loved the smell of it, but I didn’t like the texture. They were sweet, but soft and more like a pancakes, but not a crispy waffles.

It took me couple of times to have the best result I would want from these waffles and today I am very happy about the recipe I managed to have.

Why you have to try this recipe?

These Lithuanian waffles are quiet sweet and harder than those that we are used to – Belgian waffles. They are often used as a base for other desserts. For example, if you coat several waffle layers with condensed milk or caramel, you can get a waffle cake, sometimes eaten in Lithuania and other neighbor countries.

You can also roll warm, thin waffles and fill them with boiled sweetened condensed milk – you’ll get totally delicious. Don’t forget about ice cream. You’ve eaten ice cream cones thousands of times, but have you ever tried ice cream in a waffle cup?

No matter what kind of waffles you would like to try or used to enjoy, you should try the recipe, because you are guaranteed to like it. You only need a few simple ingredients: butter, flour, sugar, eggs and… cinnamon.

How to use old waffles-maker?

This Soviet-style gadget for making waffles have been in use for more than 40 years and it is still working perfectly.

Heat the waffle iron. It is heated for approximately 10 minutes and makes a specific sound – as clock ticking. As you hear it, you know that it is ready to be used.

As soon as it becomes hot, grease it on the inside with vegetable oil or some butter. This only needs to be done once.

Put a tablespoon of dough in the middle of the iron and close for one minute or one minute and a half. Roll them right after taking out of the iron while they are still hot.
