Sam Hardacre one of The Marketing Lab's array of Geek Brains, brought this rather clever idea to my attention and also provided the picture, thanks Sam.

It does not require a Waffle maker and can made with a normal stove-top griddle pan.

Thanks Sam!


Hi Sam (& Louisa). You are now, but a very distant memory, but your griddle-pan waffles will live on in perpetuity.

Mise en place

  • Pre heat the oven to 160° C (325° F - gas 3) if you are making lots so they can be kept warm
  • Get the griddle pan nice and hot before hand as some cast iron pans can take a while to get hot.


  1. Whisk the milk and eggs in a large bowl
  2. Using a fine sieve, sift the flour, salt and baking powder into the egg-mix.
  3. Fold the softened butter into the mixture. Mix this just enough to combine the ingredients. Jamie Oliver advises not to over-mix at this stage or the waffles will not puff up.
  4. Add the extra teaspoons of butter to the pan and brush or swill to coat evenly.
  5. Immediately pour the mixture into the pan over a medium heat and carefully tip it to spread and cover the whole of the pan as you would with a pancake
  6. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes on this side, or until golden, then then flip the waffle and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes on this side
  7. If you are making lots then keep them warm in the oven, but don't stack them of they will sweat
