Pandan Waffles

Salam to all,

Yesterday was the second time in a week that I took hb to see the GP.  He has been sick since last Tuesday.  He did go to work last Wednesday and Thursday, off for 3 days and went back to work again on Monday and went on medical leave again on Tuesday.  He hasnt had any proper meal for 4 days now, he's been drinking lots of water and only had a few pieces of pears, apples and oranges for the past 2 days.  Doctor said he probably got the flu virus but since he got the influenza jab, thats the reason why he hasnt been suffering from the full blown flu.  He's been complaining of headaches, leg cramps and has been throwing up.  Poor hb, hopes he gets well soon, InsyaAllah.

Me and Jannah have been having simple meals since hb got sick.  I did ask hb if he wanted to eat anything but he snapped at me saying that if I kept on talking abt food to him he will throw up.....jeeezzz I hope he's not pregnant hehehez cos I am pretty sure that I am not :pp.  He hates rice porridge, chicken soup, any kind of soups......if I am sick, I jolly well will live on those yummy meals ;)  Today, was the worst day for him.  He didnt even got out of the room and didnt even have his coffee at all....haiizzz.

After sending hb to the doctor yesterday, we headed home.  Jannah was throwing tantrums in the car saying that she doesnt wanna go home.  So, I told hb that I will send him home so he can rest and will take Jannah out for a walk.  We didnt go anywhere, just around the town area here.  Nothing much to do here......I took Jannah to McDonald's and to The Warehouse.  The Warehouse is just like Carrefour in Singapore without the food/groceries aisles.  It's where most Kiwis get their bargains ;) from clothes, to shoes, to household items, toys, books, bbq items, confectioneries, beauty products, electrical items and many more.  Jannah wanted to get a unicorn (her favourite animal hehehez) pillow pet that she's seen on telly many times but I managed to coax her not to buy it as she has enough (tonnes of) soft toys and pillows.

As we were browsing, she saw a waffle maker and start telling me how she remembered having them when we were in Singapore and wanted to have them again.  I kept on asking her if she was sure that she wanna have some waffles and she kept on answering yes.  Not that I dont want to buy the waffle maker, it was cheap, on special for $20-some al cheapo brand.  Just that I havent got any room for another kitchen gadget.  In the end, we bought it.  Decided to use the recipe that I saw on Ribbon and Circus's blog once and Jannah was a happy girl-sort of.  She kept on taste like the one she had in sg but insisted that they dont look like the ones we bought them in sg.'s hard to please a 4yr girl isnt it :D

Waffles for our dinner just now.  I filled them with peanut butter & nutella ;)

Pandan Waffles (makes 3-4 waffles)

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda + 1/2 tsp cream of tartar (OR 1 tsp baking powder + 1/4 tsp baking soda)
1 egg, whites separated from the yolk
1 cup coconut milk (I used milk)
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/2 tsp pandan extract
(You can use vanilla extract if you don’t have the pandan, but then it really wouldn’t be pandan waffles anymore, now would it? Find pandan extract in the baking section of your local Asian market.)

*If you double the recipe, most cans of coconut milk will be less than 2 cups, just add water to get correct liquid amount.
*Sugar can be halved for less sweet waffles.
*Self-raising flour can be used in place of flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

1. Turn on your waffle iron.
2. In one bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut milk, melted butter, egg yolk, and pandan extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently stir it in. Switch to a folding motion towards the end to incorporate all the flour. The batter will be a little lumpy and thick, but the important thing is not to overmix it.
3. Whisk the egg white until it forms stiff peaks. Gently fold the egg white into the batter.
4. When the iron is hot, ladle some of the pandan waffle batter onto the grid.

My hubby pun tak sker porridge. Bila I makan semeja dgn dia, I yg perihatin nih, *cewah* akan tutup my bubur dari pandangan dia; tapi give him soup anytime dia slurp *cumanya if sup ayam, dia tak cuit ayamnya..haishh mcm2*.

Kiranya you jadi Ms Nightingale ya?? How's your hubby now? Ada improvement tak?

Yums to those waffles. I am sure your hubby pun tak makan waffle tu sbb kalernya hijau, hehe..

Anie said...

Cik Som,

Itu lah dia, susah nak kena cater to tekak yg lain eh Cik Som. Ni I tgh train Jannah jadi dia suka makan apa yg I suka makan hehehez. Harap2 dia tak tukar selera bila dah besar nanti.

I Nightingale?? Muahahahaz....I jauhkan diri dari org sakit. Angin satu badan tu dia....cuma jadi org suruhan aja. Amik air, amik tissue, amik itu....amik ini :D My hb smalam satu hari tak makan. Hari ni dah masuk kol 3pm pun tak makan lagi. Hopes he gets better soon insyaAllah.

Ya betol....u ingat lagi yg my hb tak makan benda2 yg hijau hehehez ;)
