When I was surfing Aunty Yochana's blog, I chanced upon her mini doughnut recipe. She uses an electric doughnut maker. I don't own one and I don't intend to get one. I thought the waffle maker might come in handy and gave it a try.
I can't seem to be able to fill the waffle maker with the right amount of batter. It's either too much or too little. When it's too much, the batter overflows while cooking. When it's too little, I get deformed penguins (see those feet?).
I made another batch and this time round, I filled it up with a little bit more batter and got an almost perfect penguin. I'll say this is the first time ever I've gotten such beautiful penguins.
The inside is soft and fluffy :)
