Cheesy Cornbread Waffles

Serves: 4

You will need

1 orange bell pepper, finely diced
50g plain flour
55g cornmeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp caster sugar
1 egg
140ml whole milk
50g butter, melted
50g cheddar cheese, grated
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
1 avocado
A handful roughly chopped parsley
4 tsp Greek yogurt
1 tbsp chopped jalapeno peppers (optional)


1 Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and sugar in a bowl.

2 Whisk together the egg, milk and 40g melted butter. Whisk the liquid into the flour then stir in the cheese, ¾ diced orange pepper, spring onions and jalapeno peppers (if using) until combined.

3 Preheat a 4-hole waffle maker.

4 Roughly chop the avocado and add to a bowl with the remaining pepper and parsley and toss to combine.

5 Brush the waffle maker with the remaining butter, then use a ladle the mix between the 4 waffle holes and cook according to machine instructions, until golden and crisp.

6 Carefully cut each waffle in half and serve with the avocado salsa and yogurt.

Notes – sweet orange peppers are mostly tucked away in these cheesy waffles, add jalapenos for heat if you like. If you don’t have a waffle maker the batter can be used just as well in a griddle pan.
