Buckwheat and millet waffles

I started this recipe with a lot of energy until I have reached one line "chestnut flour". I was sure I still have some but I couldn't find it at all in my pantry. It was too late to look for another recipe, so I have decided to replace this ingredient with something that I had left: buckwheat flour and millet flour. I have continued the recipe wondering if it would ended up in the garbage. Finally, it didn't and what I made was unexpectedly delicious. The buckwheat flour came with an interesting aroma and the texture was soft. They have nicely grew in the waffle maker. Adding raspberry jam on top made them incredibly tasty. Here it is the recipe I made in the end ...

  • 250ml milk (warm)
  • 3 eggs
  • 100g butter (melted)
  • 12g fresh yeast
  • 125g all purpose flour
  • 100g buckwheat flour
  • 25g millet flour
  • 30g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt

  1. Beat the eggs in an omelet style.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and mix with a standing mixer until  well combined.
  3. Let the bowl covered for 1h30. The dough will double its volume.
  4. Mix again the dough 
  5. Heat the waffle maker and pour the dough with a ladle.
  6. Let them cool on a rack.

Serve them with raspberry jam.

The original recipe remains for another time :)
