Homemade Pandan Waffle

In Singapore it is quiet easy to find freshly made waffles that are available in different fillings from most of the neighbourhood bakery shops. I remember a few years back a piece of "plain" waffle cost around 70 cents compared to now which is about S$1.00 - S$1.20 depending on the shop. And my favourite place to grab a piece of crisp and hot waffle is always at PrimaDéli where they used to make delicious waffles many years back during my school days.

Recently I have seen quiet a number of people in my facebook timeline sharing photos of either the  Taiyaki(Japanese fish pancake) or Waffles that they have made for breakfast or tea snack. So without hesitate, I also Google to read more on the related recipe and I have found one which I think is pretty easy to follow using electric Waffle Maker.

(Pandan Flavour)

This recipe requires separate whisking of egg yolk and white before folding the mixture together to form a waffle batter. Base on the positive comments and feedback shown on Annie's site,  I decide to give this recipe a try since it is quiet similar to the recipe I have which included together with my Waffle Maker.

Recipe adapted and modify from House of Annie, Pandan Waffles.

(Makes: 4 pieces | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 10 minutes)

125g All-purpose Plain Flour
50g Caster Sugar
1.5 Teaspoon Cornflour
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Egg, yolk and white separate
100ml Coconut Milk
80ml Drinking Water
1/2 - 3/4 Teaspoon Pandan Paste
30ml Salad/Vegetable Oil

1. In a mixing bowl, whisk in coconut milk, pandan water(pandan paste mix with 80ml drinking water), oil and egg yolk till well-combined.

2. Using another bowl, sieve in all dry ingredients such as flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cornflour.

3. Next using a whisk, stir in wet ingredients into the flour mixtures till the batter is slightly lumpy and thick.(do not over mix at this stage)

4. Whisk Egg White with pinch of cream of tartar on medium speed using electric whisk till stiff peaks.(done is about 3 - 5 minutes. To test overturn the bowl and the white should remains without falling)

5. Gently fold white into the flour better till incorporate.

6. Preheat waffle iron and ladle 1 to 1.5 scoop(depending on the size of the scoop) of batter onto hot waffle iron. Cook according to the machine instruction manual until golden brown.

7. Serve hot with honey, jam, kaya, chocolate and etc.

~ You can replace Pandan Paste and 80ml drinking water with 50ml Fresh Pandan Juice and 30ml drinking water.

~ Coconut milk can be replace by fresh milk if you prefer a healthier version.

I love to have my waffle with lots of unsalted butter and honey whereas my boy prefer to have extra spread of his favourite Nutella. No matter which is your choice of spread I am sure nothing beats a pieces of freshly homemade waffle to perk up your day together with a cup of coffee or tea.


  1. Hi Ellena,

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. May I check if you need to grease the waffle maker when you pre-heat it?

  9. hi Ellena, may i know where you buy your metal measuring cups from? im been trying to get it but cant seem to find metal type only plastic.

    1. Hi Shirley, I got my metal measuring cups from Australia years back :)

  10. Hi
    I love your blog, it's my life-saver site everytime when I don't know what to cook for my DS.
    Wanted to try out this pandan waffle, may i know where to get the Pandan Paste?


    1. Hi Labbit,

      Thanks for your kind words. You can get Pandan Paste from any leading supermarkets like Cold Storage, Fairprice or Phoon Huat. Hope that help.


  11. hello! before I try your recipe, I would like to clarify the coconut milk stated? Cos per your photo attached, it's coconut cream.

    1. Hi Mom, you can used either coconut milk or cream just that cream is more fragrance and with thicker texture.

  12. Hi Ellena

    May i know where to you bought your waffer mould from?
    thank you


  13. Hi Ellena, I tried making the waffle today. Texture is nice but taste different. Very eggy. Can u advice why is it so?

    1. Hi Sue! Did you change or replace any ingredients in the recipe? so far ours is ok. no eggy taste.

    2. Didn't change anything...and inside is not thoroughly cooked. Maybe coz I used fire to cook instead of electric waffle maker?

  14. Hi Ellena,

    Is it possible to use pandan essence? If yes, how much should I use and should the amount of water remain the same? Thanks in advance.


    1. Hi Emily, Yup you can replace the pandan paste with pandan essence. The amt use can be the same or slightly more to 1 teaspoon. HTH :)

  15. hi Ellena,

    I baked it today in my cupcake case and it works! The only thing is i have to add more sugar as the recipe is meant for waffles. It taste a little less sweet. With more sugar, i think it will be perfect for cupcake version!

    I bought the same waffle machine as you but i haven't try using it for waffle baking. I am wondering how you take the waffle out from the waffle machine....

    1. Wow! Cupcake version cool! Any photo or link to share :)

  16. My son loves Waffle. Can we make it eggless. Can you suggest something to replace eggs.

    1. Hi Payal, sorry for my late reply. Yup you can make an eggless pancake by replacing equal amount of egg with mashed banana :)
