topping: lots of butter plus
maple syrup for ube
coconut sauce for buco-pandan,
sugar and cheese powder for ensaimada
I love buttermilk yeast waffles. They're easy to prepare; just mix and leave in the refrigerator overnight, the next day bake the batter in a Belgian-style waffle maker. This time I divided the batter into three and added the usual Filipino flavors: ube and buco-pandan, and a new one "ensaimada" (a mixture of butter, sugar, and cheese powder). All flavors are sooo delicious with loads of butter and maple syrup or top the buco-pandan with thin coconut sauce and the "ensaimada" with finely grated cheese and sugar.
I used artificial flavored ube powder (my sister bought it from Divisoria) instead of real ube and I was surprised the waffles taste great. The powder would be a great addition to real ube for cakes and breads. For my next batch I'll have matcha, mashed bananas, and mango pulp.
