  • 100 ml buttermilk, well shaken
  • 400 gm plain flour
  • 100 gm (1 cup) rolled oats
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp baking powder



Heat in oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add chorizo and fry, turning occasionally, until crisp (1-2 minutes).

Waffles (For a quick and easy method, use Toscano Waffles 4 Pack)

Stir yeast and 125ml lukewarm water in a bowl until yeast dissolves.

Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat, add milk and warm gently until lukewarm.

Remove from heat and add to yeast mixture along with buttermilk.

Add flour, oats and a pinch of salt in a separate bowl, make a well in the centre, add milk mixture and mix to combine.
Cover with plastic wrap and stand until doubled in size (1-2 hours).

Beat in egg and baking powder until well incorporated, then cook in batches in a pre-heated waffle iron until golden and crisp (4-5 minutes; you’ll need to spread the batter in the waffle iron and it will puff up a lot as it cooks).
