Chilean Waffles

A nice treat for afternoon coffee.

  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 12


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 125 grams of butter at room temperature

  2. Add the flour, stir until incorporated, and add the butter in small pieces. Stir with a wooden spoon until combined. It will be a soft and somewhat sticky dough.

  4. Turn on the waffle maker so that it gets hot.
  5. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions, remove a piece, and roll on the well-floured counter. Give it the shape of the waffle iron. It should be 3-5 mm thick.

  6. When the waffle maker is hot, place the dough and close, let it cook for 4 minutes, see if it is golden brown and continue cooking to the point you want. This depends on each machine, so you have to be careful and try.

  7. Take out and cut into sections. Spread one tablespoon of Manjar (dulce de leche) all over each area and cover it with another.
