I finally got around to visiting Stacked Diner in Kloof Street. I don’t think there is a coffee spot or store on that street that isn’t aesthetically pleasing, so it definitely didn’t disappoint.
Their food isn’t halal, so we couldn’t eat any of their meals. I went for waffles and an iced coffee (I probably would’ve gone for waffles anyway, if I’m being honest).
The portions are a little pricey for the size but they were delicious. Apart from the yummy food and good company, the staff were helpful and the space is just so darn dreamy. So if you’re in the area and in need of your waffle fix, pop in, and try it out.
On Sunday, we were treated to a taste of Spring here in Cape Town, with the sun making an appearance and the iciness in the air taking a day off. My family decided to take advantage of this, and I found myself in the lovely little town of Stellenbosch. A Sunday isn’t a Sunday without a visit to a cute café for a little treat, so we visited the charming Crème de Levain, a lovely little café, bakery and creamery. The interior is simply gorgeous, and their waffles are incredible. If you’re in the Stellies area and need a place to refuel, make sure to check this little place out…
I am in the midst of exams at the moment and decided to do a little post that’s super-yum just to chill.
Here’s a really easy waffle recipe I found and absolutely love! I poured the batter into a mini doughnut machine to make mini waffle doughnuts, but you could always just go traditional and use a waffle iron.
You will need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 beaten eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence (I prefer vanilla extract)
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/4 cup of cooking oil
Combine all dry ingredients
Make a well in the centre and add the eggs, vanilla essence and milk
Add the oil and stir until everything is combined
Pour into waffle iron/ doughnut machine and bake!
These are super yummy!
I am also super-excited because I wrote a letter to Ideas magazine and they published it!
