Fans already know that the Netflix hit, Stranger Things has been renewed for a second season an you can bet that the Duffer brothers have a bounty of surprises planned. The end of season one left jus with a bunch of questions – warning: if you’re not done, there are some spoilers ahead – abort, abort. Simply head over to the recipe instead.
Still with us? Then we’re sure you have the same questions as us; has a part of Upside Down entered the sewer system thanks to Will? Is Eleven really gone? And, if she is – *sobs* – who was Hopper leaving a box of food for?
If you looked close enough, you’ll realise that the box has some Eggo waffles in it; Eleven’s favourite foods.
Is it possible she’s still alive?
We can think of no better way to hope that she is by eating her favourite food. Eggos are a brand of frozen waffles sold in the US made by the Kellogg Company. They’re available in a variety of flavours including blueberry, strawberry, apple cinnamon and buttermilk.
Even when Mike tells Eleven that his mother can make her pretty much anything, she only seems to want a plate of waffles. Critics have decided that this just further highlights Eleven’s intelligence; Eggo waffles, apparently, are the best thing ever.
Sadly, they’re yet to be available in India. Instead, we have a copycat recipe we’re sharing with you; enjoy a plate as you re-watch Stranger Things and pray that Eleven is still alive. This recipe will yield plain waffles; top them with chocolate sauce, fruits or whipped cream if desired.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 1/8 tsp salt
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 cup whole milk

Heat a waffle iron.
Sift the baking powder and salt into the flour.
Whisk the eggs.
Add the water, milk and oil and whisk with an electric whisk until well combined.
Stir into the flour and whisk for thirty seconds.
Pour the batter into the waffle iron and toast for a minute.
Repeat with the remaining batter.
Allow the waffles to cool.
Seal the waffles in a resealable bag and freeze.
When serving, remove from the bag, allow to defrost and toast in a toaster on the lowest setting.

Serve and enjoy.
