50 g
☆Baking powder
2 teaspoons
50-100 ml
Vegetable oil
2 tablespoons


1. Lightly drain the water from the tofu (drain for about 15 minutes), and put into a bowl. Cream the tofu using a stick mixer or food processor.
2. Put the ☆ ingredients into a bowl (weighing it and then adding it to the bowl is fine) and use a whisk to mix it all together.
3. Add Step 1 to 2 and use a rubber spatula to gently mix. Add 50 ml of milk. Adjust the amount of milk until the batter is thick that it plops when the batter is scooped up.
4. Lastly, add vegetable oil and mix in. Cook it in a waffle maker and they're done I usually cook one side for 1 minute and 20 seconds.
