Melted butter for greasing plus 60g extra, melted
3/4 cup plain flour
2 tbsp caster sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
Vanilla ice-cream and maple syrup, to serve
1/4 cup white sugar
3 tsp ground cinnamon
Sift flour, caster sugar and baking powder into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, then add buttermilk, eggs, extra butter and vanilla.
Whisk to form a smooth batter. Transfer mixture to a large jug.
Pour batter evenly among waffle stick hollows. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until waffle sticks are pale golden and spring back when lightly touched with fingertips. Cool in pan for 2 minutes.
To make cinnamon sugar, combine sugar and cinnamon on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Loosen edges of waffle sticks with fingertips. Turn out into cinnamon-sugar mixture. Toss well to coat. Serve sticks warm with ice-cream and maple syrup.
