Racehl Khoo's move to Sweden has introduced her to many new dishes and recipes - and she loves putting her own spin on them. "When it came to trying my first Swedish waffle, it was love at first bite. My Swedish waffles, however, have a little twist on them with a butternut squash ... it tastes delicious and it gives a lovely colour too," she says of this recipe, which she shares in her latest TV show, My Swedish Kitchen (watch double episodes 7.30pm Mondays on SBS Food, then on SBS On Demand). This clever creation works with both sweet and savoury toppings. And more good news: "If you don;t have a waffle iron," says Khoo, "you can use the same batter to make small, round pancakes in a frying pan." You can also make the batter a day ahead. Now that's a waffle recipe to suit everyone!
Waffle + maple syrup + cream = brilliant breakfast.

Waffles are an institution in both Norway and Sweden. The Swedes prefer light, crispy waffles served with berries and cream; the Norwegian waffles are soft and are often folded around slices of caramelised goat's cheese. Adam Liaw's 2 for 1 recipe is begging you to take out your waffle iron.
