  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, plus ¼ cup extra for garnish
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

Lime and lychee syrup

  • Zest and juice of 2 limes
  • 565g can lychees, drained, syrup reserved
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar

  1. To make the syrup, place the lime zest and juice along with the syrup from the lychees and ½ cup water into a saucepan. Add sugar and bring to the boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes or until reduced by half. Stir in lychees and simmer until thick and syrup; set aside.
  2. Toast ¼ cup of shredded coconut under a hot grill for 1–2 minutes or until golden. Remove and set aside.
  3. To make the waffles, combine flour, sugar, untoasted shredded coconut and baking powder into a large mixing bowl; make a well in the centre.
  4. Whisk coconut milk, eggs and coconut oil together and pour into dry ingredients. Carefully fold through until just mixed through; it will still have a few lumps.
  5. Select CLASSIC waffle setting and dial up number 5 on the browning control dial.
  6. Preheat until orange light flashes up and the word HEATING disappears.
  7. Using waffle dosing cup, pour ½ cup of batter into each waffle square. Close lid and cook until timer has finished and ready beep has sounded 3 times. Repeat with remaining batter.
  8. To serve, stack two waffles on top of each other and top with lychee syrup, coconut ice cream, mint sprig and toasted shredded coconut.
