Not pancakes, which are surely tasty, but…WAFFLES!
Man, I love waffles, don’t you? Who doesn’t love waffles?! Not rhetorical. Come on, answer the question.
DONCHA LOVE WAFFLEZ?!
A resounding YES! echos back from all over the Internets!
Just as I suspected. For those of you who answered in the negative, my theory is this: If you don’t love waffles, then you simply haven’t had my waffles.
Pretty bold, right?
Sweet babies, you gotta know by now that OMT! ain’t messin’ around when she says something she makes is deeeee-lish. This particular recipe is a little more complex than most, but I’m telling you that these waffles are worth the effort to make. They are light, yet filling, and sure to put a smile on your waffle-lover’s face.
To the recipe!
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 eggs, separated
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 7 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Sift (or whisk) dry ingredients.
- Beat egg whites until stiff.
- Add egg yolks, milk and oil to dry ingredients. Using a hand mixer, mix together thoroughly.
- Gently fold egg whites into batter.
- Pour batter onto waffle grid in an X-pattern.
I pretty much always double this recipe when feeding more than four adults. If you have leftovers, either store them in the fridge for the week (in a zip-lock bag) or freeze.
Typically, if I’m going to the trouble of making these waffles, I’m doubling the waffle goodness. We eat what we want, then put the rest in the fridge or freezer. They’re a great grab-n-go waffle for the kids before school, as they can be eaten cold or warmed up. They’re an easy afternoon snack smeared with peanut butter and raisins. They’re a fun indulgent supper when you’ve had a hard day.
Since I dislike buying frozen waffles (they remind me of hockey pucks), making this recipe serves two purposes. #1: The taste is far superior to frozen. #2: They cannot be used as Frisbees by your creative children.
We’ve topped them with peach preserves, eggs and bacon, Maple Syrup, peanut butter and whipped cream. Soon, I’m trying a cookie butter version! Use your imagination for what appeals to your taste buds. DO IT!
Happy Waffle Makin’, my babies!
