I just recently confiscated my waffle maker from my parent’s house. I had lent it to them a few years back and completely forgot about it – how is that even possible?! And so a few weeks ago, on a particularly gloomy snow day, the hubs and I were trying to figure out what to have for breakfast when we both exclaimed “WAFFLES!” Unfortunately for us, we had to wait a few days until I could collect said waffle maker.
Since then, we’ve enjoyed waffles twice. And both times were amazing – the first time with butter/syrup and the second time with a dash of powdered sugar. We can’t wait to have these in the spring with strawberries and fresh blueberries – mmmm. Until then, we’ll enjoy them as is.
Are you a waffle-lover?
CLASSIC WAFFLE RECIPE AND INGREDIENTS
*makes about 10, possibly 11
1 3/4 c flour
1/4 c cornstarch
1 T sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 c + 1 T milk
4 T butter
1 tsp vanilla
Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together liquid ingredients. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet, mixing thoroughly. When batter is fully incorporated, heat the waffle maker. Pour about 1/3 c batter or enough to fully fill each waffle area – spread out quickly (to avoid having holes in edges) and close lid. Waffles should take just a few minutes to crisp (my waffle maker has an automatic button that goes off when the waffles are ready).
Serve with maple syrup and butter.
