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?
- 1 3/4 c flour
- 1/4 c cornstarch
- 1 T sugar
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 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.
