Classic waffles

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?

A Classic Waffle Recipe

Classic waffles

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together liquid ingredients.
  3. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet, mixing thoroughly.
  4. When batter is fully incorporated, heat the waffle maker.
  5. 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.
  6. Waffles should take just a few minutes to crisp (my waffle maker has an automatic button that goes off when the waffles are ready).
  7. Serve with maple syrup and butter.
