I have had this cool waffle maker for a while now.
I use it allot. Ok, maybe not as much as I should, but I dust it off and fire it up at least once a month.
OK, once every OTHER month.
The Boy clambered this morning that he was hungry and couldn’t fathom eating another bowl of cereal or a pop-tart again.
He is rather dramatic for an 8 yr old.
I said…”Lets make Waffles!”
He jumped up and down for joy.
I went to my pantry to get the waffle mix (cause it was a just toss it together kind of morning).
I was screwed.
So I thought.
Way back, I had found a recipe for a good and really yummy waffle that I tried and kept for instances such as this. And even though I really wasn’t in the mood to make a scratch waffle, I did.
Because I am that awesome of a mom.
And I didn’t want to deal with the repercussions of not producing a waffle for the boy.
Hey. You don’t have to live with him.
This recipe from Tammy’s recipes is really simple, and that good. Sweet, like she states, but we like things sweet here.
The are crisp and fluffly and great with warmed butter and syrup.
This may be dinner too.
Good idea Boy!!
Homemade Belgian Waffles
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Fresh fruit, jam, or syrup**
1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, and baking powder.
2. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
3. In yet another bowl, lightly beat egg yolks and then add milk, butter, and vanilla, mixing well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold egg whites into batter.
4. Bake in a pre-heated waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions, until golden brown.* I like to set a timer so I don’t have to keep checking, or risk forgetting to take the waffles out on time!
5. Serve warm with fresh fruit, jam, or syrup.**
Let me know what you think. And don’t forget to stop by Tammy’s blog to thank her for your awesome breakfast!
