Waffles: A Golden Start of a Brand New Day!

I don’t know about you, but piping hot waffles, fresh off the griddle are a perfect start of a brand new day.

This golden treat is especially welcomed after an invigorating morning run or long hike through the woods.
On occasion I may add pecans or walnuts, but to me, plain with a touch of butter & pure maple syrup is one of the best ways to enjoy waffles in their pure & simple goodness!

You must try one of my favorite waffle recipes below: I’m going to go into great detail here, but once you make waffles a couple of times it’s really pretty simple.

Waffle Recipe:

Since waffles are basically pancake batter fancied up a bit, there’s really no reason to re-invent the wheel here. Just start with these fresh ingredients to whip up a nice -n- fluffy batter.
1 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
4 tsp of baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp. sugar
2 eggs
1 ¾ cup of milk
½ cup of melted butter
¼ tsp vanilla extract

Now let’s get busy:

Using two small mixing bowls, separate the egg whites
from the yolk.
Using a wire whisk, whip the egg whites until fluffy.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the vanilla extract, milk, yolk & butter.
Now add the salt, sugar & baking powder.
Last, but not least, slowly add the flour until all ingredients are incorporated. DO NOT… I repeat… DO NOT over stir.
Stir until all ingredients are fully incorporated and the batter is smooth & fluffy, then leave the batter alone! Take heed with this, because it provides the lightest waffles possible.
Heat the waffle iron now, it should have been heating while you were making the batter, I failed to mention this earlier, but no matter.
The batter can either rest while the waffle iron’s heating or it’s perfectly fine to pour the batter right onto a pre-heated, medium-hot waffle iron.
Pour enough batter to cover the entire iron, then close & rotate or simply close, allowing the waffle to cook for approximately 2 minutes.
You may adjust your timing, depending upon how soft or crisp you’d prefer your waffles.
Get butter, syrup and a beautiful serving plate ready to receive the waffles.
Serve immediately or keep tightly covered in a warming oven.

Enjoy! :))

Some of my favorite things are cooking up time honored, homemade recipes from scratch or even cooking up brand new ones using something I rarely use... a recipe book! My mamma taught me good manners & she taught me how to cook, so I really don't have problems sharing and you're always welcomed to pull up a chair! Did I mention how I love great fashion? I'll try to be brief here, because honestly, I could go on and on regarding the wonderful world of fashion. Just suffice it to say that I'll do my best not to get too carried away with the fashion bit. But designing or sewing great fashion is also a big part of who I am!
