Basic Waffle

November 7, 2010 Leave a comment


Here is a basic waffle recipe, I really was wanting some waffles this morning but couldn’t find my old stand by recipe.  So I had to go searching online and I found two I liked and combined them.  I loved it, I don’t know how different it is from my other recipe but these were very tasty!

I want to get fancy with waffles and make some pumpkin ones but the kids are not excited about that.  Unless they are plain they better have chocolate in them, so we will see maybe one of these days I will be able to slip some pumpkin ones by him.

This should get you 10-12 waffles

Basic waffles

2 c flour
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c milk – warm
1 1/4 stick of butter – melted
3 tbsp vanilla

I warmed my milk in the microwave for about 40 seconds.  Mix all your dry ingredients together first.  Then start adding the wet ingredients, but for the egg separate the yolk and whites.  Keep the whites for the end.  Whisk your batter up so it’s completely combined (a few lumps are fine)  gently fold/whisk in the whites at the end.

Make sure you spray your waffle maker good!  Oh and a tip I saw somewhere else, put a paper towel down under the waffles, helps so they don’t get really soggy.



French Toast

This is a very very simple french toast but I sure do love it!  What else is better than bread… grilled with egg, covered in butter and maple syrup?  Bacon??  Of course, but hey I can’t… well shouldn’t eat a whole pound of bacon as a meal!

I love french toast and some nights when I really am clueless as to what to make I make french toast.  I keep a loaf of Texas toast on hand for that very reason.  Can you make it out of regular bread, sure.  But Texas toast is so much nicer!  And sure you can use fancy bread… go ahead.  But I like my cheap,  Texas toast!  So I am going to give you my recipe for the mixture you dip the bread in.  Dip it, toast it up in a pan, serve hot and good to go!  Oh and this is one reason I love my griddle!  I can make 8 pieces at once, which may not be a need for some families but for mine it means I can actually eat it while it’s hot!
