Recipe: Basic Waffle Batter

Waffles are a terrific weekend breakfast... I know very few people who don't like waffles... You can make top them simply with maple syrup or fruit syrups or get fancy with other toppings... the options are limitless.

This recipe is a basic waffle batter…. very easy. What you do with it after it's made is up to you... personally... a little vanilla ice cream and maybe some peaches with some raspberry syrup... oh and did I mention fresh whipped cream? ... you have yourself a waffle version of that classic... Peach Melba... yummm!

However you make them... I'm sure they will be a hit at the family breakfast table.



Waffle Recipe:

All you need:

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, separated
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups whole milk
½ stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter , melted
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

All you need to do:

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow.

Add the milk, melted butter and vanilla and whisk until just blended… do not over beat the mixture.

Mix the wet mixture with the dry... don't over mix.

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with a mixer until soft peaks form (about a minute or two).

Gently fold in the egg whites into the egg mixture, be very careful not to over mix as this will “deflate the egg whites”.

I love waffles, but I never make them. I think it's the hassle of pulling out the waffle iron... LOL Not that it's that big of a hassle, but in my mind it is :)

Awwww... they really aren't that much trouble... and remember it's a one pan clean-up.... as opposed to eggs and hashbrowns... and whatever else you make for a breakfast.... and they're sooo special....
