So, thanks to my dear friend Alyssa and her boyfriend Shane, I have become obsessed with waffles and finding different ways to make them! I had them one weekend after crashing at their place and that very next day went out to HEB and bought a little waffle maker. For $10 it does the job! One word of advice, be sure to spray non-stick spray on the waffle maker before adding the batter.
Ingredients: (makes 6-8 waffles)
- 2 cups flour
- 3 tbs sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 separated eggs
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- any brand waffle maker
Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Set aside. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks well. Stir in milk. Add sifted dry ingredients to egg yolks and mix until moistened (be careful not to over mix). Add vegetable oil. Fold in egg whites.
Pour cinnamon in mixture. Stir.
Bake in preheated waffle maker for at least 4-5 mins, until crisp and brown. (in my waffle maker it takes about 10 mins or so..do the tooth pick test!)
I normally add 1 big ice cream scooper full of batter, around 3/4 Cup or so... make sure to use non-stick spray!! Well there you have it my readers, the delicious breakfast itself - WAFFLES!
Now you can use this base recipe to add different seasonings or add ins. For example you could leave out the cinnamon and add a 1/2 Cup or so chocolate chips - yum!
