Waffles

Who doesn't like waffles?  Slightly crisp and delicious squares that ooze out syrup or jam when you bite into them. Perfect for breakfast or even dinner.  I sometimes make a double recipe so I can freeze some and save them for later.

My favorite recipe for great tasting waffles is the one I found on the Pioneer Woman website.  Perfect waffles every time.  The texture  has a slight crunch and is tender with a very slight vanilla flavor.  Add some butter, syrup, and some chopped nuts.  Tastes just as waffles should taste.

Waffles
From Pioneer Woman

Special Equipment: Waffle Iron

Ingredients

2 cups All-purpose Flour
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup Sugar
1-1/2 cup Milk
2 whole Egg Yolks
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon (additional) Vanilla Extract
1 stick (1/2 Cup) Salted Butter, Melted
4 whole Egg Whites

Preparation

Preheat the waffle iron to the regular setting.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, 2 egg yolks, and vanilla. Pour over the dry ingredients and very gently stir until halfway combined. Pour in the melted butter and continue mixing very gently until combined.

In a separate bowl (or using a mixer), beat the egg whites with a whisk until stiff. Slowly fold them into the batter, stopping short of mixing them all the way through.

Scoop the batter into your waffle iron in batches and cook according to its directions (lean toward being a little deep golden and crisp!) Remove and serve immediately with softened butter and warm syrup.

Serves 8

  2. I packed up our waffle maker when we moved. I should probably rescue it from its carton as your waffles look good. :)
