I grew up eating these waffles my whole life. I would have to say that they are one of my favorite breakfasts! Although I'll admit, I'm weird. I don't really like syrup, and I like my waffles really really crispy. I let it cook until they are dark brown. I mostly only eat them with a little bit of butter, or once in a while I will top them with some strawberries and whipped cream. But these really are delicious!!
from Marla Sperry (my mom!!)
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 2/3 c. milk
6 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 eggs - put yolk in batter
Mix all ingredients except the egg white.Whip egg white in a separate bowl until peaks are formed.
Fold into batter.
Keep folding softly until the the egg white is completely incorporated.
Cook in waffle iron for about 3-4 minutes
or until golden brown (or if you are like me, for about 8-9 minutes, or until dark brown :) )
And walah! You have some beautifully fluffy and tasty waffles! Top them however you like. You can even add your blueberries, strawberries, etc. right into your batter. Mmmm..that sounds good! This recipe makes about 12 3x3" waffles, but if you want to use a belgian waffle maker I am not sure how many it will make. I actually half the recipe for the hubby and I, and we still have leftovers. But don't fret! Put your leftover waffles in a ziploc and put them in the frewzer, then in the morning and throw them in the toaster and you will have an Eggo waffle, only better!!
More reason to make much more than you actually need! ENJOY!!
P.S. I must apologize for some of these pictures. The lighting in my house is not the greatest and I have yet to find a place where I won't have a million shadows. I'll keep working on it!
