Cooking isn’t for everyone. Some people claim they can’t make anything. But with a simple waffle recipe, you can make a yummy breakfast. There are so many mixes in boxes and ready-made frozen waffles. Isn’t that just simpler?
Of course putting a frozen square in the toaster and waiting for it to pop up IS easier. But homemade waffles are so much better. And you can make them! Most of the time, you will already have the necessary ingredients in your kitchen. Just double check before you start; you don’t want to get started and then discover that you are one egg short.
One simple recipe uses flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, eggs and milk. Begin by mixing 8 ounces of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 tablespoon of sugar and just a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Set this aside and move on to the butter.
Then, in the microwave or a small pan, melt the butter. Put this in a second bowl and add the eggs and milk. Mix these well. Now, add this to the large bowl containing the dry ingredients. Stir this thoroughly until there are no more lumps. This is your batter. Let this sit for a few minutes to flavor up while you turn on the waffle iron and let it get hot.
Once the iron has heated up, spray with a non stick cooking spray. Using a ladle, pour cup of the batter into the waffle iron. If a ladle is not handy, you can use a spoon. Close the iron and cook. Waffles are done when they are golden brown on both sides and can be removed easily. You will get about 8 waffles. You’ll be able to adjust the yield by changing the recipe. For example, for 4 waffles, use half of each ingredient. For 16 waffles, use twice as much of each.
If you want to get creative, you can add blueberries, cinnamon, chocolate chips, chopped bananas or raisins. Actually, anything you can think of can go inside your batter! Just be creative and make sure that whatever extras you add are sliced or cut small enough to be bite size. Otherwise they may be too difficult to cook and to eat.
You also have the option of making your waffles more healthful. Substitute any or all of the flour for whole wheat flour. Just make sure that the total amount of flour stays the same. You can also use free-range eggs or a butter substitute.
That’s all there is to it! If you don’t have a waffle iron, you can always use this waffle recipe to make pancakes. Just use the ladle to pour the batter onto a frying pan. It will taste just as good, just in a different shape!
