Waffles



Often it takes us an all day trip to make a visit to see our doctor.

Our Kaiser HMO is 75 miles from our home, and when we have an appointment that calls for a follow-up the next day, it is more convenient to find a motel to stay overnight.

On one such occasion we stayed at a very nice place that offered a breakfast buffet the next morning.

My husband was fascinated with a very fancy waffle maker that was in the dining room.

The management had pre-filled waffle batter into small cups and you could bake them yourself. The instructions were to turn the waffle upside down during the baking and when the light went off it was ready.

“I must have one of these waffle makers,” said my husband, so upon our return home and a visit to Amazon.com  - - revealed a Restaurant type iron just to his liking.

Next hubby went searching for just the right recipe. He was able to find one that was even better than my old recipe, so now his is the one we use. I share it here with you. 

P.S. This Yummy Waffle recipe will work with any waffle maker. It does not need to be a waffle maker that turns upside down!

So Good Waffles

l/2 cube soft butter
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs separated

Sift dry ingredients into large bowl. In another bowl, whisk egg yolks, butter and milk together. Add to the dry mix. Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until fairly stiff and add to batter.

Measure 2/3 cup batter into preheated waffle iron and bake until brown. Top with fruit or warm syrup.

  1. My husband makes a lot of waffles around here -- we have his mom's old 1970s waffle-maker...still works beautifully!
