You’ll Never Want Another Pancake

September 23, 2008

 

Just so I don’t get anyone’s hope up, this isn’t actually a recipe for chocolate chip belgium waffles (as the picture suggests)…though they sound good, too:)

This is, however, a fantastic recipe for some of the finest waffles that N. and I (J.) have ever had. Not only are they a truly tasty stand-alone waffle, but would taste wicked-good with just about any of your favorite waffle/ pancake toppers.

So, below is the recipe. I’ve made a few changes from the original as we received it, but if you make the stock waffle I doubt you’ll be disappointed.
Ingredients:

2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch-to-1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)

Method:

Preheat waffle iron. Beat eggs in large bowl with hand beater until fluffy. This is the most key step in the entire process. If the eggs aren’t as fluffy as you can get them they’ll seem a little dense. Beat in flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla, just until smooth.
Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. Serve hot.

I really can’t add much to these instructions or ingredients; they’re truly good. Give them a try, and let us know what you think!

    I have some elderberry syrup I made that would be fantastic with these, especially if I add some lemon peel to them. Can’t wait. Thanks.

    About that bread recipe. Cut the sugar to 2 tablespoons and it comes out fine and not so over the top sweet. Its also nice with spice and sultanas added, or with jam folded through (now that IS sweet).

    We also like it made into buns with tasty cheese and tomato paste in the middle. Great for school lunches. I even swapped 2 cups of flour for 2 cups of wholemeal flour and it was still great.

    Thanks
