HOMEMADE WAFFLES

In keeping with my breakfast food theme lately.... who doesn't love breakfast for dinner, once in a while? And what could be better than a steaming, hot waffle with deep pockets to hold all that butter and warm, sweet, delicious, homemade syrup?! These waffles have a 2 step process, but are well worth the time invested. I've used this same waffle recipe for over 25 years and it always gets rave reviews. You can top them with all your favorite things: sauteed apples, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, whipped cream, bananas, pecans, let your imagination run wild here! And then ENJOY!

HOMEMADE WAFFLES

2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 egg whites, beaten stiff

Heat waffle iron to med-high. In the meantime, in a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the 2 egg yolks and milk and whisk into the flour mixture. Stir to combine. Next, add the melted butter. Again, stir to combine. In a clean separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, and then fold gently into waffle batter. Pour 1 1/2 soup ladles of batter onto hot waffle iron and bake for 3 - 5 minutes or until desired crispiness is achieved.
Yield: 4 round waffles

*When I am making this for my family, I usually double the recipe.

These Waffles look great, I have not made waffles awhile but seeing these bring back happy memories of working in a restaurant kitchen and making them for our breakfast menu.Thanks

Starr, these sound delicious. My family would finish them in short order.I am new to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

They look and sound yummy! We used to have waffles for dinner almost every Sunday night. But then our waffle iron broke, and you know, they just don't make them like they used to! It's been a challenge finding one where the waffles were a good size and didn't stick to the iron.

Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Now *those* waffles look amazing! As soon as I get a waffle iron, I'm using this recipe.

Man, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.
