I always wanted a waffle maker.
Last Christmas, after years of wanting to buy one but deciding not to EVERY TIME, I finally got my waffle maker. It was in a White Elephant gift exchange, no less. I brought it home and was eager to try it. The waffles did not disappoint. The only problem I see with the waffle maker is it only makes one waffle at a time. Yes, seems obvious, but I had never thought of it. When you are trying to make enough waffles for a hungry family, time is of the essence. I just need to plan better, I suppose.
Per children's request, we have made chocolate chip, plain, fruit topped and blueberry waffles. Oh, yum. We have tried a couple of different recipes, but this one is the winner and most requested. Give homemade waffles a try. I mean, imagine your family's reaction if you put that waffle pictured above in front of them. Pure glee I tell you. You made Super Mom status tonight.
1 3/4 cup flour
1 T baking powder
1 3/4 milk (or half water and half milk)
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
In a bowl, add flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In another bowl, beat eggs slightly. Stir in milk, oil and vanilla. Add wet ingredients all at once to dry ingredients. Stir, but don't over mix. Pour 1 cup batter onto waffle maker. Bake according to the instructions with your waffle maker.
*If you want to add blueberries or chocolate chips, add them after you stir the wet and dry ingredients together.
