I don’t cook much.

OK, I really don’t cook at all.

BUT I can make a mean waffle.   Waffles at our house are a major food group.   They take special priority and can occasionally be found at the dinner table.

*gasp!*

It isn’t all bad.   The boys enjoy applesauce or a fruit topping on the first one and then the syrup comes out for all to enjoy.   They really are good.

Waffles on Plate

A few Christmases ago a family member gave us the fancy barnyard waffle maker.   I figure that protein is implied when the kids are eating cows and chickens.   The gift is well used.   It probably is used more than my oven.

The waffle recipe I use is originally from the Oster Belgian Waffle maker I received for my wedding 17 years ago.   I have tried a lot of other recipes, but this is by far my favorite:

LIGHT ‘N CRISP WAFFLES

2 egg yolks

2 cups milk

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup oil

2 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Preheat the waffle maker.   I separate the eggs placing the whites into a small mixing bowl and the yolks into a large mixing bowl.   I add all the other ingredients to the large mixing bowl.   I pull out my hand mixer and first whip up the eggs until fluffy.   Then mix the other ingredients with the hand mixer until they are combined.   I then fold in the egg whites with a spatula.

That is it!   Pour the batter into the waffle maker…

Mmmmmm.

Dinner? is served.*
