For those still getting to know me, there are three things you can count on. I'm either working on a restoration and/or paint flip, gardening, or cooking. This blog opens up an opportunity to learn more about me and I get to share some great experiences with you. In future blogs, expect to read about projects in greater depth and some tasty recipes. When the gardening season arrives I'll be sharing tips on my favorite veggies and how to have a successful harvest. But for now, I want to share this delicious waffle recipe with you!
I've made this waffle recipe dozens of times and it's still not old. Yes, that's a lot of waffles but once you make them you'll see why! I currently use a single-flip waffle maker (I believe the brand is Faberware). Nothing fancy, but it does the job and creates those large deep-pocketed waffles we all love. This waffle maker creates restaurant-type waffles that are the size of dinner plates. Yes, please!
You'll need a (medium to large) mixing bowl, measuring cups, measuring spoons, and a whisk. This waffle mix lasts in your fridge for about 3 days so you can prepare ahead of time. Just make sure to keep the mixture covered, and give it a stir before making your waffles.
In a (medium to large) mixing bowl add the following ingredients:
2 - cups of all-purpose white flour
4 - teaspoons of baking powder
1 - teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of white sugar
Give these dry ingredients a quick stir with the whisk and then add wet ingredients on top.
1 and 3/4 cup of milk (I normally use 2%)
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
2 - large eggs
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
Now, combine all ingredients with the same whisk you mixed the dry ingredients with. I’ve made these waffles many times and I’ve tried many ways of adding these ingredients. This is the best order of things and makes for fewer dishes.
At this point, you’re ready to start adding the batter to the waffle maker! This is the best part because the cinnamon takes over and fills the room. The best thing about breakfast food is the smell it makes!
There are many ways to top your waffles but we stay traditional. A simple syrup, butter, and a side of bacon or sausage is a delicious combo. I hope you enjoy this homemade waffle mix. It’s a staple in our home! Enjoy!
