There are a lot of different waffle recipes out there. Some are temperamental, and some have strange exotic ingredients in them. I, however, find that the simplest is the best (at least for me).
That being said, sometimes I like to get creative. Most recently, I noticed that I had a lot of buttermilk and whole wheat flour I had sitting around that were crying out to me to be used up, and this is what happened:
Basic Waffle Recipe: Tweaked / /
Mix in a large bowl:
- 2 eggs
1 c. milk1¼ c. buttermilk
- 3 Tbsp.
vegetable oilcold pressed extra virgin olive oil
Stir in and mix until blended:
1½ c. flour¾ c. all purpose flour & ¾ c. whole wheat flour 12 Tbsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. sugar
- ½ tsp. salt
Heat waffle iron, and brush it with butter or oil if necessary . Put in enough batter to just fill. Close and bake until steam stops and the waffles are crisp, tender, and brown.
They were light and delicious! A recipe tweak well played 🙂
