An Ocean of Waffles

Waffles 2a

Breakfast cravings can be difficult to deliver.  It’s early, you’re busy.  Who has time to make waffles on a regular workday?  My solution to this is to find a day that’s not as busy and make up a whole recipe of waffles and freeze them for those busy days!  I know, I know, you’re saying, “You can buy these in the store already frozen!”  But it’s hard to beat a homemade waffle that has egg whites beaten into it that make them light and fluffy!

This recipe is one I’ve made for years; it’s our very favorite.  My husband will even eat them plain!  They’re that good!  This made up an ocean of waffles; about 20 individual squares.  They smell so good you might have a hard time saving some for the freezer, but try to resist!  

Everyday Waffles

  • 1 34cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 34cups milk
  • 1cup cooking oil (I used 1/4)
  • 2 egg whites, beaten stiff

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  2. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks, slightly; stir in the milk, oil and the vanilla.
  3. Add the egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir until just moistened (the batter should still be slightly lumpy).
  4. Beat 2 egg whites until stiff.  Fold into batter, leaving some fluffs of egg.
  5. Pour 1 to 1 1/4 cups batter onto the grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle iron . Close the lid quickly and do not open until done.
  6. When done lift the waffles of the iron with a fork.
  7. Repeat the procedure with the remaining batter.

This breakfast is possible even on a busy day!  Pop a prepared waffle into the toaster to warm it up and top it with fresh strawberries and a little syrup!  Yum!

Layer these in Freezer bags with waxed paper in-between.  You’ll be able to take out one or two at a time without them sticking together!

Refresh your breakfast with homemade waffles!

With love from my country kitchen,
