Everyone should own a waffle iron. If you do not have one, make a goal for yourself to get one by next weekend. The waffle iron I have was a gift from my mom, I’m not sure what brand it is, but it works great and makes amazing waffles. And the best part is, it’s heart shaped! Super cute and perfect for me. Since I have become a stay-at-home mom, I make breakfast for my family almost every weekend and waffles are a simple, quick and delicious meal. Plus, you can add cinnamon, chocolate chips, blueberries, bananas and so much more depending on tastes. Here we go…
What you need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1/3 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
(This recipe makes about 10 waffles and can easily be halved)
Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature.
To make the batter:
In a large bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar and set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Pour this mixture into the flour mixture and beat until combined.
Ladle the batter (about a 1/3 cup depending on iron size) into the preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup (as pictured, I served with chopped walnuts and sliced banana). Enjoy!
