When I think of weekend morning happiness, the first thing that comes to mind is a good breakfast. Every time I make waffles, happiness emanates through the air along with that welcoming, warm, fresh waffle smell that gently lingers through the entire house. It’s truly a beautiful composition, the batter ready, the waffle maker steaming, fruits and toppings all washed and ready to be devoured. The teapot warming up as delightful french cafe music plays in the background. Never mind the dishes, even that is a part of everything coming together beautifully!
I am craving more waffles just thinking about this! If you have a waffle maker, I would get started on this waffle recipe right away! If you do not, I believe they are a good investment considering the vast price ranges available for waffle makers. The one I use in this one which I purchased several years ago. I have made these waffles countless times and it was savored each time with enough leftovers for the next day. I like toasting the leftovers the following day and eating them plain, or with berries and nutella.
A little tip about the batter, do not over mix. It is completely okay if your waffle batter is lumpy, in fact, for this recipe it is preferred. Also, remember to have fun and don’t worry too much about the shape of your waffles, or whether one of them came out under or over cooked. All of that can happen and that’s okay, because that’s how we learn. 🙂 My other favorite secret (not so secret) tip is that I use a skewer stick to take the waffles out. They seem to be the easiest and quickest tools and I won’t use anything else. I hope you make these and let me know how the process went. I hope it brings you the same joy it brings me whenever I make it.
|Prep Time: 5 minutes||Cook Time: 30 minutes|
|Serves: 11-12 waffles||Total Time: 35 minutes|
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
4 tbsp melted and cooled butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. In a medium bowl, whisk dry ingredients together. (These are my go to bowls)
2. In another medium bowl, whisk together eggs, melted butter, vanilla extract and milk.
3. Create a a well in the center of your dry ingredients, and slowly pour in your wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. (Do not over mix)
4. Turn waffle maker on to desired temperature (I like to use medium high) and wait for the ready light to turn on.
5. Pour 1/4 cup batter and let it bake until ready light turns on again.
6. Use a skewer stick or a fork to take the waffles out, place on wire racks one by one.next to each other.
* Tip * Do not stack ready waffles on top of each other straight out the oven, the steam from the waffles will make them soggy. The waffles cool down best when immediately set on a wire rack for about 5 minutes.
