Father’s Day is coming up soon and I think I’m going to make these for Mark, if he’s up to eating that particular day!
I bought myself a waffle maker for Christmas 2 years or so ago, maybe it was 3 years ago … and I also remember that someone else in the house had bought one too! Being that mine had been a dirt cheap, black Friday steal, I made the other person take theirs back! I had no need for two, you know??
We made a few oddball things and nothing really impressed us at the end of the day … the grilled cheese sandwiches were ok, and them hash browns took FOREVER to cook and just was not worth it!
But these waffles? ABSOLUTELY A MUST! For a while there, I made these every Sunday morning for a whole month … at long last, I had found something to use up the flour I had in the pantry … the first few waffles I made had me backing away from the belgium waffle … they puff up really fast and then the thing started whistling … just the steam escaping but after the first two waffles, I realized to put just a tad less batter in the waffle iron!
Go buy yourself an extra dozen eggs this week so you can make these, ok?
Don’t cut corners with certain ingredients … in this case, the butter and syrup. I buy mine at Costco and find it’s way cheaper and better quality than what you can buy at your regular grocery store … just sayin.
The original recipe comes from Yammie’s Noshery … and well, what can I say … anyone from the Midwest is A-ok in my eyes 😉 I did a few things differently, primarily, reduced the amount of sugar a bit as I found the original recipe was way too sweet for us since we don’t eat a whole lot of super sweet things (HA! Had you fooled, for a minute there didn’t I?) in the morning!
Here’s what you need to make about TWELVE really yummy waffles (if you don’t eat them all today, you have an easy way out for breakfast tomorrow OR dinner tonight:
12 eggs. Yes TWELVE. I know, the whole dozen. UNLESS you use EXTRA LARGE eggs (from Costco, where else?) then use TEN. Still alot, I know, but it’s worth it!
2/3 cups canola oil
2 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar (IF you like yours sweeter, up it a little)
4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tbs baking powder
Mix all your wet ingredients and sugar in large bowl, whisk to make sure all is combined.
Add flour, salt and baking powder in separate bowl, stir to mix well.
Tip: Write the expiration date of the baking soda on the lid so you always know it’s alive and well!
Pour the dry ingredients in to the wet ingredients and stir well … I say don’t over stir as you will have tough waffles and that defeats the whole purpose here!
Turn on your waffle iron to high and let it heat up til ready. Once heated, add batter to the iron and close, follow the directions of your particular iron. Note, don’t over fill, but don’t under fill, either. Such a fine line 🙂
Once done, pull out the waffle, drop on a plate, slather with a little butter and some real maple syrup and be prepared to say “ummm….yummmm” Enjoy!
