Waffles, waffles and more waffles
The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook Copyright 1999
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon salt
1 ½ tablespoons sugar I used 2-3 tablespoons
2 large eggs, beaten
2 ½ cups milk
¾ cup vegetable oil
Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine eggs, milk, and oil; add to flour mixture, stirring with a wire whisk just until dry ingredients are moistened. Cook in preheated, oiled waffle iron until golden.
Yield: 22 4-inch waffles
These were really, really good waffles but I wouldn't want to get into the habit of making these all of the time, since they use only white flour and a lot of oil. Although this recipe really did make at least 22 waffles. I wasn't even done making them when I took this picture.
I added a smidgen more sugar because I like waffles a bit sweet so I could skip the syrup. That's probably not fair because I ate one waffle plain and my husband will eat the only 20-something waffles with syrup but, hey, I'm the cook.
Blast From The Past: Baked Chicken With Honey And Mustard from May 2006. We had this last night. It's very good.
Question of the Day: When was the last time that you ate a waffle?
