So last Sunday, we tried out our first batch of homemade waffles. I’ll just say that I couldn’t make them fast enough! Everyone loved them…and they just kept asking for more! I was lucky enough to be able to sit down and eat the last two for my own breakfast.
I found a recipe on Recipezaar that I toyed with and made my own. We have made them 2 Sundays in a row and have really enjoyed them both times. I am thinking it is going to become a Sunday tradition…
I guess I’ll be going out to buy my own waffle maker this week…thank you Betsy for the loaner!
Recipe from Aggie’s Kitchen
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup turbinado sugar (or regular sugar)
3 TB baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups lowfat buttermilk (can substitute lowfat milk)
1/3 cup applesauce
2 TB flax meal
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Add buttermilk, eggs, applesauce and flax meal to the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Pour approximately 1/3 cup of the batter per waffle into the waffle maker and cook according to waffle maker directions.
Serve with a small bit of butter, maple syrup and fruit.
