I don’t know if you know this but I have the recipe for the best waffles ever. My kids love waffles. I guess who doesn’t. I usually make them for Saturday morning breakfast about every three weeks they love them so much. Sadly I don’t have time during the week to make the crispy goodnesses, so today I took the initiative and made a separate batch for the week and am going to freeze them. This way my kids can have something warm and crispy during the week for breakfast, just pop them in the toaster for a few minutes and viola warm, crispy waffles.
If you want a refresher of the recipe here it is.
Best Waffle Recipe Ever
Courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook
- 1 3/4 C. All Purpose flour
- 1 T. Baking Powder
- 1/4 t. Salt
- 1 T. Sugar (new addition, gives the waffles a slightly sweet flavor, not too much though)
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 3/4 C. Milk
- 1/2 C. cooking oil
- 2 egg whites
- 1 1/2 t. pure vanilla extract (new addition, gives it a good aroma mmmm…)
- In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Make a well in the center. In another bowl beat egg yolks slightly. Stir in milk, vanilla, and oil. Add egg yolk mixture all at once to the dry mixture. Stir just till moistened (should be lumpy).
- Now the important part. In a small bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight up). This may take a few minutes. Make sure you use beaters, its much easier this way than trying to whisk them by hand. Gently fold egg whites into flour and egg yolk mixture, leaving a few fluffs of egg white, DO NOT OVERMIX. And proceed to make your waffles, about a cup of mixture to make a waffle.
- To freeze them let them cool all the way on some cooling racks then transfer them to plastic bags and put directly in the freezer.
- To cook just pop one in the toaster and set it to medium to medium low time and toast. If you have a defrost option on your toaster, you can use that too.
