Waffles are a great way to begin the day. The best waffles are the homemade ones. They are quite simple to make, and all you need are a few common ingredients and of course a waffle iron. The toppings can be simple like maple syrup to fancy such as fruit and nuts.
A simple homemade waffle recipe
Two eggs separated, first beat the egg whites stiff and set them aside
Turn on your waffle iron so it is getting warm.
In a mixing bowl, pour the following ingredients
2 cups Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
Mix your dry ingredients well.
Add in the egg yolks
2 cups milk
1/3 cup oil
Once batter is mixed, fold in the egg whites gently.
Now go ahead, pour a ladle full of batter into your waffle iron, and allow them to cook. This recipe will make about a dozen waffles. If there are leftovers simply, pop them in the freezer until they are needed.
As far as the flour goes, you can use white or wheat. Some people prefer using the white all-purpose flour only. You can also add a cup each of white and wheat flour, this will give you more fiber. This is a great way to sneak extra fiber into our diets.
If you wish to add fruit such as blueberries or raspberries feel free to add them in the mixing step. You can also toss in chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or crushed nuts into the mixing step as well.
