Since we are traveling to visit my mother-in-law today, I really didn't feel like cooking and cleaning up a big meal last night. (Read: I procrastinated on the laundry and packing again.) Time for breakfast for dinner.
When I first got this waffle iron I used to use a mix, but then I found an easy recipe that works quite well. The last time I made waffles for the kids, the girls proclaimed that I make the BEST waffles, and Chloe added, "You should work at Waffle House. They're hiring." LOL Obviously she had been reading the sign outside the Waffle House.
When I do waffles, I want quick and easy. None of that business of separating the egg yolks from the whites for me. And beating the whites to fold into the batter? No. Just no.
I'm not sure where I found this recipe. When I googled the name, there was a ton of sites that came up, all with similar (if not identical) recipes.
Oh Boy! Waffles
2 1/4 c. sifted all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoons salt
2 beaten eggs
2 1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup vegetable oil
Preheat waffle iron. Stir together dry ingredients. Combine eggs, milk, and oil, and add to dry ingredients just before baking, stirring only until moistened and fully incorporated. Batter will be thin. (Lumps are okay). Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Bake in preheated waffle iron.
Makes 8 to10 waffles (or six on my iron)
Let me emphasize: SPRAY WAFFLE IRON WITH COOKING SPRAY. I was out of spray once, and tried brushing vegetable oil on the waffle iron instead. There was a huge mess, followed by massive and frustrating clean up. There were tears involved. Oi!
