A random recipe
So, when I wrote about pancakes, my friend Brett wanted to know a good waffle recipe in which each waffle didn’t weigh a thousand pounds.
So I did what any self-respecting wife and mother would do. I asked my mother.
Here’s her answer:
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
2 eggs, separated
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
2 tsp. baking powder
4 Tbsp. oil or melted butter
Sift flour, salt and baking powder together. In a large bowl beat the egg yolks and add milk and shortening. Add flour mixture and beat until smooth. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter. Bake in hot waffle iron.
Mom says: “If necessary, tell him he can add more milk. The easier way is just to use Aunt Jemima Pancake mix and add more milk (or water) than called for. I make the batter rather thin for pancakes or waffles, so they’re not so heavy.”
I love her waffles and pancakes, so I think you should definitely try this out.
PS: Do you know what I think waffles are best used for? A vehicle for ice cream.
