WafflesPosted: May 24, 2011
These are a very simple and very gratifying comfort food. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, good waffles are a great way to fill an empty tummy.
2 cups of flour
1/2 t. salt
1 T. brown sugar
4 t. baking powder
1/2 cup (one stick) of melted butter
1 3/4 cup of whole milk
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together. (Generally when baking anything, this is a good first step), then to the bowl add the eggs, butter, and milk and whisk until smooth.
Pour into a hot (HOT) waffle iron.
One mistake people seem to make with waffles, pancakes, even meats is to attempt to bake or cook them in a cool or warm skillet. The hot skillet, or waffle iron, will seal the outside of the food and help to keep it moist. It will also make pancakes and waffles less likely to stick and fall apart and keep your meats fresh and moist rather than tough and dry.
Once the waffle is cooked through, pull it and top with butter, syrup and fresh fruit. I like blueberries.
