My hens are in full on egg production and in trying to decide what to make for dinner tonight that used eggs I just happened to see in the back of my appliance pantry the waffle iron. I haven't used the waffle iron in years. I had some strawberries and whipped cream and decided that Belgian Waffles and poached eggs would make a dandy dinner for the Mister.
I love this recipe! The waffles are light and fluffy inside and just a wee bit crispy on the outside. The pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg and vanilla create a delightful waffle.
Belgian Waffles Recipe
- 2 cups of flour
- 4 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs (separated)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- tiny pinch of cinnamon
- tiny pinch of nutmeg
- Sift the flour, baking powder, salt sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a large bowl
- In a separate bowl, separate the egg whites and beat until stiff peaks form.
- In another separate bowl, mix together the egg yolks, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir to combine.
- Add the dry ingredients to the egg yolk/milk mixture and mix well.
- Fold in the egg whites
- Cook in waffle iron on medium-high heat for 5 or 6 minutes. Waffle irons may vary so judge your cooking time to your own waffle iron.
Yield: 5 or 6 large waffles.
Note: I used approximately 3/4 cup of batter for each waffle.
Until next time,
