Sunday Morning Waffles

WafflesBreakfast is always a great time for my family, especially on the weekend. This is the time where we are never in too much of a rush and can enjoy the morning. In my kitchen, a warm breakfast is necessary on the weekends, and pretty much a given during the week days as well. Whether it is french toast, egg sandwiches with ham and cheese, omelets, or pancakes, something on this list is always being served.

I received a gift card to a local store several months ago, and my first instinct was to check out the kitchen area of the store. The card was only for thirty dollars, and in the kitchen area, that can be challenge. I was fortunate to browse without my kids, however they were definitely on my mind as I decided to purchase a waffle maker. My kids love waffles and with that said, it was my turn to take some of the money that I constantly spend on Eggo waffles, and make my own. The great thing is that you are able to freeze these if you make large batches and use them throughout the week!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 tbsp of baking powder
  • 4 tbsp melted butter, unsalted
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup of buttermilk

Feel free to double up on this dry mix to store some for the future.

WafflesWhen you are ready to make a batter, take about 4 tbsp of melted butter, along with 2 eggs, and 1/2 cup of buttermilk to these dry ingredients. This gets your waffle batter going. The cool thing about waffles is that they are pretty versatile and you can add a handful of ingredients to make them your own. For this particular batch, I used roughly 1/4 cup of raspberry jam.

Once you have your batter ready, heat your waffle iron, add the batter, and rotate every couple of minutes. You know when the waffles are done when they are golden brown. Keep in mind that your waffle iron will also come with automatic lights that will indicate when things are ready to go as well.

Top with your favorite fruit, syrup, powdered sugar, or heck, fried chicken! Enjoy.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
