I’m making these for supper per child request. Two of my kids love breakfast for supper, and it’s been a while since we’ve had waffles.
I found this recipe for waffles on AllRecipes.com more than five years ago and it’s my go-to recipe. I don’t make any other waffle recipes. It’s easy and delicious, which is what I need. I love that I can make this for the girls and keep it lactose-free for my middle daughter too just by using her Lactaid milk. I do like to clabber the milk with some lemon juice.
I suspect that these can easily be made gluten-free for those who have Celiac Disease. I actually just found a gluten-free cooking blog called Gluten Free Cooking School (ckick here) and she actually has a recipe for gluten free flour mix (click here) that she uses for pancakes.
(Jessica, found on AllRecipes)
Makes 9-10 med-large waffles
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
6 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted butter
2 eggs, separated
Preheat waffle iron. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk, oil and egg yolks until mixture is smooth. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold egg whites into batter.
Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden; serve hot.
Jessica’s Notes: Added 1 TB sugar to flour mixture; reviews of the recipe on AllRecipes suggested 3 TB sugar + 1 tsp of vanilla to sweeten up waffles but 1 TB was delicious & still appropriate for the waffles to be either savory or sweet.
EDIT: These really are great waffles. I’ve blogged about them twice now.
