One thing I love doing on the weekend is making a big breakfast. The week days are usually something quick and easy so I like to make a bigger deal of it on the weekend.
My downfall about the weekends is there’s usually more going on so I didn’t pay attention to the recipe as I was making them. I didn’t beat the egg whites to a stiff peak, which the note in the book says makes the waffles have a nice crunch to them. Either way it still tasted good. Hubby likes them flavored so we just topped ours with some extra fruit.
Mama’s Homemade Waffles
(Adapted from Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood)
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, separated
1 ½ cups milk
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Beat the egg whites until stiff. Set aside. (I didn’t pay attention to this and just beat them a little.)
Beat the egg yolks. Add the milk and butter.
Add the flour mixture, stirring until just blended.
Fold in the beaten egg whites.
Bake in a hot waffle maker that has been sprayed with cooking spray for about 5 minutes, until golden brown.
Serve immediately with hot maple syrup, melted butter, honey or jam.
