Weekend WafflesPosted: June 27, 2011
What else is there to do on a when you wake up to a rainy Saturday morning but make a decadent breakfast? This past weekend we (I) whipped out the belgium waffle iron so that I could try my hand at a super recipe from the King Arthur website. The recipe could not be simpler, and with a few healthy tweaks not so bad for you either. That is before drowning them in maple syrup and butter. Oh well, win some you lose some right? These waffles are light and fluffy and wonderful.
Makes 3 Belgiums
1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Sea Salt
1 1/2 Cups Milk of Choice ( I used almond)
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
2 Tbsl Maple Syrup
1 Egg (I used a flax egg to up the Omega 3’s. Mix 1 Tbsl ground flax-seed and 2 Tbsl warm water)
Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet in a separate bowl. Mix everything together, batter will be slightly lumpy and that is just fine. Cook according the waffle iron’s instructions and enjoy!
