Classic Waffles

I haven't posted since Thursday because my mom was here for the weekend! She came down from Connecticut to meet her new grandpuppy and to visit us. We went out to dinner on Friday (sushi) and Saturday (IHOP), but I thought it would be fun to have waffles before she left this morning to drive back up to Connecticut.

This recipe was posted on the CLBB but apparently came from AllRecipes originally. It was touted as being the best waffle recipe of all time.

Maybe not of all time, but it really was a very delicious, perfect, plain waffle. If you're not wanting something with fruit or chocolate chips, this is the waffle for you. Although you could totally toss in chocolate chips or top it with fruit or do whatever you want. It's versatile. It came together quickly, cooked wonderfully, and was delicious. Yum yum! Perfect Sunday breakfast. Definitely a make-again.

This picture looks like every other waffle photo.

Classic Waffles

4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 eggs
1 ½ cups warm milk
1/3 cup butter, melted

1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside. Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature.

2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; beat until blended.

3. Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Serve immediately.
