Months ago, I shared a waffle recipe. But since then, I've discovered an amazing one on allrecipes.com. Click here for the original (Waffles 1).
Here's the way I made them...
2 eggs (I used All Whites liquid egg whites, whipped until frothy)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups milk (I used buttermilk)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat waffle iron. I use a small Belgian waffle maker that only makes one at a time. But they're nice and thick.
Beat eggs (or in my case, egg whites) in large bowl with hand beater until fluffy. (I used my stand mixer with the whisk.)
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, buttermilk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla, just until smooth. Then either add to the egg whites and whip in the stand mixer or fold the egg whites into the other ingredients. I've done it both ways, and both work fine.
Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. Serve hot.
|They're almost never perfect. But always taste good no matter what shape!|
Now, here's the fun part. :) My daughter has been craving bacon waffles, which she dreamed up. So, figuring that's a stroke of genius (I mean, isn't EVERYTHING better with bacon??), I grabbed some of the bacon I'd cooked and crumbled it (well, it wasn't crispy, so I actually tore it).
Then I pushed the bits into the batter before I closed the waffle iron.
And voila! Bacon waffles!
Or you can just enjoy your bacon (soy bacon for our vegetarians) on the side like I did. :)
Enjoy with melting butter and syrup. I use sugar-free syrup, and it's just as good. Well almost...
