Easy Homemade WAFFLES...

Monday, January 23, 2012


I found this recipe over on my friend Lorraine's blog a few weeks ago.
She always has delicious recipes and the most beautiful photos
that encourage you to try her recipe.

In the past whenever I would make waffles, I would use Bisquick.

Not that there's anything wrong with Bisquick.
Besides using it for waffles, I've also used it for pancakes, drop biscuits
and even for a crustless quiche from time to time.

However, have you seen the price of Bisquick lately? 

So when I saw Lorraine's recipe, I had to give it a try.
And I'm so happy I did.
These waffles were the lightest and fluffiest and most delicious I've ever had.
Yes, even better than Eggo.


2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups milk
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. Beat eggs in large bowl with hand beater until fluffy. 
Beat in flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla, just until smooth.
Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. 

Pour mix onto hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown...

Don't forget a little butter and syrup...

So easy and they were ready in just a few minutes.
We had leftovers!
So I placed them in a freezer bag and popped them in the freezer.
During the week, I removed a few and placed in the right into the toaster for fresh
homemade, delicious waffles for breakfast on a busy morning.

Enjoy your day!
