Today happens to be my grand son’s birthday. His one request last night was – “Please make waffles from scratch” This is an old recipe that I have been making for years. Everyone in the family loves it with melted butter and syrup, but personally I like it savoury, so I added finely chopped tomatoes, onion flakes and cheese. Once it was done, I drizzled it with the Peruvian Aji Sauce I had posted last week!!Totally yumcious!!
3 eggs beaten lightly
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup veg or canola oil
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour( I used King Arthur)
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Mix the first three liquids together.
In another bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together. Using a whisk, beat in the liquid into the dry ingredients. Whisk lightly for 1 minute or so. Do not over whisk as the waffle tends to get rubbery. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat up the waffle maker. When ready, pour in the liquid waffle and cover and cook.
Serve with melted butter and syrup or honey. Enjoy
Like I mentioned above, I like my waffles savoury, so I add the following on top of the liquid waffle in the waffle maker – finely chopped tomatoes, onion flakes and any cheese you like( I like sharp cheddar or pepper jack). The combinations are limitless
Other combinations –
Ham & cheese
Tomatoes, chillies and cilantro
Mashed bananas, 1 tbsp lemon juice and 2 tbsp sugar
Chopped mangoes/ strawberries/ any fruits – fresh or frozen
Chopped pecans/ cashews/ walnuts mixed with 2 tbsp sugar
Whatever your imagination can take you to!!
