Waffles are when you want to step up your game from simple pancakes. Yes, you do need a special pan but you can pick one up for around $30 and once you pour the batter, you let the pan do the rest while you work on other things. The big thing that Waffles have over pancakes is that they get slightly crispy on the outside so they don’t get soggy with the syrup and butter yet they have little pockets to hold the yummy goodness.
These use a lot of baking powder and that’s what gives them the fluffiness you know and love but keep
Mise En Place
- Mixing bowl
- Waffle Iron
- Rubber spatula
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups of Milk
- 1/2 cup of veg oil
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar
- 2 cups of flour
- 3 teaspoons of baking POWDER
- 1/2 Tablespoon Salt
- 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
Method of Preparation
- Mix the ingredients in the order listed.
- Make sure to scrape the side of the bowl and add the flour slowly so that you don’t get lumps.
- Follow the instructions on your waffle iron and remember that the batter will expand and spill out.
- If you’re going to get a waffle maker, spend the extra $20 and get the kind that makes two at a time because no one eats just one waffle.
- As always, this is more or less a blank slate recipe but you can always add your own various fruit compote or extracts to the mix.
- Now, this isn’t traditional but the way I make my Chicken n Waffles is I take my basic wings and dip them into the waffle batter and then deep fry them. This is good, you want to make this, trust me.
