It’s Sunday morning and I’m making waffles. If your house is like mine, everyone wants a different kind of waffle. Plain, blueberry, pecan…this easy adaptable recipe will make everyone happy – especially the cook.
Makes 12 waffles. Equipment needed: a waffle iron.
1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbs. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1 and 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup cooking oil (walnut or canola)
bacon cooked and crumbled
Heat the waffle iron. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl combine the eggs, oil and milk. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry to make a batter.
Pour batter onto waffle iron (I use a ladle to make things easy). Top the waffle batter with crumbled bacon and pecans. Close lid and cook until toasty brown. (My waffle iron has a light that goes out when they are cooked.)
Serve with a pad of butter and maple syrup.
Plays well with others: These freeze really well. Just pull out the frozen waffle and pop it in a toaster. This is the only way my family gets waffles on a weekday!
Top the waffle batter with anything you want – blueberries, strawberries (try strawberries and chopped almonds), nuts, bananas, etc.
For a fun dessert heat two waffles and serve with ice cream in between like a sandwich. I’ll confess, this is sometimes breakfast too at our house!
