My 23-year old brother is a surprisingly good gifter. Every Christmas and birthday, I intentionally don’t give him any gift ideas because he does so well when left to his own devices. And this Christmas, per usual, he delivered. He got me a WAFFLE MAKER.
This weekend, I made my maiden batch. I don’t want to toot my own horn here, but it was an epic success.
To be honest, the recipe is just good. I’ve had better waffles in restaurants, but this was a great beginner recipe that would be a good springboard for things like chocolate chip waffles, cinnamon waffles, or even chocolate waffles.
I preheated the waffle iron, grabbed a whisk, and got to work.
I beat 2 eggs, and 1/2 a cup of vegetable oil with 2 cups of all-purpouse flour and 1 3/4 cups milk. Then added 1 tablespoon of sugar, 4 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
Then I scooped about a cup at a time of the batter into the waffle iron. I trusted the little green light on the waffle iron to tell me when it was done. It made about 4 waffles.
I was thrilled with how beautifully they came out. They were light and spongey and they soaked up the syrup beautifully.
