Basic Waffles

DSC_0157My 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.
