Quick and Easy Weekend Brunch: Waffles!

On Saturday morning, I was in the mood for waffles but didn’t feel like actually leaving my apartment, waiting for a table, or paying for anything since I have the ingredients at home. My mom bought me a waffle maker (because that is obviously a kitchen gadget you need…especially in NYC) and it was actually on the top shelf in my kitchen, but I pulled it out and got to work. I found a basic waffle recipe from a little Thomas Keller handout from Williams-Sonoma and basically followed the recipe (I didn’t use an entire stick of butter because I figured that would just be overkill).

Ingredients:

2-1/4 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 stick butter, melted, then cooled
2 cups warm whole milk (I used 2% because that’s all I had in my fridge)
2 tsp. vanilla extract (sent over by the wonderful reps from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas)
3 eggs

Mix all dry ingredients together like so:

You’re supposed to separate the eggs so the egg whites form soft peaks, but I just wasn’t in the mood so I just whisked them all together:

Now add the eggs to the flour, sugar, salt mixture:

And add the butter:

Stir well!! The batter was pretty thick and I placed it on the waffle iron for about 5 minutes – look at the waffle creation I made:

And the perfect bite:

What do you have for weekend brunches? I love waffles, eggs, bacon, and anything sweet (which might explain my love for Norma’s)

Have a great weekend!

Reader Comments

After reading your waffle and pasta a la carbonara entries back-to-back, I’m noticing a pattern of you refusing to separate your eggs when instructed to do so. Maybe you should recognize this, ummm, slight fault and do the recipes again and tell us if it actually made a difference! Just a thought. :)

Curious there is no baking power or soda in this recipe?
