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).
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)
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!
