Hoping that someone can help me out.
I would like to give my 80 yr old mother a waffle iron for Christmas.
I have some misgivings since, at this point, she is only able to prepare VERY simple recipes. A commercial prepared mix will not work as the sodium content is high and this is something she worries about.
So, what I would like to do is provide her with a premade dry mix for the waffles. I would like to keep the wet ingredients very simple. She always keeps skim milk, egg beaters and canola oil on hand. I realize that with these requirements the waffles might not taste as good. Believe me, ease of preparation and healthiness are most important to her.
I found this recipe online. Dry ingredients:
3 1/2 cup(s) flour
1/4 cup(s) sugar
4 teaspoon(s) baking
2 teaspoon(s) baking soda
Heat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Place 1 cup mix in a medium mixing bowl. Beat 1 egg, 1 tablespoon melted butter, 3/4 cup buttermilk, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla together and stir into dry mix until just combined. Lightly oil the iron plates, add batter (waffle iron capacities vary), and cook until waffles are golden brown and crisp, about 5 minutes.
Makes four 5-inch square waffles.
Do you think this is a good recipe? Does anyone have any suggestions or better recipes??
Sorry for all of the constraints - she has become very picky.
Thanks so much!!!
