Great Waffle Recipe

I've been trying to perfect a waffle recipe for awhile...think I got it down!!! This is for all of my DC breakfast pals!!!

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk or buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Butter and syrup, for serving




In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix well. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes.

Preheat a waffle iron. Make sure you use very little non-stick spray on the waffle iron; the oil in the batter will help allow the waffle to release easily. Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles. Serve immediately with butter and syrup.

crewsk...it really depends on the size of your Waffle Iron, I have a smaller waffle iron with 2 small waffle grids. If you have the book to your iron use their recommended amounts.

When I made this recipe other day...I made about (5)1/3 cup batches of waffles...so it makes about 10 smaller waffles and 1 2/3 cups of batter in total.

Hope I answered some questions!!!

Just a quick tip. Like pancakes, cakes, and other quickbreads, there are a thousand valid recipes that will give you great results. I'm certainly not going to say any one of them is better than another. And Eric, yours looks wonderful. My tip is that you must not ever stack waffles as they release steam after being removed from the iron. Also, if they are imediately plated, the steam from under them has nowhere to escape to and can result in soggy waffles. To ensure crisp waffles, place the freshly cooked product on a wire rack for about thirty seconds to allow the steam to escape. The outside will be crisp, with a light and tender inside.

I sove waffles and have a couple of great recipes that I too use all the time. But my waffle iron went daput. I am going to have to purchasse another one soon. In the meantime, eat some of Eric's waffles for me.:)

'more healthy??'

Sorry about misspelling your name Erik. My youngest son's name is Eric and that's how I'm used to spelling it.
