Waffle with Strawberries

Breakfast is a very important meal of the day. During the week we prepare a good and healthy breakfast, but fast.  During the week-end life slows down and we do have time to treat ourselves to a more elaborate breakfast.  Now that school is out, here is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a great big breakfast more often.

The unanimous choice: Waffles. The below recipe is an adaptation from the Joy of cooking.  For us the amount of butter, 8 tablespoons, is perfect.  I have tried with less and with more, but 8 is where is at.  I do not like to let my waffle crisp too much.  Little butter spread on top is all we prefer.  We love maple syrup…

We served fresh strawberries with our waffles.


Enjoy!!

Today’s June 11, 2012 breakfast:

WAFFLES

1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar

½ teaspoon salt

3 large eggs, well beaten

8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 ½ cups whole milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Powder sugar

Preheat the waffle iron. In a large bowl add the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Mix well together.

In another bowl add the well beaten eggs, melted butter, vanilla extract and milk.

Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently whisk together well.

Spoon ½ cup in the center of the hot waffle iron, or amount recommended by manufacturer. Spread the batter ¼ away from the edge of the iron. Close the lid and cook until the waffle is nice and golden brown.  Serve with sprinkled powder sugar.

    Giddy-up! There’s nothing else that I like better than equal cut portions of delicious looking waffles such as these! Of course w/ mine…I’ll have some melted butter along with some maple syrup drizzled on them too! Fantastic job!

    OK I give in, your waffles look so good, I will just have to get a waffle iron (even though the last thing I need is yet another kitchen gizmo), looking on Amazon there seem to be masses to chose from, any recommendations? On my visits to North America waffles with crispy bacon and maple syrup were always a breakfast time favourite with that great combination of sweet and savoury; time to capture it for myself!

      Thank you I appreciate your kind words. I can definately agree with you on the gizmos… My waffle maker is from ” Chef’s Choice International” and it works like a charm. Not to big to store, and quite cost effective. I purchased it at Sur La Table years ago. Enjoy!!
      Have a great day. Giangi
