I'm Waffling just a bit...


It came. I finally clicked my way completely through an Amazon order and it has already arrived.
I could hardly wait to rip it open yesterday and open my new.... WAFFLE IRON!!! I know... isn't everyone supposed to get one when they get married? We did not. Although, since the wedding occurred almost 14 years ago I don't know if it would be doing me any good even if we had gotten one (just so that you don't feel we were complete cheated, you should know that we did receive a toaster).

I'm thrilled. The Waffle Iron has been sitting on the counter, ready to be used since yesterday. It's waiting patiently but I am not. I've already got my first recipe ready to go thanks to The Wednesday Chef. After much research, this one looks just interesting enough. I don't want to get too crazy with my first attempt AND I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to some things... pancakes and waffles are just those kinds of things (and chocolate too, but that's another story). I have the strawberries all ready to go and could even whip up some cream if it seems like that 'should' happen with the waffles.


We've all got our friday off so the whole fam' is chomping at the bit to dig into some fresh waffles. I'm itching to see if I can make these things look like they do in all the pictures! Fingers crossed....

Waffles with Maple Syrup
via The Wednesday Chef via julia Moskins

2 eggs
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp brown sugar (it calls for light but I only had dark brown sugar and it worked fine)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt (I use sea salt)
butter for the grill (although it says that mine doesn't need any)

Heat grill.
In a bowl mix together all the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and set the bowl aside.

In another bowl, whisk the eggs, buttermilk and melted butter together and add to the dry ingredients. Whisk until smooth. Allow the batter to rest for a few minutes before cooking (I actually waited to heat up the grill until the batter was mixed and that waiting time for the grill to heat up was also my waiting time for the batter - perfect).
Ladle about a 1/3 of a cup of the mixture onto the heated grill and cook until golden. (This waffle iron literally beeps when the waffle is ready - how great is that???)
I served mine with Maple Syrup (really it has to be Maple Syrup - table syrup is just not ever the same) and strawberries for those that wanted.


People really!! Why did no one ever tell me that this stuff was absolutely divine. This beats the H#%* out of pancakes... light, airy, these things absolutely melted in our mouths AND the waffle maker made it pretty much pain free. I'm hooked, totally hooked!!!!!
Yeah for fridays off!!!!

Yup!!! Amazon $50 bucks!!! So worth it. didn't need butter in the grill, it tells you when it's done and you just lift it out! THE BEST EVER!!!! Do it, you won't be disappointed. We all want waffles again tomorrow... hehehe.

Nice golden coloring on the waffles.

Crystal has been using one for quite some time and every Saturday morning the kids make the same request "Wapples" (as said by Jude)
