This Waffle is pretty Corny!


I have a book club that I belong to. We don't actually read books anymore! We used to. Now we get together for lunch once a month and we talk. We talk about anything and everything, nothing is off limits and there are no judgments (well, at least I don't feel any! ;-) One of the other Women in the group is also a foodie - in fact, she's probably more hardcore than I am. I have great respect for Ahea the kitchen goddess. She's a great source of knowledge and inspiration. For example, Ahea is the one who converted me to 'the best' quality vanilla forever... never going back. Ahea is the first person I met who made cookies that weren't just drop cookies (my favourite to date as you can tell by the posts) and hand decorated all of them... they looked perfect! I was in shock!


Today, being a book club day, we were sitting in the resto and I was telling my two friends how much my ridiculous/awesome Wafflemaker has been changing my life. Here's how the conversation continued (paraphrased!)

Ahea - So, how many recipes have you tried so far?

Wanda - One

Ahea - Didn't the wafflemaker come with some recipe ideas?

Wanda - Yeah

Ahea - Why don't you try another one?

Wanda - Because the buttermilk one blew my mind.

Ahea - I've got a couple of really good ones for you. These might blow your mind.


This very afternoon, after I getting home from the resto (and a pit stop at Godiva!) this recipe was waiting in my 'inbox'. The cool thing about this one is that it has cornmeal in it. Ahea has assured my that it won't taste like cornbread because that was my first thought. Admittedly, even cornbread when doused with Maple Syrup couldn't be that bad! The other cool thing about this recipe is that you literally dump every ingredient listed below into a blender and then you turn the blender on for a few minutes and then you make waffles. RIDICULOUSLY easy, m'peeps. I mean, come on - when does that ever happen in the kitchen. Not only was it crazy easy but it tasted great too. I totally got more than 8 waffles (I have written a doubled recipe below so it's totally easy to half this one) and they were crispy on the outside and fluffy an d perfect on the inside... Oh YEAH! These ones aren't going to last long... Thanks Ahea!!!


Blender Cornmeal Waffles
makes about 8 waffles (about 12 if you are me)

2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I'm wondering if I could use melted butter in future)
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
4 tbsp Cornmeal
4 tbsp baking powder
4 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat Waffle maker (I use '3' on mine).
Place all ingredient in a blender, cover and process at med-hi (I used 'mix' on mine) until dry
ingredients are moistened (I put in all the wet ingredients first and added the dry ingredients last - that way dry stuff wouldn't get caught at the bottom of the blender).
Do not overblend.

I let the batter sit for about 5 - 7 minutes before starting to use it (basically as long as it took for the Waffle Maker to heat up).
Use about a 1/2 cup of batter per waffle.
