Waffles


Growing up, I never thought that waffles could be made at home. I knew nothing about waffle irons or waffle batter. I knew how to go to the refrigerator isle in the store and choose between plain, blueberry, or strawberry. Now, I make waffles every other weekend. I love waffles, and they are so diverse. I've made waffles with brown sugar and cinnamon, banana, walnuts, chocolate chips, and buttermilk. Oddly enough, my favorite is whole wheat; it is healthy, but I love the taste. When I make waffles everyone's happy.

WHOLE WHEAT WAFFLES
serving: 10 waffles

2 eggs
1 ¾ cups milk
½ cup vegetable oil
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt

Heat waffle iron.  Beat eggs until fluffy; beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth. Pour batter from cup or pitcher onto center of hot waffle iron. Bake until steaming stops, about 5 minutes. Remove waffle carefully.
