If you are lucky enough to own a good waffle iron, you are lucky enough! I threw out the first one I owned after college, because it was so stinking hard to clean. But the newer ones are very non-stick coated, plus you can spray them with cooking spray just for good measure. I actually inherited my current iron from a friend when she decided to upgrade. Add this great little recipe that makes exactly one round waffle, and you have all the makings of a tasty Sunday morning. Get out your syrup/ berries/ yogurt/ jam/ peanut butter/ ice cream/ fudge sauce/ peaches/ whipped cream/ chicken strips, because this is the perfect foil.
No sense in wasting time! Preheat your waffle iron. Spray with cooking spray before adding batter, if desired.
For the waffle batter, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, whisking to remove lumps. You can do this with a fork if you don’t own a whisk: just stir vigorously, using the fork against the side of the bowl to work out any lumps. When the iron is preheated (and optionally sprayed), add the batter, spreading it evenly. Close the iron and set your timer. (My waffles take about 3 minutes, but this will vary by machine.) Remove and enjoy– that’s it!
Note: I’ve tried adding solid mix-ins to the batter like blueberries or chocolate chips, but (of course) I don’t like cleaning the residue it leaves on the iron. If you don’t mind cleaning up after your add-ins, feel free to experiment. There are so many delicious options (Mr. L and Little S like sprinkles, fruit snacks, any berry, chocolate/ white/ butterscotch/ cinnamon chips– but they get to clean the iron. Sorry ♥)
On the other hand, adding herbs or spices to these waffles is great for the adventurous palette. I love to do cinnamon or cardamom waffles topped with cooked apples or pears, rosemary or basil waffles topped with berries and cream, and thyme waffles topped with lemon gelato. Start with about 1/8 teaspoon of minced/ground herb or spice and go up from there. Try it!
