With the long holiday weekend this week, why not give these quick and easy waffles a try one morning. There is no need for a waffle mix from the store when you have this simple recipe.
Here is what you need – flour, baking powder, salt, milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. In one bowl, you will whisk together the flour, baking, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, and vanilla. After that is whisked together, you will slowly add in the melted butter while whisking. Next you add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk together.
Now comes an important part of these quick and easy waffles. You are going to let the batter rest for 5 minutes. This will allow the baking powder to activate and the batter will become puffy. Don’t mix the batter after. Just scoop and add the batter to your waffle maker.
Top these waffles however you like them. There are so many ways to enjoy them, My kids like the combination of peanut butter and maple syrup or fresh fruit with whipped cream. I also have several recipes for syrups and waffles toppings too.
