So, moms… get ready to memorize this waffle recipe by heart, and don’t get nervous because it’s merely a child’s play.
First, set all the tools needed:
- Mixing bowl and another bowl
- Spoon (for mixing)
- Measuring cup
Secondly, prepare all the necessary ingredients to avoid the hassle during cooking time. Here are the ingredients (be reminded that these are proper measurements):
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Chocolate syrup/Maple syrup and/or butter (to garnish)
- Fruits (are optional)
Thirdly, here are the steps to make your dream waffle realized:
- Whisk egg whites until frothy in one of the mixing bowls you already prepared.
- Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in the other bowl.
- In a measuring cup, mix the butter, milk and vanilla.
- Then mix the dry ingredients to the egg. After that, you can stir in the liquid ingredients. Now, make sure that all the ingredients have blended together.
- Preheat your waffle maker until it is ready. Pour in the mixture into the slots and let it cook which will take about 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove the waffles from the waffle maker and serve on plate.
- Know what? Besides chocolate syrup or maple syrup and/or butter, you can also garnish your delightful waffles with fruits to make your family’s breakfast healthier. (This makes 5-6 servings.)
Additional tips for organized and time-conscious moms:
- You can actually make your waffle batter ahead of time. You can prepare it before you sleep and just store it right inside your refrigerator. This can take up to a whole week.
- Left-over waffles can be sealed inside an airtight bag and stored in your fridge. Later, for snacks, you can reheat them and serve for your starving little moppets
So, there’s your magical recipe for easy, pressure-void and more delightful breakfast with your kids and husband. Warning: Be prepared for big orders, tight hugs, unstoppable ‘thank you’ kisses, heart-melting compliments and smiling faces from the rest of the family members. Good luck!
