Today is my husband’s 30th birthday. That’s right– the big 3 – 0. As is now custom on birthday mornings, I made him breakfast. Today’s menu was waffles, coffee, strawberries, and bacon…oh, and Thera-flu. He’s been a little sick.
Waffles (adapted from Better Homes & Gardens)
1 3/4 C. Flour
2 T. Sugar
1 T. Baking Powder
1 pinch Salt
1 3/4 C. Milk
1/2 C. Oil
1 tsp. Vanilla
Heat waffle iron (I like to use one for Belgian waffles). Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Lightly spray the iron surface with a non-stick spray. Place batter in individual sections of the iron. Close and clamp the iron and allow to cook a few minutes, or until a deep golden brown. Serve immediately.
*This recipe can easily be halved for a smaller batch. Original recipe makes about 12 squares.
