I have been craving waffles recently, so yesterday I decided to break in our waffle maker (yes this was a wedding gift that has been in the box for far too long...don't judge - better late than never!). This recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook was beyond easy. If I had known how simple to make and absolutely delicious the waffles would be I would have opened the waffle maker a long time ago...
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup cooking oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
(I added 1 cup of blueberries)
my topping choices:
1. In a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.
2. In another medium bowl beat eggs slightly; stir in milk, oil, and vanilla. Add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).
3. Pour 1 to 1 1/4 cups of batter onto grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle baker. Close lid quickly; do not open until done. Bake according to manufacturer's directions. When done, use a fork to lift waffle off grid. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm.
