The Best Darn Waffle Recipe

I'm always on the lookout for a good recipe, even if it's a new twist on one I already have. This week I've been glancing through some of my cookbooks, and I saw this recipe for Homemade Waffles and thought..."hm, this sounds good!" So, tonight, my kiddos asked me to make waffles! I pulled out my Get-Togethers with Gooseberry Patch (I reviewed the book in February 2010 - click HERE to see), and away I went!

This really turned out to be the Best Darn Waffle Recipe I've ever had! It was light and fluffy, but crisped up really well around the edges! Next time, I plan on adding just a bit of vanilla for a little added flavor, but it doesn't really even need it! If you're looking to break out of the Just Add Water mixes (which are nice, but not super flavorful), try this one out!!!

Gooseberry Patch's Homemade Waffles

2 cups AP flour
1 tbs baking powder
1 tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs, separated
1.5 cups milk
5 tbs shortening, melted

1. Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Set aside.

2. Beat together egg yolks, milk and shortening; blend into flour mixture until smooth.

3. Stiffly beat egg whites; fold into batter. (Make sure you fold here so you don't lose the air the egg whites are whipping into your batter! This is what makes them so light and fluffy!!)

4. Pour batter into waffle iron (as much as your iron directs).

Serve warm with syrup, berries, or whatever you like! (READ: NUTELLA!!)
