Old Time Waffles

 Do you want to know what I just can't stand? Bisquick. I prefer whipping up classic sweets from scratch. If you're going to take in the calories, you better do it right ... right? 

Whenever I'm in the mood to make homemade waffle or pancake mix, I crack open my favorite cook book (the Internet). Today's recipe is adapted from Urban Comfort

2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 3/4 cup milk
2 large eggs, separated
                                                         1/2 cup melted butter                                                        

1.  Mix and sift dry ingredients together.
 2.  Add milk, which has been mixed with beaten egg yolks.
 3.  Add melted butter; beat until all lumps have disappeared and the mixture is smooth and creamy.
4.  Fold in beaten egg whites.  Put in small amount of batter and bake 3 minutes or until steam has stopped.

Topped with bacon, Amish made sweet cream, and that maple stuff that we all like so much. 

The kids got a more fun (and nutritious) version.

  1. Cute.

    I'll have to try this.

  2. I'm with you on the doing it from scratch thing. However, I've never made home made waffles before. It looks so easy and simple to begin with why was it even necessary to invent something like bisquick? The ice cream cone waffles look super cute!
