sunday waffles

Day 17 of 365 in the “Marathon of the Dope” . . .

.....................................................................................................

Since I make them every Sunday (yes, grown men can cook), and our family loves them . . .

. . . I thought I would share our best waffle recipe.

I could say it was passed down from great Gramma Darcy, a secret never shared outside the family on pain of death because it is so damn good . . .

. . . or I could tell you the truth - It came with our waffle iron.

Anyhow, here it is and it tastes great!

Sunday Waffles

Dry Ingredients:

1 Cup flour (we use whole wheat and it works great)
1 Tbsp sugar (white refined)
3 Tsp Baking Powder (white chemical compound)
1 Pinch salt (free flowing table kind, not that course sea stuff)

Mix the dry ingredients with a fork and then stir in the,

Wet ingredients:

1 cup mild (cow is best, but your choice)
3 egg yolks
1 Tbsp Vanilla extract (real is best, fake is okay)
4 Tbsp cooking oil (we use Safflower, don’t use olive)

How to do it:

I hope you kept the egg whites, because you need to beat them into a solid form and stir them into the mixed dry and wet ingredients. Don’t stir them in too much though because you don’t want to liquify them again.

Once all is mixed together, I use the I cup measure I used for the dry ingredients to scoop the mixture into the waffle iron (which must be hot before you start). Don’t overfill the iron (you only need about 3/4 cup or less) or you’ll have waffle goo oozing out of the device which is a waste - and messy.

Enjoy with syrup (just not corn syrup, yuck), fruit and coffee.

Now, go make some because it’s Sunday.
