A while back, I posted a pic on our FB along with a dirty little secret. It was a box full of Eggo waffles, along with a confession that our kids love the things despite their parents owning a bakery. We keep the freezer stocked full with those frozen little things. It's embarrassing to admit, but it was one of the only things we cared about saving from the IRMA power outage that made us have to throw out all of our food.... and save all those waffles we did! Lol.
However, we don't get to spend lots of early mornings with our kids, since, we own a bakery, and obviously early mornings come with the territory. We cherish (and so do our kiddos!) the rare moments and days we get to spend our mornings together. Gathered around the table filled with buttery goodness, fresh fruits and sticky syrup many of our best family memories are made.
Today, I'm sharing our family recipe of "Mom's Waffles", and I hope they'll help you make memories with your family too!
2 C. All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 C Buttermilk (you can make your own by adding a tsp of vinegar to milk, however we highly suggest using actual buttermilk for this recipe!)
3TBSP Melted Butter
2 eggs, separated.
1 tsp. real vanilla
In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well with a whisk.
In a separate bowl, fluff egg whites until they are soft peak and shiny. Set aside.
In another bowl, combine buttermilk, melted butter and egg yolks. Whisk well.
Made a "well" or a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ones. Mix with a spoon until everything is incorporated. This batter will be lumpy- and that ok! Now gently fold in your fluffed egg whites, folding the batter just a few times.
Add about 1/2C batter to your preheated waffle iron and cook according to its instructions.
Top with butter, whipping cream, syrup, fresh fruit, powdered sugar or anything else you like and make memories around your table!
You can add a couple TBSP of Cocoa Powder for Chocolate waffles- yum!
