waffles from scratch

Lately I have gotten into the habit of using my bisquick mix when whipping up a batch of waffles, usually to save on time, either because have slept waaaaay in and I have to hurry and get breakfast on the table before it's lunchtime, or we are about to be late for church. Last Sat. morning convinced me that the extra 5 minutes it takes to make waffles from scratch is more than worth it. Instead of the usual gulping down of the dry/ bland bisquickies with a glass of milk and half a bottle of syrup...the waffles were moist and tasted good even without butter and syrup. David and I just couldn't stop " mmmm-ing " over them. Infact I was impressed enough that I haven't forgotten (and it's Tuesday) how much I want share this recipe with you:

Waffles From Scratch-
(from The Taste of Home Cookbook)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted

1) In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Combine egg yolks, milk and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

2) In a small mixing bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form; gently fold into batter

3) Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown. Top with confectioners' sugarand fruit or serve with syrup. Or in our case, fresh strawberries and real whipped cream.

Yeild: 4 waffles(about 6 inches)

It sounds like my waffle recipe dear. :) I think mine came out of an old Mennonite cookbook, though. Just goes to show how good waffles are made even being spanned out over years and different cooks and methods, and books. Thank you for sharing. Now I'm hungry again. :)

Have you ever made your own bisquick mix?? It is super cheap and easy to make and you can make a bunch of different things out of if. We love it at our house!
