I woke up this morning craving waffles and decided that that is what we were going to have for breakfast. I started browsing a lot of different recipes but they all called for buttermilk which I don't happen to keep on hand at all time. I finally found this one and was so encouraged by the reviews and the ease of the recipe that I had to try it. It was fantastic! The picture doesn't really do them justice. I loved the unique flavor of the waffles and probably ate more than I should have. Jake really loved them too. The recipe says it only makes 4 servings, but this recipe could easily fill 4 people. (Unless you have an extra hungry husband. :-)) I made some modifications to the original recipe. My modified recipe is listed below, and here is the original recipe: Waffles.

From: Allrecipes.com

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs, separated
2 – 3 T sugar
2 – 3 tsp. Vanilla
1 cup fruit (optional)

Preheat waffle iron. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Stir in milk, oil, vanilla and egg yolks until mixture is smooth. (Blend in fruit, if desired.) In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold egg whites into batter.

Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden; serve hot.

This sounds awesome!!! I'll have to try it out sometime.
For some reason your Recent Visitors thing never shows when I come on your website, although I come check it out almost everyday! Weird!
