What a gorgeous day here today. 75 and sunny can really change a bad mood into something good. We are nearing the end of the school year and I have mixed feelings about it. I love my kids to death, but having them here 24/7 while I work can be challenging. I am however really excited to see the end of homework coming. The last 2 weeks of school are the worst. With all these final projects I am about to lose my mind.
On to dinner plans...Continuing on with our breakfast for dinner theme this week. Tonight, we have
I always make my stuff from scratch. Waffles are no exception. They are easy to make and all the ingredients are in your house.
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 large eggs, separated
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cups milk
non-stick cooking spray
Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. In a medium bowl sift together flour and baking powder, set aside. In the kitchen aid beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow. Add the vanilla extract, melted butter, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until blended. Do not over mix. Pour into a bowl..again in cleaned outkitchen aid bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Using therubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Do not overmix! Coat the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour enough batter in iron to just cover waffle grid. Close and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately. You can top with whipped cream, Syrup, chocolate... whatever you like.
