L and I have the best waffle iron ever--a Belgian Waffle iron that is a breeze to use and clean up.
My mom makes waffles in her regular waffle iron and the smell and taste of these reminds me so much of home it is astounding.
|My meal. Yup. Ate it by hand. Inhaled it, but nobody is perfect!|
I used my trusty old-school (pretty pathetic and falling apart) Betty Crocker and tweaked the recipe just a bit to help with points, but I could have left out more butter I think--I was just too nervous to make too big of an adjustment.
2 eggs (I used 1 egg and 2 egg whites)
2 C Buttermilk (I made homemade--2 TBSP + rest skim milk, sit for 10 minutes)
2 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt (I used kosher)
1/4 C + 2 TBSP Shortening (I used 5 TBSP Butter)
Add rest of ingredients and mix until smooth.
Put in waffle iron.
8 full waffles 6pts+/waffle
I froze the remaining waffles so when the craving arrives again, I can toast them. YAY!
