Waffle Time

Savanah prefers waffles to pancakes (freak she is) and we got a hand me down waffle iron We never look a gift horse in the mouth. Oh contraire, we have been blessed by my best friend and getting her older modles of kitchen appliances when she gets upgrades. Well her recently hand-over was her waffle iron. And due to the fact that we had no recipe to pull from she copied off a few for us to try and we finally hit on one that is a good one. That is not to say we will stop experimenting, oh no. There will be more try-outs.

2 eggs
2 cups milk (we used almond)
1&1/2 t vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour (we used unbleached)
1/2 cup sugar (we used raw)
2 t baking powder
1 t salt
4 T unsalted butter(we used salted, non-vegan)
Preheat waffle iron and oven to 250 if you are cooking for a group of people. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Over a sheet of waxed paper, sift together the flour, sugar and baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and whisk until smooth.

Pour about 1/2 cup of the batter into each well of the waffle maker and close the lid. Cook the waffles until crisp, 4-6 minutes. Transfer the waffles to a wire rack set on a baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven. Repeat to cook the remaining batter.

Makes 4 good-sized waffles. I could not finish the one Savanah made for me.
