I was looking at my blog this morning and realized 4 out of 5 recipes I posted in February were for some type of bread, quick bread or recipe using bread as an ingredient. Oops. I usually like a little more variety to my posts. I blame it on the weather. When it’s so damn cold baking just seems to feel good and makes the cold go away for a little bit.
Since the weather hasn’t gotten any warmer I am going to give you another bread type recipe. Today I am going to give a basic waffle recipe and a flavor variation on that basic recipe. A few weeks ago, I bought a Rival 2 plate waffle iron to replace a waffle iron I broke when I dropped a crockpot crock on it. Don’t ask. It wasn’t one of my finer moments. In the three weeks I have had it I have made waffles 5 times, experimenting with different flavors.
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup canola oil
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, milk and oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened, some lumps are okay. Spread 1/4 to 1/3 cup batter on each side of a pre heated waffle iron coated with cooking spray. Bake 7 minutes.
Apple Pie Waffles
Made up by me from stuff I had in my kitchen
To the dry ingredients in the basic waffle recipe add, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/8 tsp allspice, and a dash of cloves or ginger. To the wet ingredients add 1 tsp vanilla. Once the wet and dried ingredients have been mixed together fold in one peeled and finely chopped Granny Smith apple and proceed with baking them as directed.
