This Mornin' I'm Makin' Waffles!

It's Saturday morning. The last glorious Saturday that (BF)G has off for the summer before his normal crazy work schedule resumes! It's been nice having home most weekends over the summer, and when he's home I always make a big breakfast. My usual repertoire consists o a rotation of things including bacon, eggs (from my neighbour's farm - farm fresh are truly the best!!!!!), homemade hash browns, toast and jam, or blueberry pancakes and sausages, or Eggs Benedict (made with homemade English muffins!) and fried potatoes, or like this morning, waffles with whip cream, strawberries (that we picked at my neighbour's early in the summer then froze) and bacon or sausages on the side.

Waffles are so easy to make and so good! Here's my go-to recipe:


2 1/2 cups of flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 eggs, beaten with fork
3 cups of milk
1/2 cup oil or melted butter

Pre-heat waffle maker.

Mix dry ingredients together, then in a separate bowl, combine milk, eggs and oil. Pour liquid into dry ingredients, stirring while you pour to prevent large lumps. Mix until fairly smooth then cook according to your waffle maker's instructions until golden. Serve warm with whip cream, fruit (fresh or thawed from frozen) and syrup (ok. Admittedly I'm the sweet tooth in this house - I'm the only one that adds the syrup). Enjoy!!!

This recipe makes a lot. Enough for two adults and two small boys and enough left over for a weekday breakfast for myself and the little ones. Any leftover waffles freeze well, just wrap them well (and individually unless you like fighting with frozen baked goods) in plastic wrap. When you need a quick breakfast take them out of the freezer and pop in the toaster. You can also half the recipe easily.
