Description

My grandmother’s trusty waffle recipe. Tastes best with real maple syrup. Warning: Start recipe the night before! The longer you let it sit (I prefer 10 hours to, say, 7) the stronger the sourdough taste. The overnight rest time is NOT included in the prep/cook time below. They’re really fast to make otherwise. PERFECT food for overnight company!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 package Dry Yeast (1/4 Oz. OR 2.25 Tsp., Depending On Your System Of Measuring)
  • 2-½ cups Lukewarm Water
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil Or Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 bottle Cooking Spray
  • 1 bottle Maple Syrup, Plus Margarine/butter Or Other Preferred Toppings (such As Whipped Cream Or Fruit)

Preparation

1. The night before you want your waffles, mix the flour, yeast, and lukewarm water.

2. Put in a tall bowl, as it will rise quite a bit.

3. Cover with a towel and let sit in room temperature overnight.

4. In the morning, uncover and stir. Don’t be put off by the texture. It’s supposed to look weird. Really.

5. Mix eggs and oil/milk in a small bowl and add enough to waffle batter to make it thin enough to use. Stir.

6. It might be a little tough to make it all mix together, because it tends to be a bit sticky, but keep at it.

7. In small, separate bowl combine baking soda and sugar. Mix until there are no lumps.

8. Add soda & sugar mixture to the bowl with waffle dough and stir in.

9. Let sit about fifteen minutes. (This would be a good time to start preheating your waffle iron.)

10. Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. You’ll need to repeat this occasionally, as the spray wears off.

11. Experiment with amounts of waffle dough to put in the iron and cooking times. We use a ladle of batter per waffle and cook each one for 3-5 minutes. Those sizes and times work perfectly for us, but waffle irons vary in size and cooking times.

12. You can get creative with adding other ingredients. I haven’t tried any of these yet, but I’ve heard adding crumbled bacon, blueberries, grated apples, etc. to the mix before making the waffles works well.

13. For us, the recipe usually yields 8-9 waffles, enough for 3-4 people. It might differ for your waffle iron.

I just did not think they tasted good. It is probably a matter of personal taste. What do I know?
