(Quick pre-waffle information! Tomorrow, Tuesday, Jan. 29th I, Michelle Calva-Despard, will be the featured foodie on Hometown Pasadena’s Mangiamo! Check me out!!! And now back to your regularly scheduled recipe.)
I can’t recall the joke, but it has something to do with two pancakes and what one says to the other when something unfortunate has occurred. Punchline = How Waffle! Picture this being delivered by a perky seven-year-old who just bought her very first joke book and you’ll see why I’m smiling.
I did something this weekend that I’m afraid I can’t recommend you try at home… unless you know a lot of people who like waffles. Come to think of it, doesn’t everyone like a good waffle? OK, so go ahead and octuple my recipe. See how it blesses your life!
I made this silly mountain of waffles in honor of a lazy Sunday morning and for my niece who turned eight. What do you get the eight-year-old who has everything? Waffles! And home made whipped cream on the side…
Best Waffles (this recipe is already doubled for your convenience!)
Ingredients: 2 cups flour (I like whole wheat,) 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp, baking soda, 2 eggs, 2 cups buttermilk, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/3 cup veg. oil.
Directions: mix and pour baby! I sometimes have to thin the batter a tad with a splash of milk. Also, even though my fancy waffle iron swears nothing will stick to it… not the case. I don’t like cooking sprays (have you read those ingredient lists!?) so I quick-wipe my iron with a paper towel dipped in oil between waffles.
