When it comes to a waffle recipe, I’m kind of a snob. See, I’m addicted to waffles. I eat them all. the. time. Being vegetarian, I don’t just “grab” whatever I can find when I’m hungry in a hurry. And waffles are my go-to. I got this recipe from my mamma – who is one of the best cooks you’ll ever meet. So when she shared it with me I was a convert – only scratch made waffles will pass through these lips – and this is hands down the best waffle recipe you’ll ever eat.
- 3 whole eggs
- 1 cup milk (whole works best)
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
Start by heating your waffle maker according to instructions. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar & butter until well combined. Slowly add in the flour until it *JUST* comes together. Don’t over beat, that’s how you get tough waffles.
Every waffle maker is different, but most have a little light to tell you when it’s ready to cook and when the waffles are done. Just cook them according to directions and you’ll be in gastronomical heaven in no time.
Yields approx 6 waffles (depending on the size of your waffle maker)
Now, it’s not my place to tell you how to eat them. But if you wanna go all Forrest Gump you can eat waffles & syrup, or waffles & fruit, or waffles & ice cream, or waffle sandwiches – the possibilities are as endless as my love for them.
