sunday morning waffles

Sunday mornings are a lazy morning around our house. Often that spills over to the afternoon as well, but mornings are the kick-off point. We try to eat breakfast as a family around the table. That doesn’t happen any other morning of the week – the girls eat breakfast at whichever grandparent’s house they are dropped off at in the morning (my mother also only lives a few houses away, so the kids are lucky to have their pick of nice soft places to eat breakfast while they wait for the bus).

We’ve been experimenting with waffle recipes ever since we bought the in-laws a waffle maker for Christmas. Best Christmas present ever! We borrow it back several times a month – which is very easy since they live next door and our children have to go over twice a day to look after the horse and the pony show.

Anyway, I think we’ve hit on a keeper, or at least the one we might finally settle on, having lost the bookmark for our all time favourite. Here it is:

Simple Waffles

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup oil

In a large bowl whisk together the egg, oil and milk. In a separate medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until well moistened, if over mixed finished product will be tough.

Grease waffle iron and fill with 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup of batter. Lift lid of waffle iron and check brownness after about 3 minutes; let waffle continue to cook until desired brownness.

Yields 4 – 6 waffles.

{we added cooked and chopped bacon to some of the batter and decided that it is the perfect addition}

This particular breakfast/brunch set the tone for a perfectly enjoyable and lazy Sunday afternoon. We serve them with whatever fruit I remember to buy on my way home from work on Friday night, local maple syrup and lots of coffee for the adults.

    Stella saw the picture of the waffles and requested them for dinner. Not a bad idea!

    I like your idea of adding bacon to the batter, yum! I totally need a new waffle iron, mine is 16 years old and falling apart, but it still works so I haven’t bought a new one yet.
