Homemade waffles are a hit at our house.
I usually double the recipe and we have waffles to snack on during the day. You could also make extra and freeze them.
Teghan loves to help me mix the batter.
Today, she was intrigued by the viscosity of the oil and how it seemed to keep some of the ingredients separated as I was adding them to the bowl. She thought everything would “melt in” to to the flour.
Freedom, likes to add cinnamon to the batter. I usually wait towards the end as I am not a huge fan. You could always add chocolate chips or berries to the batter. I personally refuse to add them into the batter, especially chocolate chips, in order to make the clean up easier. I learned that lesson the hard way when I was a server and we were responsible for making the waffles. Chocolate chips make the biggest mess on the waffle iron.
Of course, Teghan and I had to sample the first few waffles.
We had to make sure they were “safe” for the family to eat.
Really, we had just worked up a big appetite doing housework.
