I was strolling through the grocery store a few weeks ago and decided to pick up some frozen waffles for the kids. I thought it would give them something different and something easy on all of us on those morning I'm coming off work.
The kids have ate them without complaint but after getting some out of the freezer for Jack, I thought to myself ," how gross?" They are basically like eating a piece of cardboard. I'm assuming that cardboard can easily be eaten if it's covered in butter and syrup. I thought I had eaten them before, too. I didn't remember them quite the same but regardless of all that I purchased them again.
I felt very guilty.
I knew I should do better than this.
If Kellogg's can freeze their waffles, why can't I?
Well, I can and I did.
I pulled out my waffle maker.
Gathered my ingredients
If you have a tried and true waffle recipe by all means use it.
I on the other hand am not a typical cook.
I'm an eye-baller and an improviser.
I put a good bit of self-rising flour in a mixing bowl, maybe 2 cup maybe a little more.
Add about a teaspoon of salt and some sugar.
You could leave those out if you don't want them or have it on hand.
I measure the salt in the palm of my hand and throw it in.
The sugar I just sprinkle along the top of my flour; it's really more to help it brown nicely.
Take a whisk and stir it up.
I then add the egg, oil(about a 1/4 cup), teaspoon of vanilla( usually your cap is a teaspoon)
and add your milk or some real big tablespoons of sour cream.
I used the sour cream because I forgot we were out of milk....
It will be really thick. I then move to the sink and
Add water and whisk until I get it looking about right.
*about right is when it is thin enough to pour but not too thin*
When you freeze them it will be best to put wax paper between them.
I use an old bread bag to store them in the freezer.
Do your own waffles.
Thanks for the visit.
