Tricia's Week 17 recipe: Waffles

Yup, waffles!  I've made waffles before, mostly from Bisquick, and sometimes from scratch, but never like these.  These involved cinnamon and separating eggs!  My apologies for the lateness of this recipe, but a new floor went into our kitchen and dining room this past week and left my cooking out of commission for the better part of the week. I'm happy to report that my kitchen is now back in (mostly) order and cooking can be had by all!  The following recipe is from the Penzey's Spices catalog, which if you do not have delivered to your door, you really should! 

Waffles with Strawberries
I didn't have any strawberries, but I'll leave them in the recipe below in case you wish to try this with the strawberries.  All spices in caps are from Penzey's Spices. 

2 cups sliced strawberries
2 Tb. regular or VANILLA SUGAR 
2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
3 egg yolks, beaten
1 3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 egg whites, stiffly beaten
1/4-1/2 cup powdered sugar or maple syrup (or both) if desired

Heat waffle iron.  Toss sliced strawberries with sugar or VANILLA SUGAR and set aside.  In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and CINNAMON.  Stir to blend.  In another bowl, combine egg yolks, milk and VANILLA.  Add to the dry ingredients and mix.  Stir in vegatable oil.  Carefully fold in the egg whites, careful to not over mix.  Pour batter into waffle iron and cook to desired doneness.

Would I make these again?  Yup!  I have never made waffles where I had to fold in the egg whites at the end.  Always instead I have simply mixed ingredients and poured into iron.  Mixing in this fashion made very light fluffy waffles.  They were even good without the vegetable oil, which I realized while writing this recipe that I forgot to add when I made them.  I'll have to try them again with the oil to see if there is a noticeable difference.

  1. I think I'll have to try this, as I love waffles, and haven't tried this type either. I saw that recipe, so thanks for the reminder to make it!
