Sunday Morning Waffles

 My husband doesn't usually cook or bake in our house. Not that he can't, he just doesn't. And not because he doesn't want to, he works full time, so I usually end up doing the cooking and baking.

But Sunday mornings are usually his. Why? Because he likes to make breakfast, and I'm all about the cold cereal and toast. He has dabbled at homemade pancakes and omelets, but his specialty is waffles. He has the patience and the tricks to make excellent waffles! And this is saying a lot, because for some reason waffles are not my favorite breakfast food, but his changed my mind! These are a little crispy on the outside, and nice and fluffy on the inside. I think it's so fun to have traditions in my family, and my kids look forward to Sunday Morning Waffles every week!! And when you find a good recipe, you just stick with it, right? My kids love theirs with just butter and syrup (boring!!) but here are some fun ways to serve your waffles!

*Whipped cream and berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc)
*Drizzled with warm Nutella, sliced bananas, and candied hazelnuts
*Drizzled with warm peanut butter and your favorite jam
*Sliced strawberries with chocolate syrup and dusted with powdered sugar
*Sliced strawberries, bananas, and pineapple, whipped cream, and sliced almonds

How will you serve your waffles??

Sunday Morning Waffles
by Girls in Aprons

1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cooking oil
2 egg whites

In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In another mixing bowl beat the egg yolks slightly. Stir in buttermilk and oil. Add it all at once to the dry mixture, stirring just until combined. It should still be a little lumpy.

In a small bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer till peaks form (the tips will stand straight up with you pull the beaters out). Gently fold the egg whites into the batter. Do not overmix!

Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and cook according to the directions of your specific waffle iron. Makes about 12-15 waffles.
