Sunday Morning Waffles

Happy Sunday! Bryan and I are so happy to be back home. After a week away, sometimes there’s nothing better than being back in your own surroundings, not to mention kitchen. After sleeping in today, I celebrated our lazy morning with homemade waffles for breakfast. I use an incredibly quick recipe and within 10 minutes our apartment smelled like piping hot, delicious waffles. Add a melting pat of butter, warmed Vermont maple syrup and you’ve got a killer breakfast.

Here’s what you need to make two perfect waffles:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cups warm milk
  • 1/6 cup butter, melted, plus more garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used pure vanilla paste, a potent alternative)
  • Maple syrup
In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside.
Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; beat until blended.
Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Serve immediately.
Ladle batter onto waffle iron. Make sure it doesn’t overflow.
Close waffle iron & let cook until desired doneness.

Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup. Enjoy!
