Real waffles aren’t cooked in a toaster. I know, crazy right? There’s this thing called a “waffle iron” that is made just for waffles.
And you might have all the ingredients already. No, you don’t need to buy a special mix. You’ll pay three times as much for just what you see here.
Melt the butter, then combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
Beat until there are no lumps. While you’re beating it, heat your waffle iron. When it’s ready – most electric ones have a light that comes on when they’re hot enough – rub the inside with a little butter.
Add just enough batter to fill the iron to the top of the square indentations.
Cook until the dough is lightly browned across most of the surface. Not just a little, like this …
… but most of it, like this.
Lift the edge up and fold over to make it easier to remove from the iron.
Top with fruit, syrup, whipped cream, whatever you like.
And that’s it.
PS: That whipped cream is special. It’s the cinnamon cream they served at malt shops in the 50s. I’ll have that recipe up shortly.
