That also means they wanted homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast.
Sorry kids, not this morning. I want something faster, cleaner, and easier.
OH BOY WAFFLES!
It doesn’t get much easier than Oh Boy Waffles.
I’ve eaten waffles made from this recipe since I was a little girl. Our family got the recipe from our dear friends and neighbors, the Lunds, who loved to invite us over to their home for Waffle Parties.
Oh Boy Waffles is a perfect basic recipe. It’s easy to spruce up with spices or mini chocolate chips. My personal favorite is simply topping my hot waffle with butter and fresh berries.
But, since I try never to buy fresh berries in the middle of winter, today it was plain waffles with your choice of syrup… maple, blueberry, chokecherry, or my personal favorite, huckleberry syrup. My son divided his waffle and tried all four this morning.
In goes the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Give it a little stir.
Mix it up, but don’t overmix. It’s OK if the batter is a little lumpy.
Pour the batter into the waffle maker. I just got a new Waffle Maker for Christmas. The jury is still out as to whether or not I like it as much as my last one. Apparently it is the #1 rated maker from Cooks Illustrated.
It replaced my Waring Pro Belgian Waffle Maker which made the best waffles I’ve ever had. But the darn thing broke in less than two years.
We were reluctant to buy the same model again with such a poor quality record.
Now that I’ve tried my new iron, I am torn. Hopefully the new iron will be better quality, but I am missing the Waring’s amazingly delicious, lofty and light waffles.
If you think that looks good, here’s the recipe:
