Breakfast Waffles

Our breakfast over the weekend is usually very simple. We will have coffee and maybe an English muffin or a piece of toast but there are days we yearn for something heavier. Since Diana got me a waffle marker for Christmas I thought I make some for breakfast. Actually making waffles is not that difficult. You just have to mix all the ingredients and put some batter on the waffle maker and you will have freshly bake waffles in minutes. Best of all you can put any topping you want. Why not make some for your family this weekend.

Ingredients :

1 egg separated
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
2 tsp of baking powder
pinch of salt
2 tbsp of melted butter

1) Sift flour, baking powder and salt and set it aside. In a mixing bowl mix egg yolk ,sugar and milk together.
2) Then add in sifted dry ingredients. Beat egg white until stiff. Fold in egg white into the flour mixture. Mix in melted butter.
3)Get ready your waffle maker according to the manufacturer instruction. Put batter into your waffle maker (amount will depend on your waffle maker).
4) Serve warm with butter, syrup or fresh fruits topping.

Note : You can always freeze up any extra waffles and just warm it up the next day.

This is a healthy meal. When you top it off with fruits it gives that extra fiber. Yummy! But I don't have a waffle machine. I think....I will have to search in my kitchen in case Murphy still keep that 20 year old gadget. LOL.

Your waffle makes me feel like it is still a Sunday morning. How I wish I can have it for my breakfast now. The 3rd photo is really very appealing! I am drooling now......

Christelle said...

Hummm, I always love a good waffle, my fav is with squirty cream on top :))
We make them differently in Europe, and in the north of France we sometimes use beer in them to make them lighter (it doesn't taste of beer, it tastes good!! have a try :)))
