The Dreaded Lurgy, and waffles!

If I'm going to cough and splutter my way through the next few days, I need my breakfast to make me smile!
I have ditched frozen waffles in favour of making my own, and these make a regular appearance in our house. If you don't make your own waffles, and use the frozen kind instead, try this recipe and make your own - they are simple and tasty and you'll never eat frozen ones again.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
2 cups milk
2 eggs, separated
1 Tbs. butter, melted
Pre-heat waffle-maker and oil grates lightly with spray oil.
Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Separate the two eggs, then add egg yolks, milk and the melted butter to the dry ingredients and beat together thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff.
Fold egg whites into flour mixture.
Pour 1 cup of batter onto lower grates and close the lid and cook for about 2 or 3 minutes.
Remove waffle and top with your favourite topping.
This recipe makes 8 Mickey Waffles (maybe more on a conventional iron), and since there is no way I'm in the mood for grocery shopping today, guess what's on today's 'sumpin to eat' menu?

I'm SO impressed. I'm all about the frozen ones. The thought of cooking makes... my head hurt. At least right now.

I hope you don't mind my popping in, here. I noticed you in other spots, including on Jenny's where you announced that you were new. I wanted to come take a looky!

You life sounds remarkably similar to mine--in that international sense. I'm still just getting to know your blog, but your profile keyed me in. Anyway... I'm a new fan.

I MUST know where you got your Mickey Mouse waffle maker!

Shauna said...

Frozen is what's at our house. All the time.

I'm afraid if I ever got a waffle maker like that, I'll never be allowed to go back to frozen again!

Brillig - thanks for coming :) I peeked at your blog earlier - will go back now for a proper look.

Flamenco Mom - the waffle iron was a present from my sister - she bought it in Magic Kingdom, but I'm nearly sure you could get it at those big WDW stores at Downtown Disney.

Shauna - Mickey Mouse aside, since the first time I made that recipe, I have never eaten a frozen waffle, nor given them to Miss E - it's not a spectacular recipe or anything, but it is just sooo much better than Eggo lol!
