Waffles for Two

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • Instructions:

    1. Whisk the dry ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
    2. Combine the wet ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and melted butter until well combined.
    3. Wet ingredients meet dry ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk gently until just combined. Don’t overmix! A few lumps are perfectly fine.
    4. Heat up the waffle iron: Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This usually takes around 5 minutes.
    5. Pour and cook: Lightly grease your waffle iron. Pour a scoop of batter into the center of the preheated waffle iron, spreading it out slightly with the back of the spoon if needed. Close the lid and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the waffle is golden brown and crispy. Cooking time may vary depending on your waffle iron.
    6. Serve and enjoy! Carefully remove the waffle from the iron and serve immediately. Repeat with remaining batter. Top with your favorite syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, or a combination of all three!

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

    1. Can I use a different type of milk?

    Absolutely! You can substitute the milk in this recipe with any type of milk you have on hand, such as almond milk, oat milk, or coconut milk. Just be aware that using a non-dairy milk may slightly alter the texture and taste of your waffles.

    2. Don’t have buttermilk? What can I use instead?

    No problem! You can easily make your own buttermilk substitute by adding 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to 1 ¼ cups of milk. Let it sit for 5 minutes before using.

    3. My waffles aren’t fluffy! What went wrong?

    There are a couple of reasons why your waffles might not be fluffy. First, make sure you’re not overmixing the batter. A few lumps are perfectly fine. Overmixing can lead to tough and dense waffles. Second, ensure your waffle iron is preheated before adding the batter.

    4. Can I make these waffles ahead of time?

    Yes, you can! Simply cook the waffles according to the recipe and then keep them warm in a preheated oven (around 200°F) for up to 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can let them cool completely and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat them in a toaster or waffle iron before serving.
