102. I spoiled my lovely family this past Saturday morning and made them homemade "Waffles".
Yes, they take time to prepare, but the outcome is so worth it!
My recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks, "The American Country Inn and Bed and Breakfast Cookbook". The recipe is "Wake'Em Up Cinnamon and Raisin Waffles" on
pages 271-272. You can make the waffles with or without raisins, (for all you folks who don't appreciate the wonder of raisins =-).
Wake 'Em Up Cinnamon and Raisin Waffles
¼ cup all purpose flour
1 cup raisins
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon sugar
* * * * * * *
1¼ cups milk
2 eggs, separated
½ cup melted butter
Combine the ¼cup flour with the raisins to make chopping easier. Chop the raisins into nice-sized bits. Set aside. Combine the remaining flour with the other dry ingredients; sift, stir well with a whisk and resift. Blend well the egg yolks, milk and butter. Lightly combine the dry and liquid ingredients until there are no lumps. Stir in the raisin bits. Beat the egg whites until they peak;
gently fold them into the batter.
Bake in a greased waffle iron until golden brown.
We enjoyed our breakfast!
