Doesn’t get much better than starting your morning off with fresh homemade waffles. I’d say I had a particularly good weekend! I jammed packed visiting with lots of friends, barbequed, went out, and saw Magic Mike. I also tried a new beer over the weekend that I was fond of. I’ll be doing a brew review on it soon.
Saturday morning while I was still laying in bed, I was trying to think of something new to do to a standard waffle recipe. I was craving something pretty sweet. I know that this isn’t technically snickerdoodle since there isn’t any cream of tartar, but these waffles smell just like snickerdoodles from the addition of cinnamon and vanilla. These waffles also give off the most awesome aroma while they’re in the waffle iron.
Luckily, since we’re just two people, we get to eat them again the next day, and maybe the next day, too. These waffles didn’t turn out overly sweet, but just have a nice hint of cinnamon, so don’t worry, it’s not like you’re eating dessert for breakfast.This recipe could also easily be changed for your health needs.
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cups milk
1. Preheat your waffle iron.
2. In a large bowl; whisk together dry ingredients.
3. Whisk in eggs, vanilla, melted butter, and milk. Whisk until lumps are gone.
4. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto waffle iron and cook for about 3 minutes or until your light goes off.
You may or may not need all the 2 cups of milk. I used just under 2 cups, but had to add a little more liquid the next day. The batter stores well in refrigerator properly covered for up to 2 days.
