Waffles For The Week
Bebe, my 5 year old goes thru stages of loving one breakfast food then suddenly she's on to the next. Breakfast is easy when she only wants Brown Cow...she prefers it as a smoothie. Bebe recently finished the stage of bagels + lox + red onion which lasted 2 1/2 weeks and now she's all about waffles (inspired by an episode of Bananas in Pajamas). I love to wake up on a slow Saturday and just start creating in my kitchen. Cooking, baking and creating is relaxing to me...hours pass like rapid seconds.
I normally will make my pancake & waffle mix, however since I discovered Pamela's Products (gluten- free) this is the only mix I have been using. It's not instant, it calls for egg, water and oil. I like to embellish a straight forward recipe.
Bebe's Favorite Waffles
2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups Pamela's Mix
3/4 cup water/liquid...buttermilk/coconut milk/almond milk
1 T EVOO
1 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla
zest of 1 orange or lemon
melted ghee or oil to grease waffle iron
Whip the egg whites until stiff (you'll want to skip this but don't...makes for a light texture). In a separate bowl add all the remaining ingredients, mix till smooth. Fold in the egg whites. Use batter immediately in a preheated, greased waffle iron. I use a small silicone baster to grease iron.
Berries and maple syrup are a must.
Yields 12 farm animal waffles or 3-4 7inch round waffles.
