Waffle_001

I love the idea of breakfast in bed, more than the reality of it. The last time I had breakfast in bed, the breakfast was actually in my bed. Not worth it. Romantic as it may be, breakfast at the table always works a bit better for me. With that said, Rob and I do love to act like a “Tuesday” is a “Saturday” from time to time. It is refreshing to interrupt the daily flow of work, laundry and bills and just “celebrate the day”. Waffles makes an ordinary day special, something about the crisp outer layer and light and fluffy inside. Add whip cream and you feel like your on vacation.

Ingredients

2 eggs beaten
2 cups flour
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Beat the eggs.
Add all other ingredients. Mix well.
Pour into hot waffle iron.

 

Confession: I put all my ingredients in the vita mix, turn the sucker on and wala. Your batter is complete. Just an idea.

Note: If you prefer to make these less traditional and a bit healthier, you can use gluten free flour or whole wheat flour. Almond/soy/hemp milk for cows milk, applesauce for oil and agave to replace brown sugar. I have tried them both ways. To be frank… healthy version = limp waffles… however, the flavor is awesome. So if you are going for presentation and the traditional crispness of a waffle you may just need to chalk it up to a delicious breakfast and feel no guilt… but if your not trying to impress, try the alternative. They are still tasty!
