YOU'll NEVER SEE ME WAFFLING UNLESS I'VE GOT A YEN
FOR ONE OF MY BREAKFAST FAVORITES

No matter what time of day. Like tonight.

I've always been proud of my waffles. I say my waffles, even though I found the recipe years ago when I was in college and happened upon the recipe, in the university library, in an old magazine from the 1950's as I recall. I loved to look at all those old magazines, especially from the forties and fifties.

I added the pecans myself because, well, I like pecan waffles. Here's a batch I made tonight:

Ed's Pecan Waffles

PecanWaffles


I got the idea to make them because I made biscuits the other day and they didn't rise because my baking powder was old. I make these waffles with baking soda, vinegar, and a separated egg, and they come out pretty light and fluffy and are just so delicious.

Anyone else make waffles from scratch? Any tips? No waffling now. I don't mind if you share.

Sittin' on a rainbow,
Got a string around my finger,
What a world, what a life ...

Waffles for dinner... must be watching political news when you got hungry.

I have always liked them, but only when they are hot. Cold waffles are awful

Me - I am a maple addict.

Cold waffles, like cold pancakes, cold biscuits, and cold beignets certainly lose something and fast. I forgot about the maple thing. I used up my last drop of genuine maple syrup a year ago. I was raised on cane syrup here, being a Louisiana bayou boy.

I can guarantee you would have liked these. The pecans are a great touch. I have a little batter left for the morning.

You know, I've never made waffles from scratch...haven't made waffles or pancakes for a long time...but I do have a waffle iron, and now you make me want to use it with that great picture!

Can I use regular flour to make waffles from scratch? Do you have a foolproof recipe I can use (or at least measurements--how much flour, egg, etc)? Those waffles make you a waffle master.

You are certainly welcome to my old recipe:

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt

sift dry ingredients

add 1 egg yolk
7/8 cup milk
2 tbs. vinegar (important)
2 1/2 TBS shortening or margarine
1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)

Mix well, THEN stir in the egg white and mix again.

I add pecans but you can use your imagination.

Grease your waffle iron and cook until light goes off or waffles stop steaming. Sometimes you have to adjust to waffle iron.

Good luck and do let me know of you like them!

Oh, drat. In cutting the recipe in half for you, I made a couple of mistakes. The revised proportions here are now correct. Sorry!
