Cookin' with Leo
Scratch Made Buttermilk Waffles
So, ya'll like great breakfasts' with lots of java and all the fixinn's. Well here is a great breakfast fer all you hungry jacks, whatever. Course this ain't made out of mixes, this hear is good ol' cookin ingenuity whichever. An, jes in case ya'll ain't got a waffle iron, this is just as good fer makin' flap jacks too.
Ya'll can do this for Easter Morning for a real treat.
You should have most of these things around the house and in the pantry, but just in case not, then take a good look at the list of ingredients and get out and get what you need.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
2 eggs, separated
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Maybe a little of that sprayin' oil to coat the waffle iron
However if you have a good waffle iron which you have been using for a while it should have a good enough coat on it, unless you been scrubbin' it with detergent and scouring pads.
In a mixing bowl combine flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda.
In another bowl mix together the buttermilk and the egg yolks, stir in the butter and vanilla.
Stir the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture.
Beat the egg whites with a wire whisk or electric mixer until they hold soft peaks.
Blend them gently into the batter.
Preheat the waffle Iron.
Spread a ladleful of batter onto the waffle iron and bake until the waffle is golden-brown, usually 3 to 5 minutes.
Serve immediately, or keep warm for a few minutes in a low oven while you do another one or two waffles so that each one at the table gets served at the same time.
Some melted butter to pour over the waffles and some Maple Syrup does it for the topping. A couple of strips of bacon goes right along there too. And, don't forget the coffee.
Have a happy Easter breakfast!
