Waffles or Pancakes.. the home made kind!
2 cups sifted flour (I like to use whole wheat... and sometimes I do a mixture of whole wheat & oats)
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter
(last time I made these, I also added a dash of black strap molasses for coloring and flavor!)
Preheat waffle iron. Sift flour, salt and baking powder into large bowl. Beat eggs until foamy. Blend in milk, add butter. Add liquid ingredients to flour mixture beat with rotary beater (I use either my Vita Mix or my Kitchen Aid mixer) until smooth.
Pour batter onto center of waffle iron. Batter should be spread to within one inch from edge. Bake until steaming stops and waffle is golden brown. Loosen with fork. Makes 8 waffles. Serve hot with syrup, confectioners sugar, or ice cream. Can be doubled... freeze them for quick breakfast!
I love to use this recipe for pancakes! My kids love them... and so do I!
