    Default Waffles

    This morning I noticed some left over waffle batter in the fridge from a
    weekend breakfast for the Grandkids who were up for the holiday.

    So out came the the single el-cheapo waffle maker so I could make one for my
    MIL who is with us. I use a shot glass for the syrup so she can do it
    herself.

    Well since I went off the low carb for the holiday I figured one more day
    and I made myself a waffle.

    Now I have liked butter & sour cream and either syrup or jam on both waffles
    and crÍpes and pancakes since I was a kid - I know it's really an excuse to
    eat sour cream and butter - sinful but once in a blue moon why not? Don't
    answer that.

    So what do you like on waffles?

    Butter & Syrup?
    Fried chicken?
    Fresh fruit & whipped cream?
    Canned peaches?
    Caviar?

    :-)

    You're making me want to break out our little round waffle maker. I love
    lots of butter and real maple syrup. But once I had thawed frozen
    strawberries and whipped cream on them (ala strawberry shortcake) and they
    were pretty good too.

    I always thought that whipped cream with fresh berries was the perfect
    topping for waffles, but others in my family favor much less
    traditional choices - honey, browned butter, and even apple sauce.
    Yuck!

    As a breakfast item, waffles for me *require* butter and syrup, preferably
    with the butter melted and the syrup warmed.

    As a dessert, fresh fruit and whipped cream seems ideal. And there are
    other flavors of waffles that work well here; e.g., chocolate or
    gingerbread waffles. A chocolate waffle sundae is a nice variation, with a
    scoop or two of a good vanilla ice cream topping a chocolate waffle and a
    drizzle of chocolate syrup.

    Fried chicken and waffles is an interesting dinner combination. While I
    donít make it myself, there are a couple of restaurants in Phoenix that
    specialize in this combination and their quality is excellent. We go a
    couple of times a year.

    Plain waffles also serve as a good base for creamed dishes like creamed
    chicken or chicken a la king.

    Canned fruit? Caviar? Not on mine, thanks.

    The diversity of waffles in the US probably reached its zenith between the
    1940s through the mid 1950s. The waffle iron usually took a prominent
    position on the dining room table for such meals during that period.

    I much prefer pancakes or crepes to waffles. Sour cream sounds good.
    I usually use butter and real maple syrup. There's not much that maple
    syrup doesn't improve.

    Butter and syrup. Yum!


    I also abandoned my low carb diet for the holiday. My biggest cheat was
    pancakes, pecan pie and apples. I miss fruit more than I miss bread,
    rice, potatoes or pasta. Who knew!?

    The leftover egg shells, bread crusts, and sausage wrapper from a

    The only waffle you'll see in my house is in the trash can or the
    bird feeder.

    That's all one ever needs, assuming we're talkin' melted butter and a gutsy
    Grade B syrup.

    I mix up a bit of applesauce, maple syrup and some blueberry jam -
    heat in mike and use to pour over waffles or dip 'em. Straight syrup
    is too sicky sweet for me.

    Leftover waffles? I toast em lightly and spread with peanut butter
    and cream cheese - form a sandwich - nice grab and go. Do em ahead
    and have a handy snack for the car, late night munching.

    I tend to make waffles by the ton - I could eat em every day. I mix a
    large batch of the dry ingreeds ahead, then just toss in an egg and a
    cup of yogurt to a cup of the dry stuff.

    Howdy,

    Do you leaven them with yeast or chemically?

    Sour-cherry conserve.

    Toasted pecans in malt syrup.

    Fresh peaches, toasted almonds, and *unwhipped* cream.

    Otherwise, Grade B maple syrup.

    I skip adding butter, since all the waffles I make contain plenty of butter
    already.

    The butter melts if the waffle is hot... as for grade B, yeah -
    "gutsy" is a good word for it. LOL

    Anything that's nice with crepes/crespelli is nice with waffles. The waffle
    Sunday supper is very tempting to revive, especially here.

    Butter, powdered sugar and fresh squeezed lemon juice.

    Barring that, butter and maple syrup, or butter and strawberry jam.

    I like butter and syrup, but I wouldn't keep batter longer than one
    overnight stay in the fridge....that's just me.

    Hello again,

    You might give this a try:

    The evening before baking the waffles -

    mix to form a smooth batter

    1 quart of milk
    3/4 tsp yeast
    1.5 tsp salt
    1.5 tsp sugar
    640g low protein flour
    1 1/4 stick melted butter

    Let that sit at room temperature over night. Be sure it is
    in a large container as it will more than triple in volume.

    Then, just prior to baking add:

    3 beaten eggs
    1/2 tsp baking soda

    Mix, and then bake.

    I know that once I tried these, I never went back...


    All the best,
