Hey there and happy Friday! Today I’ve got a great recipe you can make this weekend to really wow those people you live with — aka family, or roommates, or that random person that slept over last night…#nojudgement.
Anywho…lets get right into makin’ these waffles! Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 Cups Cake flour (makes for fluffier waffles)
- 1/4 granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup Milk
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted & cooled
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoons almond extract
First things first, preheat your oven to 170ºF (or its lowest setting). In a bowl, whisk sugar and eggs together until pale yellow. Next, add melted butter to the mixture while continually whisking.
Now, add your 1/2 cup of yogurt to the mix and whisk until smooth.
Follow with the extracts…
Now in a separate bowl, combine the cake flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and mix till just combined.
Add the milk and whisk until just combined — and lumps will cook themselves out.
WAIT!! Did you preheat your waffle maker? Cause now would be a good time. I always place mine on the highest setting it can go — this means waffles that are crispy on the outside & fluffy on the inside.
You’re ready to cook when the light turns green (on most models). Grease your iron & then simply use a heaping 1/4 cup (you will have to experiment with the measurement for your waffle iron) of batter right in the middle of the iron. Use the back of your measuring cup to smooth out the batter slightly.
Close the lid on your waffle maker, wait till the light turns green again, and Ta-Da! Waffle done. Place the waffle in your preheated oven to await consumption.
** Pro-tip: if you want to serve your waffles crispy, place the cooked waffles back in the waffle iron for a few seconds prior to serving. Works like a champ.**
Now that you’ve consumed as many waffles as you can with your favorite toppings — you might have some left over for storage. Do you like frozen waffles in the morning? I know my husband does! Here’s how you can store your waffles at home, for the morning after:
Simply place your waffles in a gallon size plastic bag, wrapped individually in wax paper and place in your freezer. So simple it should be a crime.
To reheat, just pop them in the toaster like the ones you used to buy in the store.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
