Yesterday was Nation Waffle Day,
and it got me thinking why I like waffles so much more than pancakes.
Maybe because one of my favorite characters from Parks and Rec was obsessed with them,
maybe because they are sweet and comforting,
or maybe because they are syrup traps...
Regardless, the gift of waffle mix and a fun bottle of syrup is always a treat.
My friend Maureen, makes the best waffles around,
so I love to package the dry ingredients and then enclose the recipe so they can add the rest.
4 Cups All Purpose Flour (sifted)
1 1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1 1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder
1 Tbs. Sugar
1/2 Tsp. Salt
1 Qt. Buttermilk
4 Tbs. melted Butter
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Separate the eggs and beat the whites to soft peaks in separate bowl. Add the egg yolks and buttermilk to the dry ingredients and mix well with a hand beater. Add the butter and fold in the egg whites. If thew mixture is too thick you can thin it with a little milk or water.
