when we were registering for our wedding shower, i was on the fence about getting a waffle iron. those products that really only do one thing can some times be a waste of space, money or just gets shoved in the basement to never be found again. my husband wanted one and i decided lets put one one the registry and if we get one then it was meant to me. we are pancake eaters we have pancakes about once a week. we sometimes even have them for dinner. so i don’t think it was a total stretch for us when we ended up getting it.
we picked out this one. i liked that it makes the big, thick, fluffy waffles, and that it flipped for cooking the sides evenly. and amazon reviewer gave it great reviews. we are so happy with it and use it 3-5 times a month.
as you can see i have not mastered the amount of batter to put in, but i make less of a mess every time, so i’m hopeful.
i used a pretty basic whole wheat waffle recipe:
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 3/4 cups milk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoon honey
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup blueberries
i combined all ingredients into a bowl and mixed, poured batter into waffle maker then added blueberries. then enjoyed with syrup. made about 4 waffles in my maker, probably one more if i hadn’t gotten the batter everywhere.
