I think waffles are pretty much the perfect breakfast food, they are just so wonderfully crispy and delicious! For the longest time I would lament to Will about our lack of a waffle iron to which he would usually just laugh at me. So when the wedding came around I decided for the rehearsal dinner we were going to do waffles, which meant I would have to buy two waffle irons! I seriously couldn't be happier about that choice, not only did people at the rehearsal dinner love having waffles but now I get to make waffles as often as I want! Which has be quite often, let me tell you.
The other day I came up with one of the tastiest recipes second only to the tradition recipe (you just can't go wrong with it): Apple Cider Waffles! We still had some of the apple cider we squeezed a couple weekends ago that need to be used up, so Apple Cider Waffles were made.
1 2/3 cup flour (if batter is runny add 1Tbsp at a time until the batter is thicker)
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup cider
1/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp vanilla
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside, in another bowl combine eggs and wet ingredients and mix well. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until all lumps are gone. Scoop about 1 cup of batter into the waffle iron and cook until golden brown (about 3-4 mins). Enjoy!
Adding the apple cider just made the waffles so much more decadent and filling, so in the words of Tom and Donna 'Treat Yo Self'
