In the spirit of our ongoing contest, I thought it would be fun to share one of my, personal, favourite recipes right from my own grandmothers pantry. Now, this is a bit of a special treat as my grandma is borderline famous for her waffles (isn’t that such a grandmotherly thing to be famous for?) To the point that my friends legitimately refer to her as “Grandma Waffles” . They’re light as air on the inside, and crispy on the out. In one word: perfection.
And when the timing is right, she cooks down wild blueberries, picked straight from the forest that lines our cottage, to pour on top. It’s basically my version of heaven.
- 2 cups of flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs, separated
- 1 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup oil
- Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.
- Carefully separate your eggs.
- Beat egg yolks and add them gradually to the milk.
- Add egg yolks and milk mixture to flour mixture.
- Stir in the oil.
- In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff.
- Very gently fold egg whites into the flour mixture. Do NOT over mix or the waffles will be tough.
- Cook as you would on your waffle maker.
- Top with a pad of butter and any sort of fruit sauce or maple syrup, to your liking.
