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.
And just a quick reminder to make sure to send in your GRANDMA'S RECIPE for our contest! Winner gets a KitchenAid Mixer or a gift certificate of the same value!
