Today, since my baby is here and his birthday is soon and he has miluim, (army reserves) next week, I decided to debut it. Pictures will be posted another time. I searched the internet for waffle recipes, simple, basic, easy-to-prepare waffle recipes. I don't beat egg whites!
After a while I noticed a basic formula:
- 2 cups flour
- 2 Tablespoons sugar, so sue me I used half a cup
- 2 cups of milk
- 2 eggs, I used 3, since the ones I buy are small
- 1/2 cup oil
- baking powder
Now, I used wholewheat flour, because that's what we have. I also used brown, dark brown, sugar, because it's tastier with the dark flour.
Actually, this is identical to pancakes. So, just think of waffles as textured pancakes. It's all in the "presentation," or "packaging."
Like for a cake, first I mixed the dry ingredients and then added the liquids. I mixed everything but not "too much."
The waffle iron seemed to have lost its instructions, and I tried searching on the internet. I could find the machine, but all it said was:
So, I'm reporting. It's a Krup 2-waffle, and I couldn't figure out how to get the cooking parts out, without breaking the machine. During my internet search I did come up with something similar, where the site had a question:
"Do you want to be the first to report about this waffle maker?"
"How do you clean the wafflemaker if you can't take it apart and can't submerge it in water?"
I wiped it all with a damp paper towel, plugged it in, and it began to heat up. No, there isn't an on/off switch. Of course, what can I expect when we got it for nothing?
The first batch is better left where I left it, in the garbage. But after that it got better, though my husband kept asking why it wasn't crispy. Silicon cooking utensils don't get the food as crispy as old-fashioned stainless steel.
We ate them with maple-flavored sugar syrup. So, if you'd like to come for jblogger waffles, please bring some real maple syrup or other/better stuff for the waffles.
