waffle

Yet another month almost to its end… Summer is going so fast!!

I usually make pancakes every Sunday for brunch but last weekend I was feeling a bit bored about the regular ones and decided for something more “sophisticated” : waffles! (HA! Not that chic but hey, they are more troublesome to make.. right?)

And for the toppings… I generously covered  them with fresh juicy strawberries and syrup, just in time for June´s  #twitterfoodparty ! This month´s theme is our beloved all-time-favorite-summer-fruit: strawberry ^_^ (Finnish strawberries are delicious!)

Waffles

adapted from Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, similar to this recipe

Yield 8-12 servings, according to your waffle iron

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar (the recipe calls for two tbsp but I put less)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs, yolks separated
  • 1 3/4 cups milk (I used without lactose)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.

In another bowl or jug, mix the milk, egg yolks, butter and vanilla.

Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Combine the milk mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir until just moistened (the batter should still be slightly lumpy). Fold the egg whites to the batter gently.

Pour 1 cup of  batter onto grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle iron machine. Bake according to manufacturers directions.

When done (golden and crispy), lift waffle off grid (I use chopsticks ^_^)

Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with your favorite jam, fresh fruits and syrup
