This recipe comes from The Joy of Cooking. It’s a great basic waffle recipe. They also note that you can make it reduced fat by using only 4 tbsp of butter, or extra crispy and decadent by using 16 tbsp of butter. You can also add things to the batter to customize your waffles (about 1/2 cup total) – dried or fresh fruit, chocolate chips, bacon, or anything else you think would sound good. We just stuck with plain delicious waffles today and a fried egg on the side.

Makes about 12 6-inch diameter waffles

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 large eggs
8 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 1/2 cups milk

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In another bowl, beat the eggs well. Whisk the butter and milk into the eggs, then dump the wet ingredients into the dry ones. Stir together with a few strokes to combine. There will still be lumps in the batter when you’re done.

Heat your waffle iron, and when it’s ready add the manufacturer’s recommended amount of batter (mine takes 1/4 cup). Close the lid and cook until the waffle is golden brown. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree F oven.
