from Scratch…

Lately I have gotten into the habit of using my bisques mix when whipping up a batch of waffles, usually to save on time, either because have slept waaaaay and I have to hurry and get breakfast on the table before it’s lunchtime, or we are about to be late to church. Last Sat. morning convinced me that the extra 5 minutes it takes to make waffles from scratch is more than worth it. Instead of the usual gulping down of the dry/ bland bisquickies with a glass of milk and half a bottle of syrup…the waffles were moist and tasted good even without butter and syrup. Fresh strawberries and whip cream didn’t seem to hurth though. David and I just couldn’t stop " mmmm-ing " over them. . In fact I was impressed enough that I haven’t forgotten (and it’s Thursday) how much I want share this recipe with you:

Waffles From Scratch-

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted

1) In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Combine egg yolks, milk and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

2) In a small mixing bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form; gently fold into batter

3) Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown. Top with confectioners’ sugar and fruit or serve with syrup.

Yield: 4 waffles(about 6 inches)

  1. my BOYS are big waffle makers. (14 and 16 years old.) i should MAKE them try this.

  2. oh that looked so good…
    :o) smiles are free and contagious…so pass one right now to the people you love and those you don\’t…soon everyone will be smiling… :o)

  3. Holy moly…that looks great. I CANNOT believe that you get up and cook every morning.  WOWEEE!!  I don\’t EVER cook, much less breakfast, besides, they feed us breakfast at school in the classrooms and there is always one left for me.  So, in my district, parents don\’t have to cook.

  4. Hello!  Those waffles look delish!  Our big weekend tradition is pancakes.  I make them with yogurt so they are wonderfully light and fluffy.  We often do syrup, but occasionally we have them with strawberries, sour cream and brown sugar on top.  The sweet and tart of the combination is tasty.  And I love your inspiration friday!  Big Hug!

  5. I love waffles and those look positively delicous! Will try! Also, Annabelle looks so adorable. She is really gorgeous as well as yourself. What a beautiful family you have Chelle
    love and blessings to you

  10. They look scrumptious and it\’s making my mouth water just thinking about it. I copied your recipe and thank you for sharing. I am always looking for new recipes to try when I go back out on the river. I have to aggree that the bisquick recipe leaves alot to be desired when it comes to waffles.
    Hope you have a great day. God bless you and your precious family.~HUGS~Marilyn~
