Sunday Smile: 6am Waffles

Much like my 1am Pancake post, this 6am Waffle post came about post-tweet. I've been awake since 3am this fine Sunday, and by 5am was feeling the need to start my day. With waffles.  I tweeted my thought, and how I really would rather be sleeping, when someone tweeted back 'Mmmm...waffles! Yes I'd ditch sleep for waffles! You can always have a little nap after waffles :)'. That's all it took for me to get up & fulfill my waffle destiny! (thanks Hey Harriet!)


There's Grace at the kitchen table, pretty sure she's a human & it's waffle time for her too.


"Oh Boy Waffles" (my family recipe)
2 1/2 cup flour
4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp sale
1 1/2 tblsp sugar
2 beaten eggs
2 1/4 cup milk
3/4 c vegetable oil (I always use less)

Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl. In separate container, combine beaten eggs, milk & oil (I sometimes add a titch of vanilla). Combine liquid & dry ingredients together just before baking. Beat until smooth (I often have lumps, and they turn out just fine).  Bake in a hot waffle iron. I always butter my iron prior to putting the batter on. Makes about 10 waffles.

I half the recipe when making them for just a couple of people.
Add a dash of cinnamon on top & a bit of syrup, and you're ready to eat!

Now for that post-waffle nap...

  1. Your adorable Grace looks as sweet as those waffles! I'm impressed that you make your waffles from scratch. I must try your recipe (I cheat & buy the frozen ones) one day. Enjoy your post-waffle nap! xo

  2. I have frozen waffles in the freezer, but forgot about them! ha! If I'd known, I would've eaten them happily. But, the Oh Boy Waffles are pretty easy to put together, even though it sounds tedious. :)
