I’ve been nostalgic about waffles ever since I left Turkey (yes, I know, that’s a strange place to initiate waffle-nostalgia). I think it’s because their version of waffles is a super-loaded version which believes in putting all the deliciousness in the world – nutella, strawberries, bananas, oranges, kiwis, chocolate syrup, a few scoops of ice cream – all on one waffle! So this morning, we decided to re-create part of it.
Here’s the recipe. (It makes 6 waffles)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 and 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup peanut butter chips (optional)
A cup of blueberries/strawberries
1. Preheat waffle iron (I used a Belgian waffle iron). Beat the eggs in a large bowl until fluffy. Beat in flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla, just until smooth.
2. Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray.
3. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Make sure you don’t over-pour because once the iron is closed, it might spill out. Sprinkle the mix (while on the iron) with chocolate chips and/or peanut butter chips. Close the iron.
3. Cook until golden brown. Serve with any of the
