Sometime, a person needs a waffle.
Our household recently received a rather new waffle iron and it fell to yours truly to give it a test run. Here are some notes if you ever find yourself in a similar position.
1) Spray on oil is your friend, but try not to overdo it.
2) Take the recommended about of batter and add anywhere between 10 – 20% before pouring. An incomplete waffle is a sad thing to witness.
3) Ignore any timer or “ready lights” on said waffle maker as it’s easier to eyeball if a waffle is done or not.
4) Say the word “Waffle” as many times as possible, as it’s a fun word to speak aloud, and has the added benefit of either amusing or annoying any cooking compatriots.
- 1 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs
- 6 Tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1 banana, pureed or mashed
Turn on waffle maker,and allow to come to temperature.
In one bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, melted butter and milk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until all of the ingredients are incorporated into a batter. Add the banana and mix in as well.
Ensure that each side of the waffle is oiled or buttered. Ladle the appropriate amount of batter onto the waffle iron, close and allow to cook until slightly golden, about 4-6 minutes depending on the iron.
