waffling around

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

As you can see from this picture above, I lied about eating more healthily. Actually, maybe I didn’t. It’s healthier to cook at home versus going out to eat, so I’ve succeeded in that sense.

Anyway, the Boyfriend cooked up a large batch of my favorite fried chicken for dinner for Davis on Thursday night. He didn’t cook it all though since only about 10-15 people show up for dinner, so there was still some raw chicken with marinade leftover.

Come Friday morning. I realize that Davis has a waffle press, but I have never used it. (In fact, I have never used a waffle press to actually cook a waffle). With great elation and joy, we had a totally indulgent brunch of fried chicken and waffles (okay, so maybe I totally have failed at this “healthy thing”).

He took a nibble out of his waffle already...

He fried the chicken, I made the waffles. Since I’ve never actually made waffles before, I googled “simple waffle recipe” and found this gem. With almost 2000 reviews and a 4.5 star rating, I figured it would be good. The waffles turned out perfectly. Not too salty, not too sweet, but I recommend changing those measurements around depending on what you’re eating it with. When I made the waffles for the fried chicken, I cut back slightly on the sugar to make a more savory waffle. When I made waffles this morning for breakfast (the recipe was so good I wanted to try it again) I used the recommended amount of sugar and had waffles with strawberries, whipped cream cheese and syrup.

Yeah, I really fail at this healthy thing. Whatever #yolo

Perfect Waffles

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of butter (melted, shouldn’t be too hot)
  • 1 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar (add more for a sweeter waffle)
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt (add more for a more savory waffle)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Heat up waffle iron.
  2. Beat eggs in a large bowl until very fluffy.
  3. Combine the rest of the ingredients in the bowl until just mixed.
  4. Grease the surface of the waffle iron, whatever this means to you. Could be spraying a non-stick cooking spray, or you could apply butter on the surfaces of the pan.
  5. Pour around 1/2 – 3/4 cup of batter into the iron and close it. The waffles will poof up quite a bit. Cook until golden brown. Serve immediately.*

*If you’re making a bunch at once and can’t serve them right as they’re being made, place the waffles onto folded paper towels. Replace the paper towels often as they will absorb quite a bit of moisture and make the waffle less crisp.
