Belgian Waffles

You know what one of the benefits of getting married is? New kitchen gadgets!!!!!!!! Oh yea, and gaining a lifelong partner to share the joys of life and family and all that jazz.  But seriously, so many gifts.  It's like Christmas times a gazillion.  So the next few posts will be of me trying out all of the new goodies.  Like our waffle iron:
Thanks, Marcus!
Recipe from the St. John's church recipe book, a bridal shower gift.  This church is where both Reid's grandparents were members and where Reid's parents got married.


Belgian Waffles
Ingredients:

  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/2 tbs. melted butter
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tbs. sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
Directions:

  1. Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Beat whites until stiff; set aside.
  3. Add egg yok, butter and milk to the dry ingredents an dmix thoroughly.
  4. Stir 1/4 of the egg white into the batter to lighten it and gently fold in the remaining egg white.
  5. Bake according to directions for waffle baker.
  6. Coconut, nuts, or chocolate chips can be sprinkled over top before baking.  I chose to have slices of bananas and milk chocolate chips top one of my waffles, and strawberry sauce topped the other.  Strawberry sauce was made by reducing down 1/4 c. strawberries, 1/8 c. water, 3tbs sugar, and 1 tsp orange liquor in a sauce pan over medium-low heat.
