Because I was too tired and uninspired to cook anything awe inspiring tonight I decided on these waffles, and because I was peeling and chopping peaches today for the freezer (previous post) I thought I would try mine with them instead of the usual peanut butter and syrup.
My husband had some of his waffles like this as well and they passed the test for him too.
I didn't have buttermilk but I had some plain yogurt and to fill out the measure of buttermilk I needed I also used regular milk with lemon juice in it. If you let it sit for five minutes it will curdle and thicken like buttermilk. So with the combo of the yogurt and the homemade buttermilk I was good to go with the rest of the ingredients. I added about a ¼ cup of lemon juice to 1¼ cups of milk.
2¼ cups all purpose flour
1½ Tablespoons sugar
1½ teaspoons baking powder
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon baking soda
3 egg yolks
2¼ cups buttermilk
9 Tablespoons butter, melted
3 egg whites, beaten
Sift dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Combine egg yolks and buttermilk, stir in melted butter. Stir until smooth. Stir into dry ingredients until smooth. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Gently fold into batter. Bake in a waffle iron. Serve immediately.
I added a little cinnamon and vanilla to the whipped cream and drizzled a bit of Pure Maple Syrup over the whole thing. With my cup of Green Tea it hit the spot!
Enjoy and Be Blessed!
