Waffles have been made for centuries and there are many variations or recipes throughout the world.
Soft or crunchy, fluffy or chewy, thick or thin we love them all.
I like to use spelt flour in my recipe since we try to incorporate more ancient grains in our diet for health benefits. The amount of waffles you can make with this recipe varies by the type of waffle iron you use.
2 cups spelt flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar
2 eggs (medium size)
1 1/2 cups warm milk
6 Tbsp melted butter
How to make the batter and cook the waffles
- You will need two large bowls.
- In the first bowl combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and vanilla sugar).
- In the second bowl combine the warm milk, melted butter and eggs. I like to whisk in one ingredient at a time.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk until everything is well blended and you have a smooth dough.
- Preheat your waffle iron. Mine works perfect on medium heat but it always depends on the type of waffle iron you have.
- Scoop the batter into your waffle iron and cook the waffles until they are golden brown.
- Serve immediately plain or with your favorite toppings or cool on a cooling rack.
Our favorite toppings
We love to eat our waffles with toppings. Some of our favorites are maple syrup or honey, hazelnut cream, powdered sugar, fresh or frozen berries.
Storing and to reheat
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or you can freeze them in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months.
To reheat and crisp use the toaster oven or toaster.
While making waffles my daughter and I had the splendid idea of making chocolate waffles. To half of our dough we mixed in 4 Tbsp. cocoa powder before baking them and they turned out delicious.
