That’s what I’m asking myself these days as I seek basic recipes that I can use time and again for our weekly meals.
I’ve had great success using Jen’s (Balancing Beauty and Bedlam) recipes including her Homemade French Bread and Homemade Cinnamon Rolls. A couple of weeks ago I tried her Oh Boy Waffles and they were a hit!
My husband proclaimed them some of the best I’d made and my nine-year-old remarked, “I have to admit, they were pretty good.” Trust me, that’s high praise from her!! I’m still working on my seven-year-old, who has a deep-seated love of Eggo waffles, but I have hope that she’ll come around some day!
The original recipe is given below; I halved it since we prefer fresh waffles and that amount of batter makes enough for us. At some point, I may prepare the whole recipe and freeze what we don’t eat.
2 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
2 beaten eggs
2 1/4 cups milk
3/4 cup oil (I used coconut oil)
Stir together dry ingredients. Combine eggs, milk and oil; add to dry ingredients just before baking, beating only until moistened. (Batter will be thin.)
Bake in waffle iron. Makes 10-12.
I’m still looking for the perfect homemade brownie recipe. Please let me know if you have one I should try!
