It is probably something I should have gotten a while ago.
A waffle iron!
Since I am me, I couldn’t start with a boring, plain waffle.
I started out with a waffle that had a nice, crisp outside. I cannot stand a soggy waffle. The sugar in this recipe allows it to get nice and crisp on the outside.
Brown Sugar Waffles (makes 4 7-8″ waffles)
1 3/4 C All Purpose Flour
1/4 C Light Brown Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Mix in the eggs, buttermilk, and butter until just combined.
Fill the waffle iron according to the manufacture’s directions. For mine, a scant 3/4 C fills it perfectly.
Cook the waffle according to your manufacture’s instructions. 4 minutes seems to be perfect for mine. The best judge is when the steam stops coming from the waffle iron.
I like my waffles a little on the well-done side, so I cooked mine a little bit longer.
Serve topped with your favorite topping. I went with lots of butter and Log Cabin syrup (which is now thankfully free from high fructose corn syrup).
