sunday morning waffles

sunday morning brunch

Waffles are a standard in our home. I'm sure that, of all of the wedding gifts we received, the waffle iron has gotten the most use. Here's my recipe, which has evolved over the years:

Makes 5-6 waffles, depending on the size of your waffle iron.

1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tbs ground flax seed
2  eggs
1 3/4 cups Stonyfield organic "Banilla" lowfat yogurt
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside. Separate the egg whites from the yolks, placing the whites in a bowl to be whisked and the yolks in another bowl that will accommodate all of the wet ingredients. With a hand-held mixer, whip the egg whites until they stiffen. I like to try the "if I turn the bowl upside down do they still stick there" test. (Bummer for you, though, if you haven't whipped them enough!)

Mix all of the wet ingredients together with the egg yolks. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir. Fold in the whipped egg whites and pour the required amount onto your waffle iron.

Top with a dollop of yogurt and berries. (I heat up frozen, organic berries in the off-season).
