While it may sound like a bit of a cliché, in this particular instance there is definitely some proper truth to it, that being that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s about more than just getting in the adequate nutrition to fuel your day’s activities which lie ahead, but also about starting the day off on a good note, so that’s why the ideal breakfast should not take you more than 20 minutes to prepare.
Fortunately the traditional favourite of waffles for breakfast fits that mould perfectly, in that a good breakfast waffle recipe can give you the breakfast boost you really need while it doesn’t take too long to prepare – it can be prepared in 20 minutes flat.
The ingredients list is very basic to say the least, so once you’ve gotten the hang of making this breakfast of champions you won’t even have to think twice about things like what goes into the mix and measurements will come naturally to you. The ingredients list for traditional breakfast waffles includes two cups of all-purpose flour, two large eggs, 1 3/4 cups of milk, 1/2 a cup of vegetable oil, four teaspoons of baking powder, one tablespoon of white sugar, a pinch of salt (1/4 teaspoon) and 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
If you like you can add in a pinch of cinnamon for a little bit of a taste variety.
If you prep the ingredients overnight (those which can be prepared overnight, that is), then you’ll save yourself a full five minutes of prep time in the morning, otherwise the actual cooking time is no more than 15 minutes so your breakfast of champs will be ready in no time. Also, the batter can be stored in the fridge, covered for up to two weeks, so you can make it once and then simply pour it into the waffle maker whenever you crave a waffle breakfast again – you can get yours at www.expondo.co.uk.
Otherwise the preparation method is just as basic as the ingredients which go into the making of these traditional breakfast waffles.
Depending on how quickly your waffle iron heats up, you may or may not have to pre-heat it while you beat the eggs in a large bowl, using a hand beater until they display a fully consistency. Next, beat in the milk, flour, sugar, vegetable oil, salt, vanilla extract and baking powder until the mixture turns smooth. Don’t continue beating once the mixture has turned smooth as you don’t want to have waffles which are a bit too heavy.
Some modern waffle makers available today come with a built-in non-stick property, in which case you won’t have to use non-stick cooking spray, otherwise as the waffle iron is heating up when you preheat it, spray on the non-stick cooking spray.
Next, simply pour in the mix onto the waffle iron, making sure to pour it in when the iron is already hot and not while it’s still heating up as this may just cause uneven cooking.
A golden-brown colour is what you’d be looking for to indicate the waffles are ready and enjoy them hot!
