What are your thoughts on breakfast for dinner (i.e., brinner)? Sean and I are big, big fans. In fact, we had brinner tonight! I’ve made these waffles a few times now, and they’re fantastic every single time. They’re a “classic” version of waffles that can easily be dressed up any which way you choose. Want to add other spices? Maybe some chocolate chips or nuts? Feel like going crazy with toppings? Do it.
I found this recipe on the blog Average Betty.
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbs baking powder
- 1 1/2 tbs sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 3/4 cups milk
- 2 egg yolks, beaten
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 egg whites, whipped until stiff
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
Pour the milk, beaten egg yolks, vegetable oil, and vanilla over the flour mixture. Whisk until just combined. The batter will be lumpy; never fear.
Gently fold the egg whites into the batter. The batter will still be lumpy. This is still okay.
Pour batter into your waffle maker and cook until they reach the desired color.
Top with whatever your heart desires. I went with butter and syrup for these photos, and then later sprinkled them with mini chocolate chips.
