Momma Katie's waffle memory: This recipe started with my mom. I am not sure where she got it. I never remember not eating them, so she had to have used this recipe from the time I was very young. All that tried them loved them. I remember the smell of them cooking on her large square heavily used chrome waffle iron. She always melted the butter and heated the syrup to go on the waffles.
Stace's waffle memory: I remember mom making us homemade waffles for breakfast and sometimes dinner (a recipe passed down from her mother, that I now use every Saturday); she would stand above the waffle iron, passing out waffles to grabbing children below; we went back for seconds and thirds before she even sat down with her first. I always ate mine plain with butter—no syrup. They were that good.
2 cups flour
3 T sugar
3 t baking powder
1 t salt
4 T butter (melted)
2 eggs (separate yolks from whites)
1 ½ cups milk
• Combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl, sift together or mix thoroughly
• Add wet ingredients (butter, egg yolks and milk) and stir (batter will be lumpy)
• Beat egg whites until fluffy
• Fold into waffle mix right before pouring
• Pour about a ½ cup of mix onto waffle iron and cook
• Top waffles with just butter or load them up with peanut butter, syrup and bananas. Some of our kids like them with chocolate chips, strawberries and whipped cream.
