Homemade waffles are best made on a lazy Sunday morning….or they might be best made for dinner on a lazy weeknight.  Sometimes, when things get hectic, I give a recipe to my teenager and have her handle dinner.  I find this improves important life skills.  I wrote down the ingredients for this homemade waffle recipe and explained what she needed to do.  She was up for the challenge and when I came back into the kitchen, she had this amazing batter and everything checked off the list of ingredients.

 

 

I love to hand off some of the easier recipes to my daughter.  I only have four more years with her and one of the major life skills is cooking.  So, I always feel good when I hand her a recipe and let her figure it out. I read these old recipes and sometimes I make them as written and sometimes I expand what it says to what I think it should be with our current technology.  I want my daughter to experience that as well.  She did an amazing job!  The bottom line is that I want my girls to cook with basic ingredients and make things at home and not needing to purchase anything they could make themselves.  Waffles fit that!

 

These homemade waffles have an amazing texture.  They are right in between being crispy and chewy.  Cook these waffles a little less and you have a chewy homemade waffle.  Cook these waffles a little more and you have a crispy outside and chewy inside.  I am a firm believer that everyone has their own personal waffle done-ness.  It’s science.  You either like a chewy waffle or you like a crispy waffle with a chewy inside.  I picked up a really great waffle iron that isn’t too hard to use.  If you are in the market for one: this Waffle Iron is a great one!
