Yogurt Waffles

Standard

Anytime anyone starts talking about waffles I hear Donkey from Shrek in my head:

“We can stay up late, swapping manly stories, and in the morning, I’m making waffles!”

If I want to feel old I think about the fact that the first Shrek came out the same year my sister-in-law was born.  But I’d rather not think about that.

Because I’m making waffles!!

I don’t make homemade from scratch waffles very often.  I am not sure why.  They aren’t any harder than homemade pancakes and are delicious.  Plus the waffle maker is just fun!

This is a good basic everyday waffle recipe; chewy and flavorful.

Yogurt Waffles

Adapted from The Smitten Kitchen

Serves 2

 

1 cup flour

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp sugar

3/4 tsp baking soda

1 cup plain yogurt (thinned with a little milk)

1 egg (separated)

2 tbsp butter (melted and cooled)

1/4 tsp vanilla

 

Combine the dry ingredients (flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda) in a small mixing bowl. Mix together the yogurt (thinned with a little milk) and the egg yoke.

Stir in the butter and the vanilla, then add to the dry mixture.

Spray your waffle maker with a little Pam and preheat.

Beat the egg white to soft peaks and gently fold them into the batter.

Spoon a ladleful or so of batter into the waffle iron and bake according to your waffle maker’s instructions.

You can keep the one you just made warm in a low oven while you repeat the process with the rest of the batter.

Spread with some butter and syrup and enjoy!
