2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoon baking powder
1 3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all ingredients together. It’ll be a little bit lumpy.
Pour 1/2 cup of battle on each side. Cook 8 minutes or less.
Golden brown will take 8 minutes on our griddle. Later when Dave started helping me the waffles got more and more blond and were in for about 4 minutes, but still cooked.
I suggest using a spray olive oil in between waffles to eliminate sticking.
Using plastic tongs to remove the waffles and never a fork. You don’t want to use metal on your Foreman Grill.
I like this recipe a lot because it tastes more like a real waffle and not just waffles made from left over pancake mix. This however, is not a traditional waffle recipe. The waffle iron makes the waffles crispy like a waffles should be, but traditionally waffles are made with oil and eggs to make them crispy. In traditional recipes you make waffles with egg yolks and the whites are beaten and added just before cooking on the griddle. This makes the waffle batter foaming and the result is a waffle, which is crispy and more airy than heavy pancakes tend to be. I think I’ll explore this idea a little more in the future, but for this weekend this recipe will do just fine on this grill.
