So much so that I would throw big Waffle Friendship Parties, and some of my friends called me 'waffles' in High School...is that embarrassing? Should I have not told you that?
Probably shouldn't have, but it gets my point across.
What I'm trying to tell you, is that I have made a lot of different waffles in my life and I've tried even more, and when I tell you that this is the most deliciously, perfect, fluffy, divine, impress-all-your-friends, scrumbditiliuptious waffle heaven, you should believe me.
Without further ado, my favorite recipe:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Slice strawberries into a bowl, sprinkle with a tiny bit of sugar, just so a bit of syrup can develop. Cover and place in fridge.
2. Prepare Waffles: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Make a well in the center of the mixture; set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Pour into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir just until moistened; batter will be slightly lumpy.
3. Take ice-cream out, so it can soften a bit.
4. Preheat a Belgian waffle iron and spray with nonstick spray. Bake until waffles are completely done (you want them a bit crispy). Use a fork to remove finished waffles. Repeat with remaining batter.
5. When the waffles are ready, spread on ice-cream, scoop on berries and drizzle a bit of maple syrup. Use as much or as little as you’d like.
6. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
