Waffles of insane greatnessPosted: July 18, 2014
I’ve made these awesome waffles before, yet decided to update and repost. These are my husbands favorite. They are crunchy on the outside, nice and soft inside, and have fantastic flavor. So for his recent birthday, I decided to revamp the recipe. I did use most of the ingredients, but had to up the flour a bit and used vanilla bean paste instead to up the vanilla flavor. They were perfect!
3/4 cup all-purpose flour (I used a full cup)
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk or buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used vanilla bean paste)
Butter and syrup, for serving
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix well. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes.
Preheat a waffle iron. Do not use non-stick spray on the waffle iron; the oil in the batter will allow the waffle to release easily. Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles. Serve immediately with butter and syrup.
