To make waffles the way the actual American grand mothers make, I had to pick up the recipe NOT from famous food blogs, but from personal blogs created by foodie lovers who actually live there and make it every weekend. Authentic recipes are passed along generations and no five star hotel can match this taste.
Recipes are as much about procedure as much about the ingredients and the portions.I picked up this recipe from a very good blog in Pinterest and tried it, sharing the same here.
All purpose flour - 2 cups
Milk - 1 and 3/4 cup
Eggs - 2
Baking Powder - 1 tablespoon
Sugar - 2 tablespoons
Butter - 2 tablespoons
Salt - A pinch
Beat the 2 eggs separately until really fluffy and light.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Fold the dry ingredients into the egg, whisking continuously, followed by the milk and finally, the butter. Mix till all ingredients come together forming a thick batter. Let this rest for 5 minutes. At the same time, heat the waffle iron coating with a spray of butter or cooking oil. Let the iron heat up for 5 minutes.
Pour the waffle batter onto the iron, spreading it evenly. Follow the instructions as per the manufacturer. The waffle should look crispy golden brown and it is ready to eat.
I found this to be as good as the one with yeast as well. But this one turned out to be just perfect.
