Waffles are definitely a weekend breakfast treat - this recipe comes from Christine Cushing. Adding the softly whipped egg whites to the batter will make the waffles nice and fluffy. Serve with pure Canadian maple syrup, fresh berries & whipped cream or pair with blueberry sauce (#78222)...to use Christine's words...wicked! Prep time includes "standing", cook time & # of servings has been estimated - it depends on your waffle iron.
These waffles are delicious, crispy and sweet. They are also nutritious. This recipe came from the Sunset Complete Vegetarian Cook Book. They are especially good with sliced fruit on top. The recipe can be altered without a problem, it is still good if the ratios are not exact.
Way back in the 60s I ran into an old cookbook at the library with this recipe in it. It was written about the 1910s. And they stated this was an old recipe for Flannel Cakes. I wasn't sure about the sugar and the vanilla but the pancakes were thick, light, golden and picture perfect. And they tasted as good as they looked. Been making them ever since. Then I misplaced the recipe a couple years ago. TODAY I found it and I AM NOT LOSING IT AGAIN.
One impressive breakfast main course for special occasions and wonderful for everyday.
