How about serving these in the middle of winter, maybe the morning of the annual ice-skating party with the kids in the neighborhood or the 4-H club? And you don't even need a campfire! Thanks to the good ladies over at Gooseberry Patch for their inventive recipe-making skills!
We love weekend breakfasts around our house. Belgian Waffles has always been a favorite, especially for my son, JB! You will find all sorts of variations for this recipe, one of which I'm sure will suit your needs! These waffles will come out light, crisp and toast to a golden brown. We love to top ours with strawberries or blueberries, powdered sugar and whipped cream, blueberry syrup & real maple syrup!... And You didn't think weekends could get anymore special!
This is one of my adopted recipes. I adopted it towards the end of 2005 because it brought back many happy memories. I have altered it just a little by using melted butter in place of the shortening and by mixing the egg, milk & butter together before adding to the dry ingredients. I have also added how to cook them for those new to cooking :) My Mother In Law used to make pancakes for my girls when they were young as a treat when we visited. They always had them with lemon juice (she had a wonderful large lemon tree) and sprinkled them with sugar. :)
The cooking time is approximate.
*Oooops!! Thanks to Sara for her review which alerted me to a mistake which I have now corrected. It should be 1 & 1/2 cups flour not 3!!!!
NOTE* I sometimes add more milk to get a thinner batter that will spread more easily when made as large pan sized pancakes.
I adapted this from an Amish recipe. I love them sprinkled with a little confectioner's sugar and served with maple syrup for breakfast. You can also serve them as a side dish. The yield is approximate. Depends on how large or small you make them, and how much corn you put into it.
I made this when I was trying to use up stuff in the refrigerator and it came out pretty good. I used frozen cherries but I think it would be a lot more nutritious using frozen strawberries or other berries.
