If you want waffles, try this simple imitation recipe; you won’t be able to tell the difference. With maple syrup, butter, and chocolate chips, serve.
Homemade WafflesCuisine: breakfast
1 ½ cups flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup salted butter, softened, plus more for serving
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup half-and-half
½ cup buttermilk
pure maple syrup, and/or chocolate chips, for serving
- In a mixing basin, combine the flour, cornstarch, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
- In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, butter, and vanilla extract until smooth. Incorporate the half-and-half and buttermilk. Stir in the flour mixture until barely mixed and a few lumps remain. (Avoid overmixing.) Chill for at least 1 hour or up to overnight, covered.
- Preheat the waffle maker to medium-high heat and gently coat with cooking spray. 2/3 cup batter should be poured onto waffle iron. 4 to 6 minutes, or until golden and crisp on the edges. Place on a platter and keep heated. Rep with the remaining batter.
- Waffles can be topped with maple syrup, chocolate chips, and/or more butter.
