homemade waffles= YUM!

DH and I recently moved into a new home, and we finally have a patio! This was our first meal using our new bistro set out on the patio- perfect Sunday morning. This is the recipe that came with our GE waffle maker- I must admit, I'm rather a fan :)

MAKES:: 10 medium-sized waffles (may vary by waffle maker)

2 c. flour
2 TB sugar
1 TB baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 3/4 c milk
1/3 c vegetable oil
2 eggs

Combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients. Gradually add wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just blended- do NOT over stir. Pour batter into waffle maker.

- Follow your waffle maker's instructions as to how much batter to add at once.
- We use spelt flour for a low-gluten option.
- If you over stir {aka. create too many bubbles} it will cause problems... I may have had my waffle maker sort of explode on me once- woops! Anyhoo, yea, there will be some bubbles from mixing, of course, but if there's a LOT, just let the batter sit for a little while until it settles down a bit.
- For a blueberry option, after pouring batter into waffle maker, sprinkle fresh blueberries on top! Note, this may cause the waffles to stick to the waffle maker, so putting a little olive oil on the maker before you start may be advised (check your waffle maker's instruction guide first though- not all models may advise using olive oil on the maker).
