Sunday Morning Waffles

I'm possibly the laziest person when it comes to Sunday. It is usually my one day of the week I don't have work, I have no errands, and I do my best to not have plans. I like to call them Pajama Sundays. It is my day of zen. And eating. 

Today I whipped up some delicious waffles. This is a recipe that is in my upcoming book- The Nanny Recipes. This recipe takes waffles a slight step further by whipping the egg whites. For busy parents- this might be super annoying- so just don't do it. But I like the lightness it adds to the waffles and if you can get the kids to whisk the egg whites for you- even better. 

Sunday Waffles
1 cup of milk
2 eggs, separated 
3 tablespoons melted butter 

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon of white vinegar 
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract 
1/4 cup of canola/vegetable oil
Canola oil spray 

Waffle maker 
3 mixing bowls
Mixing spatula 
Measuring cups/spoons

Preheat the waffle maker while making the batter. 

In the first bowl add the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix well.

In the second bowl add the milk and white vinegar first. Allow to sit for a minute and then add the vanilla, canola oil, egg yolks, and melted butter. Mix well. 

In the third bowl whisk the egg whites until they are frothy and soft peaks form. It should take less than a minute of fast whisking. But let the kids have fun and do this job! 

Mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients into one bowl. Then slowly fold in the egg whites. 

Spray your waffle maker with canola oil and pour in batter. Remember the batter does spread once you close the lid so don't overfill the waffle maker. I like to cook mine for 4 minutes- but all waffle makers are different so check after a couple minutes. 

Enjoy with some fresh fruit, jams, butter, syrup, confectioners sugar- whatever strikes your fancy! Just get outta bed, stay in your pajamas and make it!! Xo
