I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Waffles

My family loves to have Brupper, 'breakfast at supper time' (I have to give my friend Elaine credit for that word). A nice hot waffle and a dab of butter melting into the square crevices, a little syrup, top it off with homemade whipped cream and a few strawberries and presto, something yummy for your tummy!




WAFFLES (serves 6-8)

Ingredients:
*2 eggs
*1 3/4 cups buttermilk
*1/2 cup vegetable oil
*2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
*2 tablespoons sugar
*2 cups flour
*4 teaspoons baking powder
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:
~Preheat waffle iron.
~Beat eggs in medium size bowl until fluffy.
~Beat in milk, vegetable oil, sugar, and vanilla, just until mixed.
~Sift flour, baking powder, & salt into wet ingredients and mix until smooth. (Do not over beat or they will not be fluffy)
~Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray.
~Pour mix onto hot waffle iron.
~Cook until golden brown.
~Serve hot.

Variations:
`1/4 cup pecan chips, 1/4 cup apple (grated very small), 1/4 teaspoon allspice, 1/4 cup brown sugar, add 1/4 cup more milk; mix all in before cooking.
`1/2 cup blueberries, mix in before cooking or put on top after cooking.
`1 cup raspberries, to go on top of waffle after cooking.
`1 cup chocolate chips, mixed in before cooking.
`1 cup banana, mixed in before cooking.
`1 cup of pumpkin puree, mixed in before cooking.

Helpful Hint: Make up a batch or two and freeze them. On a busy morning pop some in the toaster.

If you don't have buttermilk add one 1 tablespoon white vinegar to milk and let it sit for 10 minutes.

I LOVE breakfast for dinner...one of my favorites. I love waffles too...and strawberries - just bought a bunch today as a matter of fact!

Have you ever tried gingerbread waffles? I got a recipe for it around Christmas time and wanted to try it but haven't yet.

I am jealous of whoever is getting all of these meals from the "test kitchen".
