I haven't made waffles for years. This is because Porter doesn't particularly care for them, I find them too unhealthy to go through the bother for, and no one else cared before.
Yesterday my daughter wanted waffles. She wanted 'em bad.
I have an old belgium waffle iron that we got as a wedding present 7 years ago. I had sliced strawberries and whipped cream in the fridge. I got a recipe off the internet that looked decent and set out.
Now, it doesn't matter if it is a beglium waffle or a regular one, for some reason I can never get them perfect. You know, to fill in the whole shape, edges and top.
This time I had to deal with the whole separating eggs issue. I never know if I folded them back together well enough. This time an emergency forced me to wait, and the batter began to separate back out again on its own. To make matters worse, while I usually get some runoff, this time it was insane!
In the end, they were flat, flabby and eggy, not crisp and fluffy. So how do you do it, Hatrack, how do you make a perfect waffle? Is it a dream to which no mere mortal can hope to aspire?
I didn't know waffles were hard. My dad makes the kind with the small ridges, not the Belgian kind. He uses the bisquick method with buttermilk. Mmmmm.
