Nothing better than a good, old fashioned waffle! Here is an easy recipe for a Swedish version to make in your waffle iron at home, for breakfast or dinner! I make them for a pre race meal, and call them the PRW (Pre Race Waffle). Don't forget the syrup & powdered sugar!
What to get:
  • 2 egg whites & 2 egg yolks
  • 2 cups flour (I use a white wheat in this one)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 T vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
For the Top:
  • butter
  • maple syrup
  • powdered sugar
  • sliced banana
What to do:
  1. Preheat a waffle Iron on High (or to desired setting).
  2. Beat egg whites till firm & set aside.
Make Batter:
  1. Mix flour & baking powder in a bowl of an electric mixer.
  2. To bowl add egg yolks, melted butter, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and ⅔ milk & beat just till smooth.
  3. Add rest of milk and delicately add egg whites, stirring in just before baking on iron.
Make Waffles:
  1. Spray waffle iron well with oil to avoid waffle batter sticking in groves.
  2. Pour enough batter onto bottom side of iron to barely cover griddle. (Be careful not to overfill because it will expand when you shut lid and batter will run down sides!).
  3. Cook about 5 min, or until indicator shows waffle as done (You can cook to desired brownness and crispiness, I like mine crispy on the outside).
  4. Serve with a little butter, lots of syrup and some powdered sugar. I add sliced banana as well. Whipped cream is good too.
Notes:
This is easy and easy to change-up by adding in mashed banana or blueberries into the batter. I use a little vanilla and cinnamon for an extra touch. Also, we don't add sugar into the batter, as we are going to top it with very sweet syrup, so it's not missed!
When I make these the night before a marathon (as the PRW), I do add more salt, in preparation for the race., I have not put that alteration in the above recipe. Best served immediately with lots of pure maple syrup, little butter and powdered sugar on top. This would be excellent with sliced strawberries and whipped cream as a dessert too!
