Sofia love love loves Eggo waffles. Se’d eat them every day if we let her, drenched in butter and maple syrup. Only problem, I can’t justify spending money on processed waffles when in reality, I can make them myself. So I went searching for a good freezer friendly waffle recipe. I wanted to be able to freeze the actual waffles and not the batter, as I don’t always have time to pull out the waffle maker, especially living with a girl who believes things should be done instantaneously. I found many recipes and predominantly followed this one, but modified it slightly:
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp cinnamon (optional, I just really like cinnamon)
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups buttermilk
- In a large bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt.
- Cream together butter and brown sugar, then beat in eggs. Add in milk and flour mixture (add additional flour if you find batter is too thin).
- Heat up waffle iron and cook until golden brown.
- Eat and enjoy!
After using up batter I wrapped each waffle individually in plastic, but you could always freeze them together in one big batch. Don’t worry about unthawing when it comes to eating them, as they toast up perfectly from frozen state (just like Eggos!); and believe it or not, I believe they taste almost better after being frozen and toasted. But maybe that’s just me.
I combined my breakfast with a side of grapefruit and tea. Delish! How do you enjoy your waffles?
