Vanilla Yogurt Whole Wheat Waffles – Amazing How Simpleon June 18th, 2014 Posted in Home Made Cooking | Sweets
Who doesn’t like homemade waffles? everyone does! whether you serve it with sour cream, fruits, cream, chocolate syrup, scrambled eggs or plain, they are just so good!
2 years ago my sweet hubby bought me a waffle maker and ever since, the family enjoys waffle breakfasts every few weeks.
Up until now what I used to do, is make the basic waffle mix (you know, flour, sugar, baking powder etc.) from the waffle maker instructions book and keep it in a container in the cupboard, and add the wet ingredients to it when I needed to make waffles. This time I decided – no more! I’m better than this, I can make my own waffle recipe – so I did.
If you’ve been reading this blog you should know by now that other than using experience and common sense in my recipes, I also make sure I use whatever’s in my fridge, and this time it was no different. The yogurt I had (I use goat yogurt but you can use any plain yogurt) made the waffles so crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, and the smell was divine.
Yogurt generally reacts super good with baking powder so combining these two in the recipe added fluffiness and softness to the waffles.
And you want to know something else that’s awesome? no mixer required here and the batter can be mixed used one bowl and one whisker/fork so this is really a no brainer.
Oh don’t thank me – just turn your waffle maker on and get to work.
- 1 ½ Cups Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 Tbsp Sugar
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- Pinch of Salt
- 2 Eggs
- ½ Cup Plain Yogurt
- ½ Cup Sour Cream
- ¾ Cup Milk
- 80gr Melted Butter
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- In a bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together until combined,
- Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well until everything is fully combined and incorporated into smooth batter.
- Preheat your waffle maker and once it’s ready to use, pour in ⅓ cup batter (or the amount recommended to be used in your waffle maker - depending on its size and instruction book) and close it.
- Let the waffle bake for about 3-4 minutes and once it’s ready, remove to an oven rack to avoid sogginess.
