The Dish: Eggnog Waffles

I have this thing where I absolutely positively will NOT eat a Mandarin(Christmas) Orange  until December 1st. Why? I actually can't remember right off the top of my head... but I just don't do it, so there must be a good reason. Eggnog however, does not fall onto my imaginary pre-december no no list, so hey, let's make some waffles!   Go grab some eggnog and try this waffle recipe on a cold snowy morning.

So here's what you need:

  • one and a half cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • one and a half tbsp sugar
  • eggnog
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • one and a half tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

So first off get your tea going, along with the waffle iron so that everything is ready to go when the batter is all done. I always get ahead of myself and  make the batter first, then stand around waiting for everything else to catch up!

So add all the wet ingredients to a bowl and mix it all up

Then mix all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. I added a little of the cane sugar just because. Once they are all added together, mix it all up so there won't be any surprise pockets of cinnamon or...baking power. Only baking powder that is MAGIC will do, by the way.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl and stir together, but don't over stir! Just enough to get things nicely mixed.

Here's Casey staring longingly at the syrup. We recommend real maple syrup, but alas we were fresh out.
