Monday's Meal

At the suggestion by my youngest son, M. I'm sharing my recipe for waffles, actually his suggestion was that we have breakfast for dinner everyday, lol!

Here you go,belgian waffles. Super easy recipes and is easily doubled or tripled. Oh and they freeze well too. I sometimes make a bunch to freeze and they make a nice quick breakfast on those busy school mornings. The perfect combo of crispy yet fluffy goodness.

2 cups of cake flour (I just usually use all purpose, but cake would be lighter)
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup of buttermilk
1 cup of milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup melted butter (yep! butter baby!)

Nonstick cooking spray for your waffle iron. Preheat waffle iron.
Mix all the dry ingredients together, make a well in the center and add the liquid ingredients in order, mix just until combined but don't overmix. The batter will be slightly lumpy.
Pour approx 1/2 cup of batter or the amount needed to almost feel the waffle iron slot. Cook till done, should be light golden brown. Enjoy!

Oh and to kick it up a notch you could top w/fresh fruits and homemade whipped cream or confectioners' sugar.

Whipped cream

1 cup of heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp of confectioners' sugar
1 tsp of vanilla extract
