The Weekly Waffle

I know.  We didn't make waffles last weekend.  We ate leftover cupcakes and brownies instead.  I am making it up to you today.  This is a short but sweet post.  Some waffles need few words.  These are the best waffles I have ever made.  There, now do you feel better?  From food52.com I give you:

Aretha Frankenstein's Waffles of Insane Greatness

3/4 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup buttermilk or whole milk (or a mix--I used buttermilk)

1/3 cup vegetable oil or melted butter (I used oil)

1 egg

1.5 tsp sugar

3/4 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients and let sit 30 minutes. Cook.

The thirty minute wait would have been a deal breaker if I left it up to Sophie.  Happily we realized that good, and I mean really good, things come to those who wait.  Sophie couldn't stop exclaming over their crispy exteriors and light as air interiors.  I will have to force myself to make a different waffle next week.

I had mine with peach butter, and then another one with maple syrup because they were that good.
