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)
1.5 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.
