If you are planning on a house filled with guests this upcoming summer season, waffles are a crowd pleaser. It is always a request, prior to guests arriving at my house. I guess I'm wanted for more than just my good company. I always say, your only as good as your next meal. And, good meals are always remembered.
TIP: I make the batter the night before, it gives the gluten in the flour time to rest, making lighter textured waffles. The only step you will need to do prior to baking the waffles is whip + fold-in the egg whites.
Blueberries, add them to the batter or serve on-top to get your daily dose of antioxidants.
KitchenAid Pro-Line Waffle Maker: The impressive feature of this waffle maker is its dual-sided baking capacity for plating-up continuous hot waffles. For more information on this product from GOOD STUFF.
