After a holiday hiatus from my kitchen, I started the day strong with some prepwork for an upcoming cooking event. Once I got into my “zone,” I decided to play with a new kitchen toy my husband got me – a waffle iron!
I had a lot of fun making a few different varieties, which will all be frozen for quick breakfasts in the coming weeks. They were extremely easy to make and the batter is very verasatile to use as waffles or pancakes.
Here’s the basic recipe for a baking mix I used. To make waffles using this baking mix, I used the following:
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 1/2 cup french vanilla creamer (which I found made the batter richer and moist.)
Banana – mashed 1 ripe banana into 1 1/2 cups of batter
Cranberry orange – mix 3/4 cup cranberry orange relish into 2 cups batter
