Do you like waffles????

Yes I like waffles!!!!!!!

It felt like a waffly, brunchy kinda morning today so while daddy was sleeping in my gals and I made waffles with blueberry compote.

Don't you just want to lick the screen?

I made the mistake of buying waffle mix when we first got the waffle maker, I'll only make that mistake once. The recipe I love, love, love to use is the one that came with the waffle iron in the instruction book.
It does dirty a lot of dishes but it is well worth the mess (I believe three bowls, a whisk and my electric hand mixer) and the effort!

Bella Cucina waffles

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs, separated
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in bowl. (Bowl 1)
Use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Sprinkle in the sugar and continue to beat until stiff. (Bowl 2)
Use the mixer to blend egg yolks, milk and vegetable oil together (Bowl 3)
Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk together until just mixed.
Gently fold the egg white mixture into the batter.
My waffle iron uses approx. 1 cup of this mixture per waffle and made 5 very large waffles for our family of four.

Blueberry compote.
Recipe from

2 cups blueberries ( I used frozen)
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tbsp water

Add above ingredients to saucepan, cook over med - low heat for 10 - 12 minutes or until liquid has thickened enough to stick to a spoon.
