Yummy Saturday Morning Waffles!
As a very newly married couple, I am proud to say we have already established a family tradition: Saturday morning waffles and family devotion.
Since our very first Saturday in our new home, we have been taking advantage of our waffle maker (why, yes it was a wedding present) with an awesome recipe that we tweaked from Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything." (which, by the way, is a great cookbook but is even better as a great teaching tool on the basics of cooking. I am happy to report my husband has made wonderful use of it.)
Our Saturday mornings start out with us getting to use two of our favorite appliances.

Healthy, Yummy, Wheat Waffles
1/2 cup whole wheat all purpose flour
1/2 cup white all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup of yogurt thinned with 1/8 cup of milk
1 egg, separated
2 tablespoons butter
Combine the dry ingrediants in a large bowl. In another bowl wisk the yogurt with milk and egg yolk. Stir the butter into this mix. Combine all the ingredients. Then, in a separate bowl, beat the egg white until it holds soft peaks. Fold these into the batter.
Brush the preheated waffle iron with a neutral oil (we use grapeseed oil). Pour 1/3 to 1/2 of the batter into the waffle iron. When the iron is finished (3-5 minutes), enjoy soft, golden waffles.
*We divide our batter to make 3 waffles, we learned the hard way not to overfill your waffle iron*
Top Waffles with honey, agave, or just good ole fashioned Maple Syrup!
