It’s Friday morning and I’m on a plane to some place warm… by myself… to meet up with some of my favorite blogging buddies. Eeek. So excited. Where you ask… Orlando! Sun, warmth, good times, good people and hopefully some super amazing food and probably a drink or two. Want to follow along with my adventures this weekend? Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter. I’ll be sharing tons of pictures and random Twitter updates.

I really hope I didn’t forget anything. I’m a worrier like that. I’ll make lists, cross things off and still forget something – either because it was one of those random list minute things I forgot to pack or it just never made it on the list because I didn’t think of it. I’m not going some place in the middle of nowhere, unlike last November, but I still wonder if I’ve left something behind. I don’t want to spend $10 for something I can get for $2 at home. Total exaggeration but you get what I mean. Or there’s the other what ifs… did I pack right for the weather? It’s going to be in the high 80’s while we’re down there. This week it’s been in the 60’s in New Hampshire. My ghostly white skin isn’t ready for this, nor is my hair which I’m sure will get super frizzy from the humidity but I’m still excited.

You know what else is exciting? These waffles. I LOVE waffles. I’m not talking about the frozen variety either, even though we typically have those on hand for easy consumption. I’m talking flavorful homemade crispy waffles. They’re delicious. They’re even better with a generous helping of roasted strawberries on top. And perhaps a drizzle of maple syrup. But I swear the extras like butter and maple syrup aren’t necessary if you use roasted strawberries. So seriously scrumptious.

I made waffles recently again, same recipe but a different day and sadly I was out of roasted strawberries by then. The waffles while still super tasty and fun to eat, weren’t anywhere near as enjoyable without strawberries. I’ve totally ruined waffle eating for myself. I’ll need to keep a supply of roasted strawberries on hand at all times. It’s the new staple for my fridge. And it should be a staple in your home too!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 C all purpose flour
  • 1/4 C cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 C buttermilk
  • 1/4 C milk
  • 6 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg separated
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Roasted strawberries for topping

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 200°F and warm up waffle iron.
  • In a medium bowl, mix flour, cornstarch, salt, baking powder and baking soda. In a large measuring cup mix together buttermilk, milk, vegetable oil and egg yolk. In a small bowl, beat egg white until soft peaks form. Add vanilla and sprinkle with sugar. Beat until glossy and firm.
  • Pour buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients, whisk just until combined. Fold in egg whites.
  • Pour batter onto a lightly greased hot waffle iron, cooking to desired color and crispness.
  • Transfer cooked waffles to a baking sheet and place in warm oven until ready to serve.

Notes

*Due to waffle irons coming in a variety of sizes I cannot give an exact amount of batter to pour. 1 cup of batter will fit in the Calphalon Belgian waffle maker, using half of the batter and making 4 sections of waffles.
