Sunday Waffles

See that cutie-patootie up there? That’s my hubby, eons ago, on his first day of school. In Germany it’s traditional to give the kiddos a Zuckertüte – sugarbag (nowadays called a Schultüte – schoolbag) on the first day of school. It’s simply a colourful cardboard cone filled with sweets, trinkets and neat back to school supplies. Another popular German tradition? (at least in our house)

Sunday waffles – made by daddy
Here’s the scrumptious recipe passed down from Oma:

You’ll need: 4 eggs, 2 tsp vanilla, 3 tbsp honey, 1.5 cups milk, 1.5 cups sparking water, 1/4 cup butter, 3 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 tsp baking powder & a pinch of salt

mix together all of the wet ingredients

add all of the dry ingredients except the baking powder & mix well

add the baking powder – I have no idea why the baking powder should be the very last ingredient mixed in but Oma insisted upon it & so to this day it’s how my hubs makes ’em

heat up the waffle iron you’ve had since university

dump a half ladle full of waffle mixture into the center

close the waffle iron & let it do it’s job for 2 – 3 minutes

open it up, peel the waffle off of the top & ladle on the next batch

we like to eat them plain…

or with a side of yogurt…

dipped in pear yogurt? mmmm lecker!

  1. Ooh, yummy! I have never had waffles with yoghurt before. Was just wondering whether the waffle maker has to have a non-stick finish to it, or do you brush it with oil before you add the mixture? I’ m worried the waffles will stick 🙂

    • our waffle iron is technically ‘non-stick’ but as it’s over 15 years old hubby brushes it with oil just to be safe…we really should invest in a new one, eh? The hubs uses things until they blow-up or simply give-up & die =O)

    • As soon as ours finally gives up we’ll definitely be investing in a froufroushishi stainless one – it’s gotta be the heartshapes though! Super cute and I love how you can pull ’em apart to eat just one (or 2…or 3!) hearts instead of an entire waffle ;O)

Don't be shy...lemme know what you think...
