I’m a little frustrated with the Georgia state school system. Last night, after spending time with the kids putting together their Valentine’s for their class and putting together teacher gift bags, they called school before a single snowflake even fell. And now, here it is 9:20am and there hasn’t been so much as a glimmer of any white stuff. So, I had to break it to my kids this morning that they were not going to school to have an awesome party but they were going to stay home because of snow that isn’t here yet.
They were not happy either.
So, a special breakfast was in order. Like most kids, mine LOVE waffles. I mean they really love waffles. My son in particular can eat 3-4 waffles in one sitting and he’s only 3 years old.
So, I piled everyone in the kitchen and we all made waffles. My Nannie’s waffles.
She gave me the recipe 4 years ago and I have yet to try them until today. I don’t know what I was waiting for because they are fabulous! They are light and fluffy with a crisp outside and chewy inside. Not too sweet and the perfect vessel for some homemade Blueberry Syrup .
Give them a whirl on your next snow day. They will lift your spirits.
2 cups AP Flour
1/3 cup Wheat Germ or Oats
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs, separated
1/4 t. baking soda ( for the egg whites)
Heat up your griddle.
Place egg whites in a mixing bowl along with 1/4 tsp. of baking soda. Beat on high until you get medium peaks.
In a seperate bowl, mix together flour, remaining soda, and wheat germ or oats.
Mix in egg yolks and milks until blended.
Gently fold in egg whites.
Place a ladle full on your hot griddle at a time and cook according to your waffle iron’s specifications.
