Whole Wheat Waffles

What a wonderful Saturday it has been so far!! I was allowed to sleep in today and woke up to the wonderful aroma of waffles, apples and cinnamon. It was such a great way to start the day. My husband had prepared breakfast along with some really good tea. It was a nice treat. The morning was cloudy and gray and with such a delicious breakfast, I was transported to a far away place and felt  I was on a holiday.

At one point in time, I thought making waffles was almost next to impossible and had to rely on the readymade frozen variety. But ever since I got the waffle maker, I can never go back to the cardboard like frozen version. Nothing tastes better than the homemade version. Add to this a compote of fresh berries and thats one of the best breakfast menus I can think of. The waffle recipe is so easy and quick that I even make it on those rushed weekday mornings.

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp oil
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk (whole or skimmed) or water

Beat the egg well. To this add the vanilla essence and mix well. In another bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking soda. To this add the oil and egg mixture. Then slowly pour in the milk and mix together to form the batter. The batter should be thick but easily pourable. Adjust the quantity of milk to adjust the batter consistency.

Ideally you would want to separate the egg yolk and white and beat the egg white till you have a nice foam. Start out with the egg yolk and vanilla essence and then add the other ingredients. Then fold in the egg white once the batter has been created. Do not overmix the batter. You should mix it just enough so that all the ingredients get incorporated.
