Our Waffle House – The Tastiest Waffle Recipe

What do you do with your littles?

As a mother of four boys, it’s hard to make time to do special things with each of my children. There are only so many hours in the day and there is always so much that needs to be done. I’ve found that multitasking has been my saving grace. It’s allowed me to give one of my boys special attention all while teaching them a new skill,  helping them learn about themselves, and has saved me from neglecting my daily must-dos. Today we made waffles using the tastiest waffle recipe known to man.


Cooking With Connor


My son, Connor, is now Chef Ronnoc. You’re probably wondering where I’m getting the Ronnoc from but it is really just Connor spelled backwards.  One day while hurrying to cook, I had asked Connor to help grab some ingredients from the fridge and from there his infatuation with cooking grew. It grew so much that for his seventh birthday he asked for cooking supplies!! Some of his favorite shows now include the Kids Baking Championship and Chopped Junior.

 

 


One Recipe Book To Rule Them All


The Better Homes Junior Cookbook is seriously the cutest cookbook! It’s got a bunch of age-appropriate recipes with easy directions. It’s clearly been written for kids and in a language that they can understand. The illustrations are fun and engaging. Chef Ronnoc really loves diving into his cookbook and working on some meal planning with me. I’ll be posting about how we meal plan in our Bullet Journals soon!

For Chef Ronnoc’s birthday he was gifted a Waffle Maker, Red Silicone Oven Mitts, a Pancake Pourer Pen, and a super special cooking apron and cap.

 

 


It’s Cooking Time!!!


While we love our cookbook, there were no waffle recipes inside (GASP), so we had to improvise. We used this recipe for a super simple and tasty waffle lunch. It was really easy to make and Chef Ronnoc truly enjoyed measuring everything and mixing it all together. We ended up using a spoon to scoop the batter into the waffle maker because we learned that the pancake pourer pen really is more for pancakes on a pan than waffles in a waffle maker.

 

 


Our Super Awesome Waffle Recipe




Ingredients:

Optional:

 

This recipe is ready in just 20 minutes!

Begin by preheating your waffle iron. This should take around five minutes.

Beat the eggs in a large bowl until they are nice and fluffy.

Add the flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, salt, and the vanilla extract and beat until the mixture is smooth. I like to add some cinnamon or fruits like strawberries or blueberries here too. We used fresh blueberries in our recipe. Chocolates would also work great for a sweet morning treat.

Let your mixture rest for 5 minutes.

Be sure to spray your waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the mixture into the hot waffle iron. Let them cook until they are golden brown. On my waffle maker (linked above) there will be a green light letting you know when they are ready. You can also smell when they are done. If you leave them in a little longer the waffles will be crispier rather than on the softer side. We left them in for just a few minutes (around 3 minutes) because we like our waffles nice and fluffy.

Top with some whipped cream or your favorite syrup and enjoy!


Deliciousness in the Flesh


 

 

Connor, I mean Chef Ronnoc, has gained so much confidence from cooking with me and I have gained a much needed assistant. I feel like this is for sure one of my greatest mom wins. We’ve learned that Connor is a great cook and really loves to cook. He also is getting some much needed one-on-one mom time which has helped keep him from getting attention elsewhere… as in it’s helped keep him out of trouble 😂. His confidence has soared. His favorite part is when he serves his meals and everyone thanks him. I feel like we may have a real chef in the making-either that or his wife will one day thank me for a husband who cooks!

    Yum. I am SO hungry for waffles right now. And this post came at a perfect time: next weekend, our family is having our annual “no go, no snow” winter retreat weekend (we want to be snowed in, but it never happens, so we just confront that reality and still plan to stay home). My daughter specifically asked me to make s’mores waffles, so know I know what recipe to use as the base for those! Thanks for sharing over on Parenting Bloggers on Facebook!

      That’s too funny! S’more waffles sound like they would be so very delicious! I’m thinking it would be pretty easy to incorporate those ingredients into my recipe. She will probably have a blast making them with you! Let me know how you like my recipe! Thank you for commenting.

    I may have gained a few pounds reading this post. As Bloggers we all go through rough patches from time to time. Keep your priorities straight and you will be fine.
