These waffles are light, soft inside and crunchy on the outside. If you like waffles or sweet breakfast in general you should give that recipe a try! My grandma has one of these old-fashioned burning wood ovens and a cast iron waffle maker that she would use to make me and my cousins waffles when we stayed there for summer. We would be woken up by that smell that can only be described as divine. She would call us and serve them with homemade jam and fresh milk from her cow. Pure bliss!
Some time ago I tried to make them a little bit healthier and use oat flour but I failed miserably. I guess it’s just one of the dishes that you eat once in a while and you have to accept some carbs and sugar, it’s just not worth to ruin a classic. Waffles can be topped with powdered sugar or jam.
I sifted the flour and baking powder to make the mixture a little lighter and clump-free.
Then to be honest there is not to much to it. I just whisked all the ingredients together. You can also use hand mixer, that may be even a better option to get a really smooth texture. A nice trick a picked up from my mom is using some sparkling water for the waffles for extra lightness.
It is important that waffle iron is really hot otherwise they won’t turn out crunchy. I sprayed it with oil. If you don’t have it using some olive oil or butter will work too. I poured about a ladle per each waffle. That depends of course on the size of your waffle iron it may vary. Mine took about 4 minutes until it turned golden brown.
Waffles are best when they are served hot. If you have some leftover go ahead and freeze them in a ziploc bag. Then simply put it frozen in toaster for fast breakfast. I love waffles with jam or powdered sugar. Enjoy!
