She {hearts} Waffles and Homemade Syrup

TheWonderMillLogoHeaderI am sooo happy that someone out there invented waffles. Because if they hadn’t I wouldn’t have a meal to fall back on in a pinch at dinnertime. Waffles are so versatile, and thankfully my kids will eat them, as long as syrup is included. I haven’t really had a great waffle recipe and so in our home waffles had kind of taken a hiatus. But, I recently was chatting with my Mom and she mentioned that my grandma had an amazing, and unique waffle recipe that she insisted I must try. I got the recipe from her and whipped them right up. These waffles are amazing and I felt they were worthy enough to share.

The other reason that waffles sometimes don’t happen as frequently as I would like at our house is because we don’t always have syrup in our pantry or fridge. I am not great at keeping it constantly stocked and so get ready….. I have a lifesaver for all of us who need last minute syrup. I have a recipe to make your own in 10 minutes, maybe 5 if you hurry.

Hard White Waffles
  • 2 C. flour( I used fresh milled hard white wheat using the WonderMill)
  • 2T. Sugar(I used honey granules)
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 4 t. baking powder
  • 1 t. soda
  • 2 C. sour cream
  • 4 egg yolks beaten(separate whites and put in mixer)
  1. Mix these first 7 ingredients together in your bowl.
  2. In a mixer whip the 4 egg whites until firm peaks form. And then fold in your 4 whipped egg whites. Mix together well.
  3. At this point or, before you start preparing the recipe, heat up your waffle iron, and spray with non-stick oil. I use an olive oil sprayer and make sure all nooks and crannies are coated so waffle doesn't stick.
  4. Now take 3/4 C. batter and place on hot waffle iron. My iron lets me know when waffles are ready. If yours doesn't, just check the waffle by gently lifting up.
  5. When waffle is golden brown, remove and then promptly butter and drizzle with syrup.


Now on to the syrup recipe…this recipe comes from a local store called Bread Beckers that I shop to buy all of my wheat, and baking supplies. Since finding this recipe I don’t buy syrup anymore. This syrup has a wonderful taste. I will warn you it is not as thick as regular syrup but, I like it because it absorbs faster into the waffle.

Homemade Maple Syrup
  • 1 1/2 C. water
  • 1 C. sucanat
  • 1/2 C. clover honey
  • 1 Tbs. maple or 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
  1. Combine ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to boil.
  2. Remove from heat and add either vanilla or maple flavoring.
  3. It's that easy! I love it!!

Enjoy!!!
