Waffle joy

I love waffles and it really helps that they're so easy to make. I have a "vintage" waffle maker that I found in my Grandma's things. It's called the Belgian Waffler. How great is that? It might burn the house down but since I'm in the kitchen the entire time it's on I feel it's safe enough to use. This is the recipe I always turn to, it's fast, easy and only requires basic ingredients I always have on hand. Then I slather on some butter and a touch of real maple syrup and my weekend is always happy.

My Favorite Waffles
1 3/4 c all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 large eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 c milk
8 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a small bowl whisk together eggs, milk and butter. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Gently whisk them together, the mixture should have a pebbled look.
Yield: 4-5 large waffles
