Honestly, who doesn't like breakfast for dinner? Brinner is maybe the best kind of meal. Doubly so if you've been in your pajamas all day anyway. The other day I was looking in the cabinets and noticed the waffle iron I had completely forgotten about. So brinner it was!
I've made waffles from scratch before, but I think they're kind of boring on their own. So I made three different kinds. Regular, chocolate chip, and brown sugar-cinnamon. The brown sugar-cinnamon were my favorite, but the boys liked the chocolate chips ones. The recipe below is just the regular waffle recipe, but if you want to make variations, it's really easy.
adapted from allrecipes
2 cups flour
1 3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 Tbsp white sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
In a bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy, then whisk in all the other ingredients until smooth. Then just throw a spoonful into a (preheated) waffle iron and cook until golden brown! Depending on your waffle iron, you may have to grease it or flip it, so look in the instruction manual for more specific instructions.
Brown sugar-cinnamon: After mixing the normal recipe, add about a 2 Tbsp brown sugar and a generous dash of cinnamon. Mix well and prepare normally.
Chocolate chips: Mix as many chocoalte chips as you want into the batter and grease the waffle iron well. The chocolate chips will melt onto the iron, but you want to be able to scrape them off easily between batches.
