The Waffle Iron for the Decades

The Waffle Iron for the Decades

The waffle iron that lasts for decades. The one I still use today comes from a yard sale in Long Beach Washington (1997), the longest beach in the world.

Waffle Iron Story

The request while at the beach home was waffles for Sunday breakfast. Just as we drove from a moment downtown Long Beach we find a yard sale. The Hamilton waffle iron is right for the best price of $2. It was a gem for the day if even for the Sunday meal.

This waffle iron has been around since then. It always works and makes perfect waffles. It has gone from the beach to home to the desert in a move. The children have grown and started there own families. The tradition continues with the waffle iron for my granddaughter.

Recently #FoodieEllie (my granddaughter) requested waffles for a Saturday breakfast. She said, “I am going to watch TV while you make me waffles, pleeaassee grammy.” I did take the time to make the waffles.

This is a perfect brunch after the 4th of July holiday weekend. #FoodieEllie loves blueberries and they can be added fresh it gives a nice squeeze of juice inside. Her 4th of July in Champaign Illinois was blueberry waffles. She found the blueberries at the local farmers market. Perfection.

Waffle Ingredients

Here is the reciepe for a great waffle for your weekend celebration. Children will be a great help with creating this meal.

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk (Difficult to find at times you can do 3/4 cup of milk with 1/4 cup of vinegar), perfect buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs (separated, whip egg whites to soft peaks fold in at the very end)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoon sour cream
  • Warmed syrup, fresh fruits, whipped cream, Nutella, or chocolate syrup. Fun to make it a selection for children and guests.

Waffle Directions
  • Preheat waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk buttermilk and eggs yolks; pour over flour mixture, and whisk gently to combine (don’t overmix). Gently whisk in butter and sour cream. Fold in whipped egg whites.
  • Following the manufacturer’s instructions, cook waffles until deep brown and crisp. (For a standard waffle iron, pour a generous 1/2 cup of batter into center, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edges, and close; waffle will cook in 2 to 3 minutes.) Allow your guests to top their waffles with their favorite.
