Making french toast for breakfast this morning made me think that I haven’t really posted anything for breakfast as yet…well could be a really, really, really long time since. Either way, I found a breakfast recipe (from scratch of course!) that will be a great addition to your breakfast routine.
Why always from scratch? Everyone has their own dietary needs and preferences. With the amount of processed, modified and engineered foods out there, some are worried about what they give their families to eat. Recipes made from scratch give you more control over what you add in and substitute, though I will say that the results will vary somewhat when substituting ingredients. Keep that in mind.
What you need
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs – separated
- 1 and 1/4 cups milk
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 apple – finely sliced
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks well. Stir in milk.
Add sifted dry ingredients to egg yolks and mix until moistened (be careful not to over mix).
Add vegetable oil. Fold in egg whites.
Pour cinnamon in mixture. Stir.
Add apples. Blend lightly into mixture.
Bake in preheated waffle maker for at least 4 to 5 minutes, until crisp and brown.
(s/n) You can make your favorite syrup or compote to add on top of the waffles!
I hope that this recipe will become a great addition to your family recipe box.
