Waffles!

....Norwegian waffles are not intended to be crispy (Nilsson calls for five eggs) and indeed these waffles were not.  And I found them too sweet for my taste.

 

The problem now is I have three and a half cups of waffle batter left.  Wish I had made half a recipe.  What to do?  Probably pancakes.  Suggestions welcome.

 

Try this yeasted recipe that I love because I can mix it the night before and bake waffles next morning while still half asleep.    -> Ethereally light and super crispy waffles.   Same problem as you is more batter than waffles for just a few people    Batter seems to keep well for a couple of days in the fridge, if you're inclined to want two waffle feasts in one week.

As you may read earlier in the thread I am fond of the Marion Cunningham recipe.  The exercise was to test out the new blender.

So use it here.    eta I use my beloved Bamix immersion blender.    YMMV.

I hadn't had waffles for over a year.  Today, snowed in, I went back to Joy of Cooking sour cream waffles, which had been my go to waffle recipe for decades.  Threw everything in the Blendtec and pushed the batter button.

 

Waffles just the way I like them.

I don't see sour cream waffles in my 1997 version of Joy. I'd be interested in the recipe if you can post a link.

 

My version of it is:

King Arthur AP organic flour 120g (note original recipe calls for 1 cup cake flour)

thick sour cream 2 cups

eggs 3

Rumford baking powder 1 1/4 teaspoons

baking soda 1 teaspoon

sugar 1 teaspoon

salt 1/8 teaspoon

 

I ignore the Joy procedure and process everything in the Blendtec.  The batter is quite thick.  I cook the waffles 4 minutes in my De'Longhi iron.  They are just crisp on the outside and release easily.  These waffles are stick to the ribs, not ethereal.  I think they are delicious.  If you prefer a cakey waffle or a light waffle, choose a different recipe.

Thanks! I'll give it a try this weekend.

 

I'm feeling like another batch.  Did you have a chance to try the sour cream recipe?

No, but thanks for reminding me. Waffles and bacon--the best. Sunday's coming up, so I think I'll make these. 

 

Today was the day for me.  Waffles and sausage, in my case.  Now I want not to see another waffle for a year.  There is half a batch of batter left in the refrigerator.

I suppose they could be pancakes...I always make all the waffles. I eat the last one, freeze the rest and enjoy resurrecting them into sandwiches or just themselves with different toppings. Do report back on your preferences. 

Edited to add that I guess a year is a long time to wait!

I'm thinking I might try pancakes with the remainder of the batter.
