Waffles and Syrup
Updated: Dec 7, 2020
Big news!!! We are buying a house in Texas; we are currently in California. And we have only seen the home through pictures. It's a 28-hour drive from our current home to our new home. We don't move until August, but let our new adventure begin!!
The syrup recipe below is really good. The syrup has a lot of sugar, but it does not have corn syrup, so we use it every time we have waffles. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Waffles have been a favorite of mine since I was young. My dad still makes waffles every Sunday for breakfast. My kids don't enjoy waffles as much as I do. Zeek won't eat waffles at all, so we use coconut oil in the waffles.
If Zeek ever eats waffles, we have to use butter instead of coconut oil. Tree nut allergies are tough, especially living in California. There are a lot of people that want to be healthy or have gluten allergies, so people like to use nut flours. Zeek has to have his own bag of treats at school, so he can have a treat when someone brings something he can't eat.
2 c Flour
1/3 c coconut oil, melted ( or 1/2 c butter, melted)
1/2 t salt
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 1/2 c milk
Mix all the dry ingredients together. Then, add the remaining ingredients, saving the coconut oil as the last ingredient. I mix the batter well before adding the coconut oil. I melt the coconut oil before adding it. The oil is smoother when the coconut oil is melted; I also feel like it is evenly distributed. I know that it changes the coconut oil when it is melted, but the coconut oil is about to be melted when the waffle cooks anyway.
Cook the waffle at the desired temperature in your waffle iron. These are also good pancakes. Top with the syrup recipe below or whatever syrup or toppings you like best.
1/2 c butter
1 c sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 t vanilla
1/2 t soda
Melt butter in a saucepan, then add sugar and mix well. Next, add the milk and bring to a boil for one minute or until the butter is no longer separated from the milk and sugar.
Now, remove from heat and add vanilla and soda. The soda will thicken the mixture, and it will become foamy and rise in the pan. If you are doubling the recipe, make sure you use a larger saucepan.
