On Thursdays, I have to work from 11am to 9pm. Not the best scenario. In an effort to make Thursdays a little better, Quinn (who works from home) and I usually eat waffles before I leave for work. A bit of a confession – we usualy make Bisquick waffles. Today, we had a slight variation of the traditional recipe by making Alton Brown’s waffles. Our only variation was to use AP flour instead of whole wheat. Oh, we did throw in some pecans for me.
Using a “real” recipe versus a baking mix recipe really doesn’t take much extra time or effort. And, the payoff in taste is a good reward for such a small amount of work. The waffles were near perfection in the consistency department. Light and buttery, and beautifully browned. Our Bisquick waffles just looked heavy and dense. And not in a good way.
So, the moral of the story is: Make your own waffles if at all possible. You’ll be glad you did.
AB also has a chocolate version of these that we must try, hopefully sooner rather than later. I’ve never had chocolate waffles, but how could they not be good? But, I am wondering… do you use chocolate syrup for these?
