Cooking with Kelly: Homemade Waffle Recipe

Today was a lovely post-Christmas holiday. As I mentioned, I got Tim a waffle maker for Christmas. Now that my stomach doesn't want to clear the decks every time I have the audacity to eat, I decided to try it out and make some waffles for us for breakfast. I never used to like waffles, but I enjoyed the texture of this particular homemade recipe. It leads to a crispy exterior and chewy interior, which is a dichotomy I can't resist.

Homemade Waffle Recipe
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
7/8 cup skim milk
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1 large egg

Whisk together ingredients, then allow to stand for a few minutes while the waffle iron preheats. I like my waffles crispy, so I cranked the heat, then sprayed it with oil and cooked the waffles until golden brown, about five minutes.

Post breakfast, we had a lovely lunch with Tim's family, followed by coffee at his uncle's house. Then, we rounded off the evening with a trip to Target. I zeroed in on cute wrapping items that I could use for multiple holidays. It was a giant score! I got wrapping paper for both my mom and I, adhesive tags, bows, ribbon and a few items for my niece. Target rocked my socks off. We spent $24 and I had a $20 gift card (thanks, Mandy!) and I hope that I purchased enough to not have to do this again next year.
