Last week, on a day where LJ was my helper,we tried out a new recipe from cooks.com for a Waffle/French Toast batter mix and tried our hand at Homemade Syrup from Lorrie Flem's More Sanity-Saving Breakfast Ideas. Let me tell you, we were not disappointed!!!
First we made the Base Batter Mix:
- 10 cups flour
-2 1/2 cups powdered milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking powder
1 tsp salt
Next I taught LJ how to properly measure flour. He really had fun with this part.
- 3 cups of Base Batter Mix
We meausured out the remaining ingredients to add to our base batter mix
-1/2 cup oil
-1 1/2 to 2 cups water
1 tsp vanilla
Make sure your waffle iron is good and heated up and add about 1/4 cup of waffle batter.
We waited 4 minutes per batch and...
Voila, yummy homemade waffles!!!!!
And since were were having so much fun we decided to give a try with homemade syrup:
1 cup sugar
2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups water
all combined in a saucepan and boil until it starts to thicken then remove from heat.
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp butter flavoring
1 tsp maple extract
and serve warm or cool and store in refrigerator.
(*Note when we made this I added everything to the saucepan and the mixture did not really thicken, so after about 10 minutes I just stopped cooking the mixture. It was a bit runny for breakfast that morning but once it had cooled and was stored in the refrigerator overnight, it was the perfect consistency.)
Our homemade breakfast ready to hit the table!!! And LJ was most pleased with the fruit of his labor!!!
Next week I'll share with you whether my freezer cookies were a flop or not!!!! Till then go see what you can create with your child and link up with us at Kiddos Create on Mama Jenn's blog!!!
