Waffles Are Always A Good Idea…

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful and relaxing weekend so far! Today, if you didn’t know, is National Waffle Day and I whole heartedly support this holiday. During the week, breakfast is usually a quick bowl of cereal with a cup of coffee. On the weekend, everyone is off work and no pressing homework that needs to be done, so we take it easy. That starts with making a delicious breakfast. The usual go-to’s are pancakes, waffles, french toast or hash brown and eggs. Today, we’re having waffles and below you will find the recipe I’ll be using, in case you feel like celebrating waffles. If you do decide to join the waffle party, share with me your favorite toppings! If social media is more your thing, share with me on my Instagram @mightrunforcupcakes. Happy eating!

  • 2 Eggs, Seperated
  • 2 Cups, Buttermillk
  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Margarine or Butter, Melted

Heat waffle iron. Place egg yolks in large bowl; whites in small bowl. To yolks add buttermilk; beat well. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; beat until smooth. Stir in melted margarine.
