That’s the Kinfolk Table there being a prop to my Waffles of Insane Greatness. No joke. The name of the recipe is really that. I do agree that these waffles are quite amazing. They are fast to make, crispy, smell and taste delicious. The batter can be done in one bowl and mixed with a metal spoon (at least that was what I did). Why this recipe works is due to the corn starch inside which makes the waffle so crispy.
These waffles can be kept too, if you really do not have time in the morning. I made some extra. I was home alone when I made this and I cannot possibly finish that many waffles! -.- Anyway, I stored the extras using baking grease proof paper in an airtight contained (i.e. waffle, a layer of paper, another waffle, another layer of paper and so on) and left it in the fridge. Those lasted me about 3 days.. still perfect after a while in the toaster! I made a quick breakfast, fried egg and toasted waffle. Quick and satisfying!
I seriously worship this recipe. It’s easy, simple, fuss-free and delicious. You have to make it!
Waffle of Insane Greatness
From Food52 Genius Recipes (I changed nothing.)
Makes 6 squares using my waffle maker. As you can see from the first photo, I ate the first waffle, couldn’t wait!
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk or buttermilk (or a combination)
1/3 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Butter and pure maple syrup, for serving
- In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix well. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes.
- Heat a waffle iron. Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles. Serve immediately with butter and pure maple syrup or hold in a 200 degree oven, directly on the rack (don’t stack them or they’ll get soggy). These also reheat very well in the toaster.
