Easter Brunch

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I really enjoy entertaining for different holidays and Easter is no exception. In our family, the tradition is to get together for a late morning waffle brunch. Everyone can get involved both in making them, and adding all sorts of toppings. Be creative! Top frozen or fresh fruit, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, or go old-school with butter and syrup. It’s a delicious beginning to a day filled with family and friends. Need a waffle recipe to try? I’ve included this one and it sounds fantastic!

Note: The batter will need to sit for 30 minutes before cooking.

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
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Assorted toppings for serving

Directions: 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. Preheat a waffle iron. Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles. Serve immediately with the toppings of your choice.

Tip: Do not use non-stick spray on the waffle iron; the oil in the batter will allow the waffle to release easily.
