I am in love with my new Bella Cucina donut maker. What is it about donuts that we love so much? That sweet shape promises us something sinful. In this case, it's not so sinful. It's just waffles but the kids think it's a special day when we have donuts for breakfast.
This waffle recipe gets used a lot in my house. It is my mom's recipe but I've made a couple of changes to it over the years. I try to use whole wheat pastry flour when I can. My kids struggle with regular whole wheat flour but this has a much finer texture. It's soft and smooth much like white flour.
Use the weekend to make a huge batch with the kids then keep them in the fridge for the week or the freezer for later. You will thank yourself when you pull these babies out and throw them in the toaster on a busy Monday morning.
Whisk all dry ingredients first, make a well in center and pour in wet. Mix gently until just combined. Pour into greased waffle iron.
Or use the donut maker. Pour the batter into a greased donut maker. Add chocolate chips or blueberries on top. Dip into favorite syrup or spread with peanut butter and make a mini sandwich. Great for lunches too.
