Is there anything better than some hot waffles coming out of the waffle iron? I just love the smell and they are always a big hit on the weekend around here. I serve them topped with a little sirup, whipped cream or powdered sugar and a side of fresh fruit.
- 1-1/4 cups milk
- 6 tablespoons melted margarine (3/4 of a stick)
- 2 medium eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 teaspoons baking powder (1 tablespoon)
- 1-3/4 cup whole wheat flour

Pour the milk, margarine and eggs into the bowl. If you are melting the margarine in the microwave, you can melt it in the bowl first, and then add the milk and eggs. Mix these up really well with a whisk or a fork, or electric beaters. Add the salt, baking powder and flour. Beat the batter with a whisk or electric beaters until it is smooth. Preheat your waffle iron according to the instructions. Oil it with a pastry brush if necessary. Use a measuring cup to measure 1/2-cup of batter into each waffle section. Close the waffle iron and allow the waffles to bake for about 2 minutes, or according to the instructions in the manual.
When the waffles are well cooked, they should be pretty easy to loosen up with a fork or a chopstick. Gently lay the waffles on a plate and continue cooking until you use up all of the batter. Be careful not to overfill the waffle iron because the extra batter will just spill off and make a big mess. This recipe makes 6 waffles. Serve them with Pancake Syrup, and fruit.
