  1. Recipe Idea: Early Morning Homemade Waffles

    You Need: 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 4 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tbsp sugar, 2 eggs, 2 1/4 cups milk, and 3/4 cup vegetable oil

    Step 1: Start by putting in the flour in a medium sized bowl. Then, add 4 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, and 1 1/2 cups of white sugar. Stir with a fork.

    Step 2: Mix in the 2 1/4 cups of milk. Now, crack 2 eggs on their side, and dump the eggshells into the bowl. Stir with a fork. Also, stir in 3/4 cups of vegetable oil.

    Step 3: Heat up a griddle, and pour the batter onto the griddle. Let it stand for a few minutes.

    Step 4: Scoop up 1/3 cups of the batter, and place it on a heated waffle iron. Now, close the waffle iron lid. Let it stand for a few minutes.

    Step 5: Cool the waffles down before serving.

    I call this “an absolute morning sensation.” It is one of the best waffles you will ever taste.

  2. To all the individuals who keep complaining about why she showed mixing all the flour stages. Not EVERYONE in the world knows what the dough is supposed to look like at certain stages. Some individuals (most of the time children learning to cook for the first time) like step by step stages so they cam see that YES their soft dough is looking the right way at certain stages. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. Skip ahead. But don’t complain over the little things just so that you can be a negative Nancy.

  3. Awesome recipe! First time I’ve ever made bread and it turned out wonderful! Only had to bake mine for 28 minutes; must be the high altitude where I live. Thanks so much, will make again soon!

  4. For anyone who is wondering-things like honey and molasses don’t need to be added if you don’t want to!!!! For Shabbat my mother would sometimes add honey and sometimes she wouldn’t. And if you’re vegan or vegetarian there’s plenty of recipes!

  5. At least this video Gives specifics on Measurements…. I saw another Video where the person did not give Measurements on Ingredients at all…. Leaving you to guess or figure out measurements on Ingredients…. To me this video is much, much Detailed and better Explained in my opinion. Here the end Results of the Recipe looks Beautiful!!

  6. I do apologize if the question sounds weird.
    But when I made this bread, it came out wonderfully! I carefully had to check how much flour I was using since I was trying to make a bigger size bread (it’s a family of five with 2 extra hungry ones lol).
    Could I use the same recipe but with whole wheat flour? My mother is diabetic and would wonder if I can switch between the usual flour to whole wheat.
    Also does leaving the flour during its poofing stage longer make it more fluffier?
