New Year Waffles

Last year on New Year’s Day, McHubby went to our friend Kim’s house for waffles and monkey bread and the company of good friends. We had so much fun and wanted to carry on this new tradition—for today’s New Year breakfast, we had some neighbors over for a small waffle party. We used our new Belgian waffle iron to make these delicious waffles. For the waffle spread, we had blueberries, sliced strawberries, mini chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, powdered sugar, whipped cream, butter, and maple syrup. What a wonderful way to start the New Year! Happy New Year, everyone!

6 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
¼ cup baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons salt
3 ½ cups reduced-fat milk
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 large eggs, lightly beaten

Combine all ingredients, in order listed, in a large mixing bowl; whisk until well blended and smooth. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.

Preheat the waffle maker to desired setting.

Pour a scant 2 cups of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread batter evenly using a heafproof spatula. Close lid of waffle maker. When tone sounds, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.

Makes 16 waffles.
