Mom gives so much throughout the year that she deserves to be honored with a delicious breakfast on Mother’s Day. In fact, we made waffles in the test kitchen just the other day and had a great time. We are sure you will have fun with these, too. Here are two of our favorite waffle recipes that will show mom just how much you love and appreciate her.
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/4 cups milk

- 1 egg
- In a large bowl, combine flour, whole wheat flour, rolled oats and baking powder; set aside.
- In a small bowl, whisk together milk, oil and egg.

- Serve whole waffles or break into sections for dipping.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Test Kitchen Tips: Homemade waffle batter may take longer to cook than packaged pancake and waffle mix. The packaged mixes are done in about 5 minutes. Made-from-scratch recipes take a few minutes more.
The Belgian waffle grid holds more batter than a traditional grid. These recipes give a range of batter to use, for example, 2/3 to 3/4 cup. The larger amount should be used for a Belgian waffle grid.
Waffles can be frozen and then reheated. Make a large batch ahead of time and let cool on a cooling rack. Freeze individually in airtight storage bags or in one large bag with a piece of parchment paper between waffles to prevent sticking. Reheat in an oven or microwave.
