Fat Tuesday din din


I can’t believe it’s that time of year again! Wow-it’s early! I saw that Carole/Pea was going to have pancakes, so I got to thinking waffles are almost the same thing. I found this recipe and it’s really a keeper. I ‘made’ buttermilk with white vinegar and milk-like 1 teaspoon to a cup of milk. Thanks to Waffle-recipes.com for this winner:

Waffle House is a famous chain of restaurants that has been satisfying American palates since 1955. Waffles were often regarded as something to eat for breakfast. Because of Waffle House and their 24-hour service, waffles became a favorite treat no matter what time it is. This just goes to show how delicious these waffles are. What makes it different from other waffles is that it is very dense and it has a slightly sweet flavor. Just like most versions, the Waffle House waffle recipe is easy to make. There are just a few differences on the ingredients and how it is prepared, thus, making it uniquely delicious.

Waffle House Waffle Recipe Ingredients

1 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour

1 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Egg

1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon White Sugar

2 tablespoons Butter, softened

2 tablespoons Shortening

1/2 cup half and half (mixture of 50% milk and 50% cream)

1/2 cup Milk

1/4 cup Buttermilk

1/4 teaspoon Vanilla


Mix the dry ingredients like flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl.

In another bowl, slightly beat the egg.

Use an electric mixer to blend the sugar, butter, and shortening together with the beaten egg.

Add the milk, buttermilk, vanilla, and the half and half until well-blended together.

Pour the flour mixture and mix it well with a spatula or you may use the electric beater to make mixing faster and easier.

Chill the batter in the fridge preferably for 12 hours. This is the secret of Waffle House as their batter is already prepared early and chilled until it is ready to use. This, however, is optional. If you can not wait too long to have your waffles, you may skip this step.

Preheat your waffle iron or griddle and make sure that the Teflon is well-greased with cooking oil. As it is heating up, take the batter out of the fridge to thaw. When the waffle maker is ready, pour enough amounts of the batter and cook it for approximately 3 to 4 minutes or until it achieves the right texture that you desire.

These Waffle House waffle recipe is enough to make 6 waffles.

Extra Tips

You may double the measurements of the ingredients for a larger batch. If you want the waffles to be a little more fluffy and creamy, beat the egg yolk and the egg white separately. Use an electric mixer for the egg white to make it look like cake icing. Allow the waffles to cool down a bit before serving, especially if you are cooking for your kids, as it may be too hot if served right after it is taken out of the waffle iron.

You may put butter and some maple syrup on top before serving.

You may also serve it with fruits such as strawberries or ripe mangoes.

These waffles are so delicious, you could eat them as they are, without any toppings or syrups. Now that the top secret recipe of Waffle House is revealed, you may now enjoy great-tasting waffles right at the comfort of your own home.

We used syrup and almond butter! I saw on Dr. Oz where almond butter helps you like milk to sleep and I had gotten some for Brian. It’s really yummy. We also had turkey bacon and sausage and applesauce.


Brian’s dad had his MRI yesterday, but hasn’t heard the results yet. He says he feels slightly better, but we don’t like his leg going out on him. My aunt’s memorial service is in a couple of days. We weren’t asked to come, but it was in the paper.

  1. I’ve never made homemade waffles but I will definitely have to try this recipe, they sound and look so delicious! I’ve been wanting a waffle maker and even asked for one at Christmas but didn’t get one…I think I’ll buy one tomorrow after I’ve brought mom to the clinic:-) Fingers crossed that it’s not bad news he has to share with us!!! I ended up making the pancakes for lunch instead of dinner and oooh they were good:-) I don’t have them often so I really enjoy them when I do. xoxo

  2. That dinner looks so good to me right now. Peas pancakes sounded good, too. I never make either one because DH does not like either. Once in a while I make a waffle at a breakfast buffet restaurant, but I am sure yours would be better.
