This post’s title/quote comes from the first (and best, IMO) Shrek movie.
I bought the waffle iron from a garage sale that was down the street from me. It’s old, but works great. I added cinnamon, maple sugar, and some toasted, chopped pecans to the batter made from scratch. They came out well and I hope that the ones that I froze will reheat well and taste just as good as the fresh ones. This is the first time I’ve made frozen waffles from scratch, so I hope they’re just as good (if not better) than Egos/Bisquick. Ingredients
1-3/4 cup flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1-3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
optional flavors to add (not necessarily all together): vanilla, cinnamon, maple sugar, peanut butter, Nutella, chocolate chips, nuts (walnuts, pecans, peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts) -in other words, get creative!
Mix the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Create a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the wet ingredients. Use whisk to combine-lumps are okay. Add nuts/chocolate chips in and stir to combine. Use about 1/3 cup batter per waffle. Bake according to waffle iron manufacturer’s instructions. Makes about a dozen waffles. Serve warm.
