Nutella Waffles







You may notice that I enjoy visiting many tables in the bloggy world and I like to participate in some of the  parties they host. (see Link Parties on tabs above!) I'm often inspired to give new things a try in my own kitchen and wanted to share one of them with you today.  It's a great, kid friendly recipe shared by Cole's party called Tuesday's at the Table for Nutella Waffles.

Here is my version of the original she shared:

Ingredients


1 1/4 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, separated
1 1/4 cups milk
1/3 cup Nutella
3 tablespoons melted butter
(original version called for 1 teaspoon vanilla...of which I was out at the time...and it was still good...so I left it out of this version!) 


Directions
  1. Separate your 2 eggs, putting the whites in the bowl of your mixer and the yolks in a mixing bowl.  Turn the mixer on and let it whip up the whites until stiff peaks form.
  2. Meanwhile, add to the yolks the milk, Nutella and melted butter.  Whisk to blend.
  3. Add to the Nutella blend all of the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder and soda).  Stir until it is all combined.
  4. Add the stiffened egg whites to the batter, folding it in until all of the ingredients are fully combined.
  5. Prepare the waffles in your waffle iron according to the manufacturers directions.
Serve warm, as is, or consider topping with fruit, whipped topping and/or a smear of more Nutella!
I love that this waffle recipe has very little sugar and are so good they don't need to be drowned in syrup.

Make extra and freeze or refrigerate for fast breakfast meals later.  Let fresh made waffles cool completely on cooling racks and store in freezer bags.  Just pop into a toaster and heat until warmed through.
Tami's Tip: Blends You Can Bag!
Breakfast in our home on a school day needs to be fast and appealing to a picky eater (ahem...not naming names but thinking of a certain young man...still at home...last year of school...but not naming names!) By making this ahead and refrigerating them, I have toaster breakfasts all week. That's why I like to keep a few pre-made mixes on my pantry shelf so I'm more inclined to make a fresh batch on a Saturday morning. At some point, I have to make it from scratch, but on that day I make several bagged versions of the mix ahead of time, like this:
label some bags
line them up and as I add the ingredients to my mixing bowl for that day's fresh batch, I fill each bag too
this basket of mixes with the printed recipe card goes on my pantry shelf right next to the cereal.

{Yes...you are seeing correctly.  Those are small containers of cereal beside the waffle basket.  I confess that I use this method of portion control to help me watch my calorie intake!  It's very convenient...just add milk to cover the cereal and I have 100-120 calorie portions of cereal and milk ready to eat!}
