It’s snowing again…I am starting to think I live in North Dakota and not southern Indiana. But to my kid’s delight, school was cancelled. And of course Thursday is the day I am a bit skinny on help when school is cancelled. Working mom is at home today.
I decided to take advantage of this by making the kids a homemade breakfast. Well, semi-homemade breakfast.
The kids picked waffles…banana waffles is what I decided to make.
A quick pop under some hot water will thaw it out in a matter of minutes.
While I have made waffles from scratch, I use mixes most of the time and then doctor them up.
I pretty much follow the recipe on the back of the package.
I combine the mix and water. When I am adding puree, I reduce the water by a quarter of a cup and only use half the oil.
I then add a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
Make sure you grease your waffle griddle after each waffle.
Kid tested and mother approved!
While the whip cream is tasty, I prefer some good old maple syrup on mine.
