Breakfast for Dinner - Waffles

I love having breakfast for dinner! There is just something so yummy about eating waffles or pancakes at anytime of the day. Normally, I just like to go to Cracker Barrel to eat their pancakes, but when you don't to leave the house or spend the money these waffles are just as delicious! This is just a basic recipe so you can add fruit (mmm, blueberries), nuts or spices (cinnamon or nutmeg) to jazz it up.

Homemade Waffle Batter

2 eggs
2 cups all purpose flour
1  3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 TBS sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat waffle iron. Beat eggs in large bowl with hand beater until fluffy. Beat in flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla, just until smooth. 

Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. 

The best way to tell if the waffle is done (without lifting the lid) is the steam. Once you put the mix in and it starts to steam profusely. Wait until the steaming stops or slows to almost a trickle - this tells you that the waffles are done!

Top with syrup, fresh fruit or homemade whipped cream
