I was up super early this morning and decided to use the time productively.
Did I clean the house?
Walk the dogs?
Take out the trash?
I made brown butter waffles. From scratch.
Here's the recipe (from Williams Sonoma: Comfort Food):
4 tbs. unsalted butter
2 cups whole milk
2 large eggs, separated
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbs sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
2 cups cherries
3 tbs orange blossom or other mild honey.
You'll also need three mixing bowls and a whisk.
So, sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. I also added a tablespoon of malted milk powder because it makes the batter taste more diner-ish.
Melt the butter over low/medium heat.
|Until the bottom starts to brown. Things starting to make sense? ;)|
|When the butter has cooled slightly, add the egg yolk, milk and vanilla. Whisk together until well blended.|
Then add it to the pre-sifted flour mixture. Don't over mix.
In another bowl, whip the egg whites until soft peaks form.
Then fold the fluff into the rest of the batter.
Pour it in your pre-heated waffle-grill (with the latch expertly fixed with a toothpick...it may be time for a new one..)
And voila! They tasted freaking delicious!
So there you have it - homemade brown butter waffles.
Pretty easy to make and the house smells ah-mazing afterwards. Definitely a recipe to try on a chilly autumn morning. A Sunday morning, specifically. These babies take a little time! They're SO worth the investment, though.
