Sunday is always family breakfast time. About 95% of the time, I cook breakfast. Occasionally, I order breakfast from a waffle house for the boys, but normally I cook. This Sunday, I picked out what I would make versus one of the boys choosing. I decided on waffles. I started with my favorite basic waffle recipe, Naked Vegan Waffles. But, I wanted a different flavor for them, so I decided to add a couple of ingredients from a non-vegan recipe. Also, I always use unsweetened almond milk. Somehow I picked up unsweetened vanilla flavor almond milk last time I bought it, but it didn't affect the flavor of the waffles at all.
I bought a scale not too long ago and I'm trying to get used to using versus measuring everything out, so I thought I'd just dump the flour in the bowl. I looked at the flour and saw 1/4 cup weighed 30 grams. OK, so far, so good. I was going to use mostly all-purpose flour, but I knew I didn't have enough so I planned on using whole wheat, too. I needed 2½ cups of flour. So, 30 grams x 4 = 120 grams per cup of flour. That meant 2½ cups of flour weighs 300 grams, right? Of course. So, when I was doing the mental math, instead of 30 x 4, I calculated 40 x 4 and came up with 160 grams per cup or 400 grams total. By the time I realized that was wrong, I had 400 grams of white and wheat flours in my bowl. If I tried to scoop some out, it would be a mixture of the two. OOPS! Well, I just adjusted all of the other ingredients by multiplying them by 1.33 to get the proper amount. And YES, I did use a calculator for that. Sheesh!
Once I had the basic ingredients in the bowl, I added 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of vanilla. The batter was a light tan color. I used my double-sided Belgium waffle maker to cook these up and let me tell you, they came out perfectly. I sprayed the waffle iron before putting in the batter each time and I had absolutely no sticking.
Since I had inadvertently increased the recipe, I had a couple of waffles left over to freeze for later enjoyment. These are waffles that my sons really like. I highly recommend them.
