It’s been a while since I made a really nice breakfast for the kids. So this morning I thought of making waffles with peanut butter. My son Ruben loves anything with peanut butter! He always asks me to put peanut butter in cookies, pancakes and even in fruit shakes!
He has this funny thing of attaching his name and the word “peanut butter” in every food I let him put peanut butter in. Just like the last time when I’m making pancake, he went to me with a spoonful of peanut butter and asked me to put it in the batter mixture. I let him put it… when it’s ready he went to his sister bragging: “Hey, hey Lily… do you want to taste Ruben’s Peanut Putter Pancake? I made it, I put aaaaa… peanut butter and mix it-mix it.” (That’s how he said it. He’s only 4, how he use words and form his sentences is very adorable.)
It’s best served with pure maple syrup. Be aware of what you see in the grocery most of them were maple FLAVORED syrup. This one is the real thing: Kirkland Signature Maple Syrup 100% pure! It’s from my Mama Liz! Not exactly sure where we can get it here in the Philippines, but if anyone knows please share and let us know. 🙂
You can top your waffles with any fruits, ice cream and jam is a good idea too.
See you again soon ladies!
1 cup (130 grams) all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
1 large egg , lightly beaten
1 cup (240 ml) milk
2 tablespoons (28 grams) unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon peanut butter (optional)
1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
2. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg and milk. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, all at once, and stir just until combined. Stir in the melted butter.
Depending on your machine’s instructions, you may need to lightly spray the grids with a non stick vegetable spray. Spoon about a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of batter (or amount that is recommended in your waffle iron’s instruction book) onto one side of the hot iron. Take a knife or small metal spatula and smooth out the batter. Close the lid of the iron and bake until brown and crisp. It is best to serve the waffles immediately along with butter and maple syrup. These are also wonderful when served with fresh berries and whipped cream as a dessert.
Makes about 6 – four inch (10 cm) square waffles. Preparation time 15 minutes.
