The Best 15-Ingredient Waffle Recipe
Lisa Yockelson toys with many waffle recipes in this Washington Post piece before finding "the best"—and it involves fifteen ingredients. A few notches beyond Bisquick, this recipe calls for: all-purpose flour, whole-wheat pastry flour, oat flour, spelt flour, cornmeal, and flaxseed meal, among other ingredients.
At last, the expression of the flours and meals, balanced by enough liquid and the protein-fat content of the whole eggs, raised with the right type and level of leavening agents (here, a mixture of baking powder and baking soda), and turned into a batter with a few swift strokes, is ready to be griddled between the grids of a hot waffle iron.
The fairly deep, Belgian-style irons are the best, notes Yockelson. But back to the 15 ingredients part. A little much for waffles, or worth trying since it claims to be the best?
