Writing about the yummy waffles in my last post really made me look forward to our Sunday waffle madness!
I'm always in charge of making the waffles and my hubby takes care of the rest. Aren't I spoiled?
For a real (Waffle House style) American breakfast, you need scrambled eggs and hash browns. Latter are, if you don't want to make them from scratch, impossible to find in Germany. So, we started improvising with so called Kartoffelpuffer. Kartoffelpuffer over here are usually eaten for a sweet dinner, with apple sauce and a sugar & cinnamon mix. Also very yummy!
2 cups flour
4 tbsp. white sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
4 egg yolks
4 egg whites
1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups milk
Sift all the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add all the moist ingredients, except for the egg whites, to it and mix until you get a smooth batter.
In a separate small bowl beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites gently into the batter. The
egg whites make the waffles light and fluffy, so be sure not to destroy it's texture while mixing.
