{waffle madness}

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
12 cups vegetable oil
14 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.

    I know! It really doesn’t take thaat long to bake some waffles. It’s so worth the little extra work and waay better than popping those frozen ones in the toaster. ;) I’ve actually never seen those over here in Germany. But waffles over here aren’t eaten for breakfast that much anyways. It’s more of a Sunday afternoon snack, like eating cake (also very common here for Sunday afternoons).
    Thank you for the invite — I’m partying with you now! :)

    Those look VERY yummy! I will have to try them, since I don’t have a waffle recipe that makes me want to make them very often.
