Sunday mornings are notorious for making breakfast that is usually not in the norm. It’s just something about Sunday that calls for spontaneity in the kitchen! For us, it’s either french toast or pancakes since we usually do eggs during the week. (I’d love to learn how to make eggs benedict for a special Sunday breakfast!)
This past Sunday was our first Sunday in our new (but familiar) living quarters; we’re staying with my in-laws until the person renting our home moves to a different place. My husband and I just recently arrived from a week long drive (pulling a u-haul trailer) all the way from San Francisco, CA to Tampa, FL to start our new lives so we were both craving good breakfast.
I’m not quite sure how we got on the subject of waffles but we did so I quickly searched online for a good waffle recipe (my father-in-law jokingly suggested the Bisquick mix!). The first one I came across sounded great but there were a few ingredients I needed to swap out to make it “real food friendly.”

I replaced the white flour with nutritious einkorn flour, white sugar with coconut sugar and used baking powder that had no aluminum in it. Of course the salt was unrefined and the milk and butter were raw and organic.
This recipe is really easy to make and it results in a seriously “light as a cloud” waffle. You could even have your kids help you make it — that’s how easy it is!
My in-laws said it was delicious and there was no after-taste of artificial-ness. They were even raving about the real maple syrup I put at the table (it’s soooo good).
Score for Loriel and real food recipes!
