The Best Waffles Ever.

So, there's this wildly popular blog by the name of Orangette that you've probably read before, and Molly at Orangette also has an amazing book called A Homemade Life (read this book - it is wonderful!). I recently started reading the book, and love it. It's fabulous writing, and great recipes. We had her French Lemon Yogurt Cake last weekend, and it was amazing. Glorious. My favorite lemony cake ever. The recipe is online right here. And, along with marvelous desserts, she has numerous salad and vegetarian main dish recipes on her blog, as her husband is vegetarian.

And, this weekend, I tried one of the two waffles recipes that she recently posted here. I meant to do the overnight version, but ended up going to bed without making the batter, so... I tried the "morning of" recipe, and Oh. Oh, heaven. I've been looking for a waffle recipe that would rival the waffles the kids had eaten (and we'd tasted) at a cafe in downtown Olympia that is now out of business... they were the best waffles I'd ever had. Crisp on the outside, even after being adorned with butter and syrup and devoured by the kids. The remains that we tasted on their plates were still outside-crisp and inside-tender and delicious after 30 minutes of brunch eating... crazy good.
This is exactly what I was looking for, and it's not surprising that this recipe is often referred to as the Waffle of Insane Greatness. I'm interested to try the overnight recipe now since Molly at Orangette thinks it's superior. Either way... whip up some waffles this weekend!!

Ok. We just had these for brinner and I am stuffed to the brim. I ate 1 1/2 waffles and would've had more if Abby wasn't fighting for more herself:) DELICIOUS!!! I have a Belgian waffle maker and it worked fine for it. It took me a couple tries to figure out how much batter to use. This recipe made 4 in my maker. I also kept turning the heat up since I like a nice golden crisp waffle. The last one was perfection:)

Cool Jen! Glad you liked 'em.

I think I'll try Molly's overnight recipe too, along with these to compare them this weekend when my brother and his family stay over. A waffle competition... no one loses. ;o)
