Snickerdoodle Waffles

Snickerdoodle Waffles 
Waffles were not something which I had ever eaten as a child. Oh, sure, there used to be those frozen ones with the commercials on the telly, but they were never anything my mom ever bought for us.

Waffles were considered exotic food.

I did buy the frozen ones for my children, and for years and years that was my only experience with them, other than occasionally being treated to Belgian Waffles for breakfast at a restaurant.

Then when I was much older, and living in the UK, I treated myself to an electric waffle maker.  I fell in love with it and we had waffles fairly often.  Both savory and sweet.

The other day I went into Home Hardware to buy some salt for my steps and a snow brush for the car. I saw this little snowflake waffle machine which was on offer.  

What can I say?  I fell to the power of suggestion and one came home with me.

It so cute!  Isn't that snowflake adorable. It makes small waffles, each about 3 1/2 inches across I am thinking. 

I was so looking forward to making snowflake waffles for my grandsons for breakfast when they are here at Christmas time.  Can you tell I am a bit excited about that? 😁 Its a first for me!

I decided to do a test run with it this morning and make myself some snicker doodle waffles.  I used a recipe which came in the little instruction booklet.

I think its a smart thing to do. To use a recipe that comes with something the first time you use it. Just so you can test it and iron out any and all wrinkles.

I was actually really surprised at how nice they turned out. This little machine worked like a little pro. Nothing stuck and my waffles were lovely and light.

Nice and crisp on the outside, light and fluffy inside.  And with perfect snowflake indentations on one side! Color me impressed!

I can't wait to do the Grandma thing and serve these to my grandsons!  I hope that they will like them. Maybe not the snicker doodle ones, but some kind of waffles at any rate.

What child would not like a snowflake waffle! No matter the flavor!

Other than the waffle machine you probably have everything you need in your kitchen right now! 

  • all purpose plain flour
  • sugar
  • salt (I use fine sea salt)
  • milk (I use whole milk)
  • butter (I use salted and cut back on the salt in the recipe)
  • ground cinnamon
  • eggs (I use large free range)
  • cream of tartar (I did not have any but used a substitution, see recipe notes)

I almost didn't make them because when I read the recipe I saw that I needed Cream of Tartar.  I don't have any in the house and keep forgetting to buy any.

I decided to go online and see if there was anything I could substitute for cream of tartar and discovered that you can use vinegar or lemon juice. Problem solved!

With a waffle machine these are really easy to make.  I was surprised. Some recipes I have used in the past you had to beat the egg whites separately and fold them into the batter.

This recipe was very straightforward and everything went together very quickly. I was cooking these little babies before I could say jack rabbit!

I made the cinnamon sugar that you need to dust the finished waffles with first.  Very simple. Just whisk some sugar and cinnamon together!

I did the flour mixture next. I sifted the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt into a bowl to make sure all of the baking powder was evenly distributed.

You need to warm the milk and butter together just enough to melt the butter. I did this in the microwave actually, but you could do it in a saucepan. Don't let it get too hot, or  you will be waiting for it to cool down enough so that you can add it to the eggs, etc.

Beat the eggs and vanilla together in a bowl, then beat in the milk and butter.  (Make sure they are only lukewarm)  Do make sure everything is well amalgamated.

Once you have done that you start beating in the dry ingredients.  I used a whisk and did it by hand.  In three lots, making sure all of the dry ingredients were well beaten in before I added more.

If you are using vinegar/lemon instead of cream of tartar, add it with the milk/eggs.

And that was it.  Batter done I was ready to start baking my waffles. I got quite a few, more than the recipe stated, perhaps 8 - 10 refers to larger waffles. I reckon I got at least 16.  I froze the leftovers, with some baking paper in between. I think they will be great popped into the toaster for quick breakfasts.

I enjoyed these today with some fresh fruit and maple syrup. It was a really delicious breakfast to say the least!

I decided to make a little snowflake grilled cheese sandwich at the end to see how it would work out. It worked out wonderfully. Wouldn't these go down nicely with a nice cup of hot tomato soup? I think so at any rate!
