Great Vintage Yard Sale Find!

This great waffle maker is decades old and was found by Ernie’s mother at a yard sale ages ago. We use it regularly. Homemade waffles are definitely worth making if you can. Our recipe comes from by baba’s old cookbook from 1958.

Here is the recipe:

1-1/4 cup flour – we use all whole wheat flour as it works just as well

2 tsp baking power

1 cup milk

2 egg yolks beaten thick

4 tbsp melted fat

2 egg whites beaten stiff

First whip up the egg whites in a separate bowl. You can do this by hand (takes a bit longer), or by machine. Then whisk flour and BP together really well. Combine milk, egg yolks and fat and mix well. Pour wet mixture into dry and stir until just mixed (don’t over mix). Then FOLD in egg whites. Cook on waffle iron.

We double this recipe when we make it so we have some to freeze. These waffles are even better when toasted. Eat with butter, maple syrup, fruit, nuts or whatever you like.

    The old electric waffle irons work better than the newer ones. Go back 40 or 50 years (or more) and you’ve really got a quality product.

    I agree with Jimmy. I prefer the old American-made (Hobart) K-5 KitchenAid stand mixers over the new ones manufactured in China. The K-5 I have now is my second. The previous on I had for 14 years and it was used when I bought it. I found my present mixer at a garage sale four years ago for $25!
