Sweet potato Waffles
Molly like Erin loves a big hearty breakfast. Over the years we have found that waffles work well. Make a mix for the week, then in the am heat the waffle iron, pour batter in and wait for a hot crispy waffle. We have done regular and usually every fall we have a spell of pumpkin waffles but this year we found a sweet potato one that is a winner. The recipe also says that you can make ahead and reheat in the toaster.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
2 TBSP sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 - 1 1/3 c milk
1 cup mashed orange sweet potatoes
4 TBSPS butter, melted
1) In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
2) In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, sweet potato and butter.
3) Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mis until just combined.
4) To make waffles: Heat a waffle iron and brush with high-heat oil. Ladle the batter into waffle iron, being careful not to overfill. Cook until golden brown.
5) To make pancakes- add a little extra mils to thin the batter. Heat a large cast iron pan or griddle over medium - low heat. Add a small amount of high-heat oil just to coat. Spoon batter into the pan. cook until bubbles begin to form in the center of the pancakes. Flip the pancakes and cook until brown. While trying to find a waffle Maeve might enjoy, I found a peanut butter one that was also very good.
