MY FRIEND NANCY S’ WAFFLES
A satisfying wholesome treat – Prepare a batch ahead of time and keep them in the freezer to pop in the toaster for when you are on the go.
1 Cup Water (Soak 1/2 cup Raisins or other preferred dried fruit in water over night or for 15 minutes minimum – This will add a certain zest and a little more sweetness. The longer soaked the sweeter the water will be.)
Nuts – If you’d like to add nuts to this recipe soak them overnight as well (1/2 half cup chopped or minced)
3 tablespoons of Butter (Unsalted always)
2 Cups of Flour (1 cup Millet flour & 1 cup Buckwheat for most alkalinity)
1 Teaspoon Real Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon of ground Cardamom
1 Tablespoon of Pure Vanilla Extract
Add preferred unprocessed Sugar to taste (Remembering the raisin water)
FYI: Adding an egg will help these waffles be a bit more fluffy. However, eggs are acid ash forming. Also, the addition of eggs will create improper food combining.
Try these minus the egg at first to find that they are still quite good even without the fluffier texture.
Mix together all dry ingredients in a bowl
Mix together all wet ingredients in a blender – before adding the dry
Little by little add the dry to the already blended wet things –
Blend everything to a creamy consistency.
Allow to sit for 10 minutes
Oil or butter the waffle iron. Add mix when the iron is hot.
Sprinkle desired amounts of Flax or Sesame Seed. Close the lid of the waffle iron.
After a little while maybe 3 to 5 minutes or so, depending on your iron, gently tug on the lid to see if it will rise without sticking to the waffle. At first, keep a real sharp eye on them because these waffles bake up a little differently than waffles made with wheat and other grains.
Enjoy these tasty morsels with some melted butter & pure Grade A or B Maple Syrup.
