Waffles are really quite easy to make as the batter is about the same as what is used to make pancakes. The only real difference between the two is how they look; whereas pancakes are round and are baked on a griddle or frying pan, waffles are either square or heart-shaped with a honeycomb surface that are baked in their own machine.

I will say that waffles are thicker, more bread-like, and crisper and their grids do make ideal pockets for the maple syrup and butter. You have the choice of buying either an electric or stovetop Waffle iron and both consist of two metal grids, facing each other, that are held together with hinges.

To make a waffle you pour the batter onto one side of the iron, the second metal grid is then closed over the batter and the waffle is cooked until crisp and golden brown. (It is always a good idea to read your manufacturer's instructions before using your waffle iron as there can be differences between models.) Of course, waffles are perfect with a pat of butter and drizzling of maple syrup but they are also excellent with whipped cream and fresh berries.

1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons unsalted buter, melted

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
In another bowl, lightly beat the egg, then add milk and whisk the mixture.
Add the mixture to the dry bowl, and stir it until it is combined. Stir in the melted butter.

If you have a waffle maker, oil it lightly with a brush. Using a ladle, pour the batter into the waffle according to your waffle's recommended level. Close the waffle lid and wait for the waffle to bake to a nice golden brown and crisp at the sides.

Best when served hot! Serve with a scoop of ice cream or with maple syrup. I love mine with just butter!
