I HAVE THEM ALL . . .
Working from this recipe, I made four small changes: no sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon added to the melted butter as it was cooling, and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg added to the dry ingredients. Lastly, I combined and added the egg + milk to the flour and whisked ever so slightly before adding the melted butter. I had a melted butter + cold milk incident a day or so before I made these waffles, so I was cooking with a little extra caution.
This recipe is fairly straightforward: melt 6 tablespoons of butter, then add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon + 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the butter as it cools.
In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups of all purpose flour + 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt + 4 teaspoons of baking powder + 1 teaspoon of nutmeg.
In a small bowl, whisk together 12 oz of milk and two eggs. Add this mixture to the larger bowl of dry ingredients followed by the melted butter blend. Gayle from Pinterest says to be sure not to whisk all the lumps out – you just want all the ingredients incorporated.
By now you should have already heated up your waffle iron, so that’s my bad if you forgot. Ha. I currently have a tiny little Dash, but have determined that it’s time to invest in a big girl waffle iron. Leave a comment below if you have any suggestions!
I’ve really been enjoying nutmeg lately. I’ve added it to brownies, oatmeal, goat’s milk + instant espresso lattes, and almond butter cookies. Evidently, consuming nutmeg can help to relieve pain, soothe indigestion, strengthen cognitive function, detoxify, boost skin health, alleviate oral conditions, reduce insomnia, increase immune function, and improve circulation . . .
What a brilliant and thoughtful Creator God we have who has packed so many nutrients in such a pleasant flavor. I haven’t always realized or appreciated the nutritional benefit of some of the cozy, seasonal flavors and spices that are traditionally consumed this time of year.
In another news, I recently discovered Moka pots and am looking at getting one for my birthday. Should that be the case, I think there will be many more nutmeg lattes to be enjoyed.
