Homemade waffles and pancakes

Homemade waffle pancake mix

Every weekend morning, the kids choose between pancakes and waffles for breakfast. I have always relied on store bought mix, assuming that making it from scratch must be so difficult.

But, tired of reading the long list of ingredients in the mix box, I finally caved in last year, deciding to give making the batter at home a try.

To my surprise, not only is it easy, there are few ingredients involved. It takes about the same time as store bought mix and I now know everything that goes in the mix.

The kids also like to pitch in and help me make it in the morning.

I have been using this recipe for a year now and sharing it with you.

(makes about 5-7 small to medium)
2 cups flour (i usually use a mix of all purpose and whatever is at hand - oats, whole wheat etc)
2 1/2 tspoon baking powder
1 tspoon sugar
Pinch of salt
1 egg
1 tspoon vanilla essence
1 1/2 cup milk
Homemade waffle pancake mix


Sieve all the dry ingredients together. 

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the egg, and milk. Mix till it all comes together as a batter - not super runny. 
Let it rest for 15 minutes and it is ready. 
If I am making pancakes, I add some chocolate chips at this point. 
For Waffles, heat the waffle iron, pour a ladle on each side and follow instructions of your iron.
For Pancakes, pour a ladle of batter on a heated pan. Spray some oil, and turn after a minute or so till they are golden brown. 
Serve with fruits and syrup. Enjoy.
