Mike used to make what he called "Storybook Waffles" for the kids almost every weekend growing up. That's why it was such a treat to have him make them for his grandson this last weekend! They are fluffy and delicious, and the perfect special treat.
3 eggs, separated
2 tablespoons lavender sugar (Order HERE)
2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
(If you sub milk for butter milk, replace your baking soda with 2 tsp baking powder instead.)
Fresh whipped cream
Sprinkle of lavender sugar
We always use this fun circus waffle iron. It makes breakfast just that much more of a celebration.
Love Peggy's cute cake wallpaper in her pantry!
In a medium sized bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Add sugar and beat 30 seconds longer, set aside. Beat egg yolks and milk together in a large bowl. Add flour, melted butter, salt and baking powder or soda, mix well. Gently fold the egg whites into the flour. Cook in a preheated waffle iron. Top with strawberries and cream and then enjoy!
