Local Whole Grain Waffles
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
¾ cup yogurt, Side Hill Farm, Hawley MA
¼ cup oil or melted butter
1 tablespoon honey (optional)
½ teaspoon cinnamon, ground from sticks if you have it
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ cups local whole-wheat flour, Upingill Farm, Gill MA
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 pinch salt
1. Whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, optional honey, cinnamon, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl.
2. Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk together just until the large lumps disappear.
3. Before heating the waffle iron, lightly oil the griddle. When it is nice and hot, ladle batter onto the center of the iron. Follow the instructions that came with your waffle maker to know how long it should be cooked (mine takes about 4 minutes each).
4. Top with local maple syrup and seasonal fruit
