Who knew you could use your leftover beer for waffles. (Does beer expire??) I was looking for some fancy Belgium Waffles to make but realized I didn’t have the time to make this really buttery sugary Snooty concoction and then stumbled upon this. Cheaters written all over it. Time savers dream. These were good. Not earth shattering, but good. If you’re in a pinch for time and have to have waffles give these a try. Thanks Sarah of the Sugar Hit!
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup beer
- 1 cup milk (or buttermilk)
- 1 stick of butter or 1/2 cup
- 12 Tablespoons sugar or maple syrup
Mix dry ingredients together. Make a well in the center and combine eggs, milk, butter, beer. Mix well. Batter will be very lumpy, don’t worry it all cooks down. Meanwhile fire up that waffle iron and get it nice and hot – tsssssss. Pour just enough batter to slightly cover the bottom. This will expand and rise as it cooks so don’t over pour or you’ll be wiping up the counter tops.
Top with whatever kinds of topping you like. Confectioners sugar, syrup, jams and jellies, nachos (just kidding!). Makes 7 batches of my heart shaped waffles! Sweet.
