Everybody's waffles for the weekend

Waffles, originally uploaded by mysterybridgers.

(Waffle serving suggestion: Sliced strawberries, raspberries, yogurt, pure maple syrup. Eating them with a fork is advised.)

We had a waffle jones this weekend. Perfect waffles seem to be a lifelong journey, and I'm thinking we have a way to go on that road, but here is the recipe so far:

(This makes 7 to 8 waffles. That's a lot, NO ONE could eat more than two, but they freeze well.)

Heat up your waffle iron, and have some veggie oil spray on hand to grease up the iron. These waffles have enough oil that they resist sticking on their own, but the spray helps to seal the deal.

Put all the dry ingredients in one bowl:

1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup corn starch
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Then put all the wet ingredients in another bowl:

3 eggs, beaten
3 Tablespoon sugar
3 Tablespoons melted butter
1 cup yogurt (we like Nancy's because it is soooooo tart.)
1 cup plain soymilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (or just use vanilla soymilk, I guess.)

Add the dry to the wet, stir till they are incorporated, no more than 20 to 30 strokes of the fork

Ladle this onto a waffle iron, cook it to it's highest setting to get some crispiness.

These are best eaten right as they come off the iron, or let them cool, then tear them into quarters, put them in the freezer, then toast them in a toaster oven till crispy.
