Edna's Waffles (my great grandmother)

Linda Woodham


This is my great grandmothers recipe. I never got to meet her but my mother made these waffles every Thanksgiving Eve for dinner and every Christmas morning,( we had leftovers for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning). I have some great memories every time I make these for my family. I kept the same tradition for my family and my children know follow the tradition. My ggrandmother came from Scotland when she was 11 years old and lived in west Texas when she passed away at 79. She had 13 children. So I guess that is why this make so many waffles. please let me know if you like them.

12 or more 2 waffles

4 c
all purpose flour ( you can use self-rising flour just leave off baking soda and baking powder
1 tsp
baking soda
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
4 Tbsp
eggs, separated (room temp)
3 c
1/3 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Put all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl
separate eggs (do not put whites in plastic bowl use glass or metal)
beat whites until soft peaks
in large mixing bowl add oil and egg yolks mix well
Start by adding 1/2 cup flour to egg/oil mixture mix until blended, add 1/2 cup milk and mix, add 1/2 cup flour and mix, continue until all flour and milk or used,ending with milk.
Now you want to fold the egg whites into the batter, fold very lightly its is ok if you still have a few small lumps of whites
I start my waffle iron to heating when I start to make my batter.
You can keep this batter for 2 days after mixing, in a sealed bowl in the refrigerator. just fold gently until well mixed. I make mine up and put them in the freezer, then I can just put them in toaster or oven. Enjoy and please let me know how you like them
