Winnie the Pooh Waffles with Honey

These waffles are from Tessa Kiros' book Apples for Jam. I picked them to try for I Heart Cooking Clubs' theme of the week: White As Snow. Even though the waffles aren't quite white, I think they'll be an okay submission this week. They are made with whipped egg whites, and served with some white clouds of whipped cream, so that makes them applicable, right?

We love waffles around here, and I'm always up for trying another waffle recipe, even though we do have a family favorite. These ones were pretty good! The kids loved them and my daughter said they were "totally scrumptious" :) They are pretty substantial waffle, ready to stand up to lots of toppings and not get mushy. The boys called the waffles crispy and crunchy, which they liked. I ended up getting 7 smallish waffles out of the recipe.

Tessa Kiros -- Apples for Jam

2 eggs, separated
1/3 cup superfine sugar -- I used powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 and 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup milk

Whisk the egg whites until the are fluffy and just holding soft peaks.

In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar and vanilla until creamy. Whisk in the better, then the flour and baking powder. (At this point my batter was really thick.) Add the milk, then fold in the egg whites.

Heat a waffle iron.

Add about 5 tablespoons of batter into each space and close the machine.

Cook, following the manufacturer's instructions, until the waffles are golden brown.

For this recipe I used my Villaware Disney Winnie the Pooh Waffler / Waffle Maker that has Pooh on one side and his buddy Tigger on the other of each waffle. The kids love character waffles, and what can I say? -- I do too :)

The waffles were great with whipped cream and honey and also some blueberries, what a fun "no school day" breakfast treat :)

They look white to me! Oh, so cute, and that whipped cream just sends them over the top...great choice. I don't make waffles often enough for my family. Bet the kids remember these for a long time.

Very cute :-) I love waffles, so it is actually a good thing that I don't have a waffle maker - otherwise I would be making them all the time, and we all know how that winds up. Lovely treat for your kids though - and the big kids :-)
