“The perfect weekend accompaniment: Amish Friendship Bread waffles topped with sliced bananas and fresh maple syrup.”
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 12 waffles
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup oil
2 cups Amish Friendship Bread Starter
1/2 cup milk (plus 1/4 cup if needed)
- Preheat waffle iron.
- Combine flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large mixing bowl.
- In a smaller bowl, combine oil, Amish Friendship Bread starter, milk, and egg.
- Add ingredients of smaller bowl to the ingredients of larger bowl and mix on medium speed.
- Spray waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour batter onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown.
Make the waffle batter up to one day in advance and whisk well before using. Top hot waffles with 1 cup fresh or thawed blueberries, strawberries, or bananas for an extra treat.
From Paula Altenbach: “This was a simple one bowl recipe, unlike waffles which require the eggs to be separated in order to whip the egg whites and carefully them fold in. To avoid an overly sweet waffle, I used Amish Friendship batter that had been fed a day earlier and allowed to consume some of the sugars. These came out of the Belgium waffle iron steamy and tender without being overly sweet. We dropped them in a toaster to keep the crowd fed at their own pace. This actually crisped the exterior some! When I make these again I will reduce the oil to 1/4 cup and see if they will be less cake like and have a dryer exterior.”
