5-Ingredient Iced-Coffee Waffles!

/ Friday, July 21, 2017

Good morning friends & newcomers! I really wanted to make you a great new brunch recipe this week. My day can't start without caffeine—are you the same way!? For me, it's all about iced coffee. So I thought these easy 5-ingredient waffles could be a fun way to get our iced-coffee fix and a tasty breakfast at the same time...

I love a waffle recipe that uses self-rising flour. Something about not having to measure baking soda or baking powder feels so sneaky and cool to me. I've never found a waffle or pancake mix that I've really loved. Do you have one you like? For the past few years, this has been my "waffle mix," simply because it's so easy and fast. 

You'll notice in the recipe below that I don't use any sugar. I'm someone who loves dousing my pancakes and waffles in lots of butter and syrup,  so I don't really need the syrup recipient to be sweet on it's own. Does that make sense? If you like your waffles sweeter, you can add a few spoonfuls of confectioners' sugar and they'll be diner-like and perfectly sweet in no time!

SERVES: 4 to 6

1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 to 2 tablespoons instant coffee
1 1/2 cups milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten 
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

1. Preheat your waffle iron.

2. Meanwhile, whisk the self-rising flour and instant coffee in a medium bowl. 

3. Add the milk, egg and butter to the flour mixture and gently stir together until just combined. Let sit 2 minutes while you spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. 

4. Spoon batter into the waffle iron and cook to your desired doneness, I usually select "medium." 

5. Serve with butter, syrup or whipped cream—you do you! 

TIP: Add 1 to 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar to the batter for sweeter waffles, if you'd like.
