Sunday Supper Waffles

Supper Waffles for Sunday Breakfast..

"Country women vote the waffles made with four eggs a top favorite."
~Farm Journal Country Cookbook

From the Farm Journal's Country Cookbook: Homemade Breads and Country Butter section. I figured you can't go wrong with fresh eggs, butter and buttermilk!

This was my grandmother's hand mixer.

I can still hear her whipping away in the kitchen with her blue mixing bowls. We use them instead of an electric hand mixer. Works like a charm!

Golden goodness.

In case you would like some for Sunday Supper.. I cut the recipe in half and it worked great!

Um. YUM. I'm on my way...I've got real maple syrup to bring! Chris' grandmother sent it to us from her Amish friend in PA. It's SO GOOD. (Hmmm...syrup from PA, honey from PA...I'm seeing a pattern here. I think we need to move!)

I love the steam...and now, I want a waffle iron and a hand mixer. I was *this* close to buying one at the thrift shop a while back. Hmmm...I wonder if my grandmother had one? I may have to ask...

The smells and sounds of comfort...being made in the kitchen.
-wish was eating at your house today...that looks so good. We eat waffles sometimes too for dinner and favorite topping is sourcream and rasberry jam.
My grandmother used to have a cast iron waffle iron that used to go on the Norway the waffle irons are shaped like hearts.
Have nice dinner.

Mmmmm... they look wonderful and fluffy. I've always hankered after a waffle iron. I too have my nanny's egg beater - there's something so wonderful about a hand propelled device that is so very hardworking and efficient. Enjoy!

I was just thinking this morning about making waffles but I don't have a waffle maker. Now you've really inspired me to go out and get one so I can try your recipe. :)

Anything with one cup butter HAS to be good! Certainly worthy of a Sunday breakfast!

Love the beater - I had forgotten about those. Handy little tools.

I LOOOOOVE hand mixers. There is one at the cabin and I find something to mix always when we are there.

That waffle photo.. I could hang that on my wall. That is a great photo..yum-o.

I will tuck the recipe in my box and remember you as I am mixing.

Yummy. I love breakfast for dinner. We had it last night -- fried mush served w/butter & syrup, scrambled eggs and bacon.
Love that you use Grandma's hand mixer!

Love Brinner! And you can't go wrong with waffles. The one thing that would have made your waffles better - near impossible to do, my friend - is BACON. The smell of waffles and BACON (yes, in all caps) combined is enough to make this girl swoon. Doughbird's been on the lookout for a waffle/BACON aftershave. He knows me too well...

The handmixer. You taught me something as I read and re-read your post. Using these little things that have memories and love attached make even the most mundane tasks a joy, for every task is then infused with the beauty of the memory.

Happy Tuesday to you, my friend!

We love waffles here, a Sunday favorite for sure, made on a cast iron waffle iron we found in a alleyway garbage heap years ago.

*but mostly just wanted to say I loved your poem on Sarah of Bee House Hives blog about the moon. Cake and Dancing Queen! So funny!

Ah, the ol' hand mixer. My mom has one and now I really wish I had one too. I'll have to ask her about it. Maybe she'll share.

You're photos are amazing... makes me want to reach out and grab a hot waffle! Yum!

Thanks for sharing that recipe. I can't wait to try it. :)

That looks so yummy! I have been so hungry for things like that in my little diet journey that I have actually had to leave rooms when people were talking about food I love. I even made a flourless Bittersweet chocolate cake for a co-worker last week that I never even tasted. Darn weight watchers, I may have to figure out how to adapt waffles to fit their plan. lol
