There is a woman that I would like to introduce to you. She is a mama to 3 kiddos, incredibly talented singer and baker, (and most importantly) she LOVES Jesus!
I have been blessed to know her from school and when I finally made my way into Facebookland, I was so excited to reconnect with her!
Jessica Rivera (also know as @sing_pray_bake on Twitter and Instagram) is a fantastic cook and baker and she has readily agreed to let me share one of her recipes with y’all today!
I hope you enjoy these delicious waffles she is sharing today.
Good morning! It’s too early on a Saturday morning and I can’t sleep. Hopefully, you are! When you awaken from your blissful slumber do yourself a favor and make these waffles! Your family will thank you –
Note: I get that not everyone loves coconut like I do, just use all milk. I get that not everyone likes almond extract like I do, just use all vanilla extract. Yes, you can use regular sugar, or splenda, stevia, or whatever it is you use in place of the brown sugar…but come on…its brown sugar!
…but my recipe…just the way it is…just YUM!
1 3/4 cups unbleached, all-purpose or Cup for Cup GF substitute
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Cup good quality canned coconut milk
3/4 C milk
2 beaten egg yolks
1/2 cup good quality butter, melted but not hot
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 egg whites whipped till stiff
Waffle iron heated to medium high
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate small bowl, lightly beat the egg yolks. Make a well in the center of the four mixture and add the egg yolks, butter, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Mix until JUST incorporated. Yes, your batter will be lumpy!
In another bowl, whip the egg whites until you have stiff peaks. Carefully fold the egg whites into the batter being careful not to deflate them. Fold in completely, but do not stir. Yes, your batter will be very lumpy!
Cook waffles according to your waffle iron and preference.
Seriously, are these not the most incredible sounding waffles EVER!?
I would love to know if you try them and if you change the recipe at all. I am thrilled to bring this recipe to you and maybe, just maybe I will be able to share something from Jessica again soon!
In His Grace.
