What does one do when her partner gives up his studio?
Yeah, you guessed it. The answer is ‘wait’. I hate waiting, man-like I will “Hulk-SMASH” if you put me on hold for longer than the length one Katy Perry song, but what was I to do? Take pictures of my favorite waffles with a camera phone?
Are you kidding me? I don’t think so. Besides, the site is called I bake he shoots, not I bake then shoot with my crappy Samsung.
The good news is…waiting-time is over. The bad news is…nonexistent. Didn’t you read what I wrote? Waiting. Time. Is. Over! Cue my sigh of relief, please.
Now that waiting-time is over, breakfast-time is here…and for me, breakfast isn’t breakfast without Waffles of Insane Greatness. I mean, there are some damn fine substitutions out there: French Toast Sausages come to mind, Classic Cornbread with butter and jam is always a winner, and did you know that Pancake Pops are a thing?
Nonetheless, I will always want for waffles. They are easy, versatile and delicious.
How about you? What’s your favorite breakfast?
Waffles of Insane Greatness Recipe
Recipe for Waffles of Insane Greatness from Food Network
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup cornstarch

- 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- Butter and pure maple syrup, for serving
- In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.
- Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix well. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes.
- Heat a waffle iron about 10 minutes before the batter is ready.
- Do not oil the waffle iron. There's enough oil in the batter.
- Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles. (each waffle consisted of 1 cup of batter)
