We made these waffles with my parents’ barnyard waffle maker. You can have a waffle chick, cow, horse, or barn. I prefer the chick because it’s cute and the barn because it's big.
I am not sure where this recipe came from. It requires 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, ¾ cup cornmeal, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 package active dry yeast, 1 teaspoon vanilla, ½ teaspoon salt, 1 ¾ cups milk, 2 eggs, and 1/3 cup oil or melted butter. We substituted some of the flour for whole-wheat pastry flour.
The waffles are crisp on the outside and light on the inside. We ate ours slathered with pure maple syrup. If you make these, you won’t regret it!
