valentine's waffles


I didn't get a picture so I borrowed this pretty one from here

We had some friends over last night for a waffle party, and my mom's sour cream waffles were a huge hit. They are so fluffy and just the perfect amount of sweet, so you can always go back for seconds. The strawberry whipped cream is pretty and pink and is perfect for valentine's day! 

While we were on the topic of v-day last night, it came to my attention that some people don't like breakfast in bed, which I hadn't considered before but does make sense. I for one love it, and have also been known to take whatever is for dessert on a weekend straight up to bed. It always feels like a little luxury. Who's for or against it?

Here's the recipe - hope you enjoy!

Waffles:

1 egg yolk
1 cup sour cream
½ cup milk
3 TBL butter, melted
1 cup flour
2 Tsp. sugar
1 Tsp. baking powder
½ Tsp. salt
½ Tsp. baking soda
1 egg white, stiffly beaten

Preheat waffle maker. Put all ingredients except egg white in a large mixer
bowl. Beat on low until moistened. Increase to medium, mix until smooth.
By hand, gently fold in beaten egg white. Pour ½ cup batter in center of
grid. Close waffle maker, bake until golden, 3-3 ½ minutes.

Strawberry Cream:
½ pint whipping cream
1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
1 package frozen sliced strawberries, thawed

Whip together cream and powdered sugar to form soft peaks. Fold in the
thawed strawberries with some juice for flavoring.

yum!

this reminds me of when we were little, waking up valentine's morning to see a kitchen dressed in pinks and reds with the valentine 'mailbox' and a big stack of waffles in the middle.

also, i haven't had or wanted breakfast in bed since younger birthdays. i think it's because i felt lonely in there by myself while everyone else was enjoying my birthday breakfast without me!
