1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / X-Wing Waffles with Microwaved M&M's - Craft a Snack on: April 10, 2009 10:03:07 AM
Last Sunday for breakfast I made a batch of waffles for breakfast.  I make a whole batch a freeze the leftovers for tasty waffles during the week. My last ladle full of batter wasn't a full ladle so the end result was a snowflake waffle rather than a circle. Later that night I seized the opportunity to make a delicious snack with this last waffle. I broke it into four little waffle sections which, looked like x-wing waffles. I then microwaved a fun pack size of M&M's for about a minute, just until the shells started to crack and placed them in the little waffle indentations (do these have a name?).  Speaking of microwaved M&M's, one of the most delicious adaptations of a candy that I've found.




Behold the X-Wing Waffles with Microwaved M&M's

The waffle recipe that I used was from Mark Bitman's "How to Cook Everything"

Ingredients
   ~    Canola or other neutral oil for brushing on waffle iron
   2    cups all-purpose flour
       tsp. salt
   2    Tbsp. sugar
   1    tsp. baking soda
   1    cups buttermilk (see Note), or 1 cups sour cream or plain yogurt thinned with cup milk (I used the sour cream thinned with 1/4 cup of milk)
   2    eggs, separated
   4    Tbsp. ( stick) butter, melted and cooled
       tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
Steps

   1. Brush the waffle iron lightly with oil and preheat it.
   2. Combine the dry ingredients. Mix together the liquid ingredients, reserving the egg whites in a separate bowl.
   3. Beat the egg whites with a whisk or electric mixer until they hold soft peaks. Fold them gently into the batter.
   4. Spread ⅓ cup batter onto the hot waffle iron and bake until done, usually 3 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately or keep warm for a few minutes in a low oven.
