Waffles with Vanilla Custard!

Another great recipe from Mennonite Girls Can Cook.

The vanilla custard reminds me of the one I used to eat back home in South Africa, LOVE IT.


WAFFLES (makes about 4 - 5 round waffles)
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 egg and
2 egg whites - save yolks for sauce
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
6 Tbsp oil

Preheat waffle iron. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Add buttermilk, oil and eggs; mix until smooth (with hand held mixer). Spread onto hot waffle iron. (leave room around edge for batter to spread) You may want to spray or wipe the Teflon with an oily paper towel, just before cooking the first waffle. It should be fine then until the next time you use it.


2 cups milk, divided
2 (rounded) Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. vanilla powder or 1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 egg yolks

In a small pot, heat 1 cup milk until it begins to boil. (med heat) While you are doing this:
mix dry ingredients, add just a little of the 2nd cup of milk, blend the egg yolks in well, and then the rest of the milk. Just before the milk in the pot begins to boil up, stir in the sauce and stir with whisk until the sauce begins to cook and thicken. Done!
