Looking for a way to feed your family during the Nine Days?
How about… waffles?
All you need is one (or, in our case, two) of these:
And a good recipe:
My Father’s Waffle Recipe
Note: For best results, prepare only a single recipe at a time. When the entire Shiputzim family is home, we usually end up making about 3-4 separate recipes per meal.
- 2 cups flour
- 3 tsp baking powder (i.e. one envelope for my Israeli readers)
- scant ½ tsp salt
- 3 eggs
- 1¼ cups milk
- ¼ cup oil
Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Beat eggs, and add milk and oil. Pour liquid mixture into dry ingredients, and mix.
Pour 1 cup of batter (we use a soup ladle’s worth) into machine. Bake each waffle for 5 minutes on the highest setting. (YMMV, depending on your specific waffle maker.)
