Jolene Martinelli, am addicted to waffles. After years of frozen
Eggos, and disappointingly flat icky homemade ones, I have finally found

waffles. I love my new waffle iron. First it was Gail Gand's yummy
Chocolate Waffles... Now it's the Classic Waffle recipe from the
booklet that came with the iron. I knew the problem was severe when I

Classic Waffles (Presto Flipside Waffle Iron Booklet)
1T baking powder
1 3/4c milk
2 eggs (I only had one so used an extra teaspoon of veg oil)
2T vegetable oil

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk
milk, eggs, oil in medium bowl. Whisk milk mixture into dry
ingredients just until dry ingredients are thoroughly moistened.
