If I made the batter for waffles but ended up making crepes,
does it still count as completing this week's recipe ?
Only kidding, of course.
I used the old waffle iron that had belonged to Jim's mother, purchased
around 1950/1960. I had used it for the first time only a few months ago
when we made the waffles and lox recipe and had no problems.
Unfortunately, after I poured the batter in this time, it lost power and quit.
Since I had used only one ladle of the batter I had to think fast
before the egg whites collapsed. Out came the crepe pan which
I heated quickly and made five lovely and delicious crepes.
I am going to order the waffle plates to go with my Cuisinart panini
griddle so I can enjoy this delicious batter as waffles next time.Per Tricia~
These waffles were not good.
They were amazing.
Dorie shared that she was lucky enough to get a copy of this
recipe from the chef of the Parisian restaurant where she first enjoyed
them. And it was then it was lucky for us that she shared it as well.
I served mine with homemade whipped cream, golden sugar and
then small bowls of warm caramel sauce for dipping. Delicious.
Typically these recipes have inspired me to use ingredients in a new way
or to try a new technique but for this week I got a well needed reminder
at how wonderful it is to enjoy waffles at home. Especially with this recipe.
PS- I am going to make a deal with Nana to lend her my waffle iron (LOL, which
she of course gave me.....) if she will make me some of those crepes. YUM !!!
Happy French Friday ~
