Waffle Week, Part 2

Welcome back to Waffle Week! (Isn't that better than welcoming you back to "Pull out your hair before the holidays week"?)

Entry two for Waffle Week is a little bit of a surprise when you eat it!


5 eggs
1/4 cup sugar

2-1/4 cups orange juice
3/4 cup vegetable oil
zest of one orange
1 tsp lemon extract
4-1/2 cups flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup powdered milk

Beat the eggs with the sugar until well combined and smooth. Add half o
f the flour and half of the orange juice, and beat until smooth, then add all of the other ingredients. Beat at low speed until combined, then at medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes, until smooth. Bake in your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's directions.
These waffles have just a little tang to them. They're good with honey or with apricot syrup. They are also evidently a good afternoon snack, plain, as Ryan will attest.

Meanwhile, Thor is dreaming of cookies with his picture on the box, just like the ones he got a couple of years ago. He likes that Milk Bones recognizes a full sized dog when they see one.

I've never seen those extra large milk bones. The photo really does look like you.

I'd love these waffles. Good thing Santa seems to be sending a waffle maker to my house...

LOVE that box! It does look like Thor, and I'm glad someone realizes dogs come in all sizes and treats aren't one size fits all.

Thanks for the reminder, I love waffles. I wonder where my waffle maker is, bet it is in France!!! Diane

Hmmm - do we have waffles with bacon coming? Not that I'd eat them - who am I kidding of course I would! Orange with apricot sounds lovely. I can't believe how big Mark is!!

Love Thor's cookies - rather like getting your photo on the Wheaties box, right? g

I'm not sure if I'd love or dislike them... depends how tangy they are! :) Creative!

Must. Make. Waffles.

Sue said...

I like waffles, but I have no waffle maker.Oh well, I 'll have to go out and have someone else make, deliver them, then clean up afterwards.

How did Thor get his picture on the Wheaties or Milkbone box? Fudge wants to know.

As always, when I see many (most?)members of your family, I'm struck dumb by the strength of that red-headed gene.

Pam said...

Oh those waffles sound so good! Thor is so darn cute.
