Recipe for Fankhauser’s Cornmeal Waffles
Whisk in a 2 qt bowl until blended:
- 1 egg
Add to egg and whisk gently just to blend:
- 1 cup plain yogurt (or buttermilk)
- 1 cup beer, cold and effervescent
Measure into a sifter:
- 2/3 cup cornmeal (freshly ground if possible)
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
Sift onto liquids, whisk just to mix, leaving small lumps. (You may need to add a bit more flour to adjust the thickness of the batter if it appears too runny.)
- 1/4 cup oil
Sprinkle shelled sunflower seeds onto a preheated hot (just starting to smoke) well-seasoned waffle iron.
Bake until browned, about 6 minutes.
Brush with melted 1:1 butter:oil, drizzle on maple syrup, try to stop after eating just one…
For the deluxe version, you may sprinkle in cooked sausage, walnuts and/or pecans in the same manner as the sunflower seeds.
