from Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook
1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup cooking oil or butter, melted (I usually use vegetable oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center of flour mixture and set aside. In another medium bowl beat eggs slightly; stir in milk, oil, and vanilla. Add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Stir until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). Pour batter on to lightly greased waffle baker and cook according to manufacturer's directions. Serve warm with syrup and a cup of coffee in your favorite mug.
I realize that they make waffle mixes where all you do is add water, but I reach domestic nirvana when I can make something from scratch just as easily as I could with a shortcut. And who doesn't love waffles???
