King’s Waffles

                                    King’s Waffles with Kids In The Kitchen

Does your man crave a hearty meal?  Try these waffles, fit for a king, and he will be satisfied for sure!   Are your kids hungry?  Even the young princes and princess are thrilled to sit at the table for this tasty treat.  No complaints!

I love to make these with the kids in the kitchen.    This is a great recipe to learn about measuring wet and dry ingredients.  It is an easy food for them to learn and they are fascinated with the change in texture that transforms on the waffle machine. It happens quickly and keeps the interest of even the youngest kids with short attention spans.  From liquid batter to solid squares begging for tasty toppings, this treat is fun to make and sure to please everyone.

My four year old daughter helped measure all the ingredients and turned on the mixer for me as we added each ingredient to the mix.  I don’t let her opperate the waffle machine just yet for safety reasons.  But she is thrilled to help make the batter for waffles, and loves to set the table too.  We also make extra batter to put into the refrigerator to make for next time.  I store it in glass half gallon jars.  Everytime I open the refridgerator she asks if we are going to make that batch of waffles now.  She just loves waffles.

This is a double batch and makes 24 waffles (or six sheets of four square waffles).

King’s Waffles

4 cups Flour (unbleached, natural, all purpose)
6 Tbsp Evaporated Cane Juice (natural sugar)
2 Tbsp Baking Powder (non aluminum)
2 tsp Sea Salt (my favorite is Celtic Sea Salt)
4 Eggs (fresh, local, free range)
1/2 Cup Butter (grass fed, melted)
2 Cups Milk (fresh, raw, grass fed)
1 Cup Greek Yogurt

Blend all ingredients together. 
Bake according to your waffle machine instructions. 

Our waffle machine cooks a sheet of 4 waffles in 90 seconds.  This step goes really fast for us, and we can bake this whole batch of 24 waffles (that is 6 times of putting batter in the machine) in 10 minutes.  This quick meal is so handy to feed a hungry family of 8 people. 

Top these with whatever toppings you like.  Try maple syrup, nutbutter and honey, blueberries, strawberries, apples, caramel, honey butter, whip cream, chocolate syrup, powdered sugar, fruit syrups, stewed fruits, crispy pecans or cashews, etc. 

We love to top these with organic grade B maple syrup, with a side of fresh fruit, turkey sausages and bacon, and raw milk to drink.   The kids love to sprinkle on powdered sugar and real whip cream too.  I love to eat them with apple butter. 

These are nutrient dense!

Two large waffles served with maple syrup yields:
397 calories, 18 gm protein, 612 IU Vit A, 44.6 IU Vit D, 300 mg calcium, 3.9 mg iron, 246 mg potassium, 41.5 mcg selenium, 116 mcg folate, 26.2 mg magnesium, 174 mg Omega 3, the full spectrum of amino acids, and numerous vitamins, minerals, and trace elements. This analysis came from Nutrition Data  You can put your recipe ingredients into the data base and it gives you a nice report of the nutritional content.  It is close, but not exact, because the quality of fresh ingredients used in your own home can vary.

The nutrition is higher than this data if using fresh raw milk, fresh grass fed free range eggs, grass fed butter, grass fed yogurt, sprouted flour, and fruits for Vit C and antioxidants.  I use Greek yogurt, because it is higher in protein than regular yogurt.  Fresh Greek yogurt made from milk from grass fed cows yields the most nutrition.

Enjoy these waffles anytime of day. This is a healthy breakfast, lunch, or supper.   So many delicious ways to enjoy, and fit for a king!

Mathew 22: 1-4
Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come. Then he sent some more servants and said, “Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.”
