strawberry patch waffles

while i don't make time for a good breakfast everyday, sunday mornings are set aside for making, or baking, a good breakfast.
that either means bacon & eggs, or something sweet. sweet is most likely a waffle. we love them. and if we happen to have fresh strawberries in the fridge, i make strawberry patch waffles. ok i stole the name from richard walker's. i use a basic waffle recipe - for 2.

classic waffles for 2
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 cup of warmed milk
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

to serve: powdered sugar for dusting and fresh strawberries, sliced

steps: combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until you get a nice batter.
get the waffle iron heated up, spray with pam, and pour enough batter to cover the iron. cook to desired consistency (about 3mins on high).

serve hot with sliced strawberries, powdered sugar - and if you eat waffles like i do, add some maple syrup and whipped cream to it all.
those boxes of waffle mixes have nothing on this simple and so easy recipe!
