Greek Yogurt Waffles Recipe

waffle

Last weekend I made waffles for my mother. My grandmother used to make them for both of us when I was a little girl, and we hadn’t eaten her waffles for years. She would always give them a little Greek twist by adding Greek yogurt to the batter, for just a hint of tartness, and a dash of cinnamon for warmth. I loved waking to the sounds of my yiayia bustling through the kitchen on a Saturday morning. It always meant that I was in for a special treat. Although she wasn’t with us to enjoy this batch, she was very much there in spirit!

Greek yogurt waffles

Makes 4

1 cup cake flour

1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Pinch of salt

2 eggs

1 tablespoon honey

1 1/3 cup Fage Greek yogurt 2%

½ cup reduced fat buttermilk or reduced fat milk

1 tablespoon butter, melted

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In a second bowl, beat the eggs until foamy. Whisk in the honey, yogurt, and milk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Whisk just until combined. Whisk in the melted butter.

Heat and oil a waffle iron. Once hot, pour about 2/3 cup of batter into the iron and cook for several minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with maple syrup or honey.
