Our family enjoys waffles for breakfast so I often make a large batch and freeze the extra for midweek. My go-to recipe has the additional step of whipping egg whites .. which on frenzied weekday mornings, makes me rethink making them. I recently found a recipe that omitted this step .. and produces a great tasting waffle, from the 1887 White House Cookbook, it's called ~ Continental Hotel Waffles. Doing a little research about this hotel, I have come to the conclusion that it's the same place now called, The Willard Intercontinental.
"A most celebrated historic Washington DC hotel, the Willard InterContinental Washington, has been the focal point for elegant dinners, meetings, and gala social events for more than 150 years. An institution, this grand Washington DC historic hotel has hosted almost every U.S. president since Franklin Pierce in 1853."
Here's the recipe ~
Put into one quart of sifted flour three teaspoonfuls of baking-powder, one teaspoonful of salt, one of sugar, all thoroughly stirred and sifted together; add a tablespoonful of melted butter, six well-beaten eggs, and a pint of sweet milk (fresh milk); cook in waffle-irons, heated and well-greased. Serve hot.
