I hadn't made these in ages, but suddenly I had a big craving for them. So out came the waffle iron.

They went quickly...

My recipe:

Buttermilk Waffles

Serves 4 to 6
113gr melted butter
250gr all-purpose flour
60gr brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp salt
3 large eggs, separated
500ml buttermilk (or substitute with 5 tbsp fat yoghurt and add up with milk till 500ml)

1.   In a large bowl, put together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
 2.   add egg yolks, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla and mix.
 3.   In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold egg whites into batter.
 4.   Ladle about 1/3 cup batter onto the waffle grid.

Tip: if you don't eat the waffle immediately, transfer them to a baking sheet. Place in an oven set to low heat (100C°) while using remaining batter

Happy New Year

Today I heard somebody say: "road to hell is paved with good intentions". So true especially around this time of year with New Year's resolutions. So that is the reason I never have any New Year's resolution. However there is a small exception to this rule. I've found that trying to do a 365 of whatever sort, whether it be taken a picture daily or whether it is to make a daily drawing, for me it is necessary to start on January first. Not that I'll manage the 365, but I know I'll manage at least January. So I might have a few of those 365 type resolutions, but they are personal projects.

For the changing of the year, we went down South to Veere where my FIL lives. It is one of the prettiest and certainly almost the smallest town. Normally any community this size would be a village, but they earned their city rights a long time ago and then never grew. I had an early morning walk with my dog, although not as early as I had hoped, as the sun was already up. None-the-less it was nice to be out and about, especially on this holiday where normally everybody sleeps late.

Happy New Year and may 2015 be a healthy and happy one!
