Waffles
Prep Time:10 Minutes
Cook Time:10 Minutes
Difficulty:Easy
Servings:8


Ingredients
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1-1/2 cup Milk
  • 2 whole Egg Yolks
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon (additional) Vanilla Extract
  • 1 stick (1/2 Cup) Salted Butter, Melted
  • 4 whole Egg Whites
Preparation Instructions
Preheat the waffle iron to the regular setting.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, 2 egg yolks, and vanilla. Pour over the dry ingredients and very gently stir until halfway combined. Pour in the melted butter and continue mixing very gently until combined.

In a separate bowl (or using a mixer), beat the egg whites with a whisk until stiff. Slowly fold them into the batter, stopping short of mixing them all the way through.

Scoop the batter into your waffle iron in batches and cook according to its directions (lean toward being a little deep golden and crisp!) Remove and serve immediately with softened butter and warm syrup.
YUM, What time will they be ready?

I bought a giant barrel smoker. Used, you know me. It is so f'ng big. It takes a lot of wood and charcoal to fire it up, so when I do, I go for it. Then, I freeze the output.

The wife and kids are elsewhere for a party. A friend of mine and I just ate about 50 kilos of smoked chicken and ribs.

As part of my low carb high fat diet to help with my blood glucose levels and to loose a bit of weight, I have been eating low carb high fat Greek yoghurt as part of my diet.

This Jalna stuff is very moorish and I go through a 2 kg bucket every fortnight with some blueberries mixed in. Yumm!

Fozen yogurt, I can do. Regular yogurt, I don't think so. Looks lovely with the blueberries mixed in!

Curried Chook wings for dinner tonight.

Spuds, onions, tinned tomatoes, frozen mixed veggies, and couple of Kgs of Chook wings cut in half. Salt to taste, and one full tin of Clive of India curry powder.

About six to swven hours in a slow cooker.

Oh now that makes me belly rumble.... mmmm

In the last couple of weeks I have been trying out Avocado's, I have this hangup about eating them since since around 1974 when I first seen them in Mt. Isa. I did not like the colour or texture of them as they reminded me of the nasty carp we found in when cutting off a pigs head sometimes.

However in the last few weeks members at the bowls club have been bringing them in by the bag load. So I grabbed a couple or three to bring home to try. I do not give a sh!t what they look like as I instantly fell in love with a new taste treat. A bit of salt and pepper and yummy. :D

Here's a pix of the ones I got on Saturday, ripened up good.

Most we get here are never very ripe and they never really ripen well. Sort of bland tasting. A friend's wife made these for me once. Funny what you can do with an avocado.

avocado brownies

For Brownies
2 large ripe avocados, mashed as well as you can (about 1 1/8 cups)
8 ounces high-quality dark chocolate, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons avocado oil
4 ounces high-quality dark chocolate, chopped

For Frosting
1 large ripe avocado
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

directions:
For Brownies:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally spray a 9-inch square pan with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, whisk mashed avocado and melt chocolate. Whisk in sugar until combined, then add in eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well. Add in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt, mixing with a large spoon until JUST combined - do not over mix. Stir in avocado oil until it's well distributed and batter is somewhat smooth. Fold in chopped chocolate, then spread batter in pan. Bake for 28-32 minutes, or until middle is set. Remove and let cool completely, then frost and top with grated chocolate if desired.

Note: I placed these in the fridge (covered throughly with plastic wrap) to store and when eaten immediately from the fridge, they can be even denser and slightly dry, so I recommend letting them come to room temp or even placing them in the microwave (we did this!).

For Frosting:
Add avocado to the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until mashed and creamy. With the mixer on low speed, add in vanilla then slowly add in powdered sugar, scraping down the sides if needed, until a smooth frosting forms. Frost brownies once cooled.

Just what I need on a T2 diabetic LCHF (low carb high fat) diet mate, I will see what I can substitute for some of the ingredients. :D

The carved avocado is amazing! Not a huge fan of avo, but perhaps I haven't had it made properly...
