Waffles & Cinnamon Gravy

Mark's family has another traditional meal they serve at holidays or any other time a big group of the family is together. It's waffles and cinnamon gravy and it's beyond delicious. I know I say that about practically everything I put on the blog and this one seems a bit unusual, but it truly is unique and yummy!

Light 'N Crisp Waffles

2 egg yolks
2 C milk
2 C all-purpose flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/3 C oil
2 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Preheat waffle maker. Put all ingredients except egg whites in a large mixer bowl. Beat on low until moistened. Increase to medium, mix until smooth. By hand, gently fold in beaten egg whites. Pour 1/2 C batter in center of grid. Close waffle maker, bake until golden, 3-31/2 minutes. Repeat. Serve hot with your favorite topping.

Serving: 10 6 1/2 inch waffles

Recipe Given by: Oster Wafflemaker Instruction booklet

Hint: It takes my Oster 3 1/2 minutes to cook one waffle, but my large wafflemaker takes about 5 mintues to make 4 smaller squares so the timing works according to your appliance. OIL your wafflemaker prior to putting the first of the batter on to cook.

Cinnamon Gravy

1 C milk
2 T. flour
1/3 C sugar
½ t. cinnamon

Stir flour and cold milk to a thin-med cream sauce. Start heating up and add sugar and cinnamon while cold. Can double easily.
