Waffles in Bulk

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

There are times that you are so sick of being behind that you force yourself to get ahead. In October, I came down with a nasty virus for a couple of weeks that turned into seven weeks. Followed by the flu. It's been rough to say the least.  My family barely had food on the table as I was trying to piecemeal life all together. I decided (on one of my good sick days) to make a ton of waffles to put in the freezer so I wouldn't  have to face another morning of no food for my hungry teen sons.

This recipe {which I doubled} made over 60 waffles in my Cuisinart 6-Slice Waffle Iron! We were set for life! Don't I wish!

These freeze well. In the morning we just pop them into the toaster to heat them up.

Waffles for the Freezer

6 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
5 cups milk
1 cup  oil
6 large eggs

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Let the batter rest for five minutes. Cook the waffles (NOTE: Mine took 5 minutes each, but each machine is different.)  Let cool completely and bag in gallon-size Ziploc bags. Freeze.  On the morning of serving all you need is to toast them until heated through.

NOTE: Double the recipe! While this will take longer to get through all the batter it is so worth it to have all those beautiful, golden waffles in the freezer!
