A lot of times my travels will inspire me on the recipes I'll cook when I'm at home. Recently we went to Miami for a short vacation and we had a fabulous breakfast at the Delano.
And when I got home I knew that I would find a way to re-create their Malted Waffles. The great part about adding malt powder to a waffle unlike adding cocoa is that it gives a delicious flavor without being too rich like a normal chocolate waffle can be.
And hubby couldn't have been happier because not only did we have a three day weekend but that also means three big breakfasts. Now I can go back to work and relax a little...
I kid..I kid...
2 cups self-rising flour
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 large egg
1 cup ovaltine (malted version)
Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and put into your waffle iron. Cook in a greased waffle iron according to instructions.
Serve with strawberry jam on the side and imagine you are in Miami...
