waffles and peanut butter.

Don't you all put peanut butter on your waffles? In my family we grew up putting peanut butter and syrup all over our waffles and pancakes. I remember going on sleepovers and having pancakes or waffles and asking if they had some peanut butter. I have received some very strange looks when I ask for the peanut butter, but a pancake or waffle just isn't the same without it for me now. My family also has always made homemade syrup, so it was always hard for me to have "cold" syrup straight from the bottle when I would eat breakfast at other people's houses. I mean after I asked for the accommodation of the peanut butter I always felt awkward asking if I could heat up the syrup first too haha. Since I had a hard week I decided Saturday morning to treat myself to some waffles :) My parents gave us a really cool waffle maker for Christmas, like the kind you would use at a hotel, and it made the best waffles! So I thought I would share the family recipe here for you all. Enjoy :)

Leavitt's Waffles
3 cups flour
5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 TBSP sugar
4 large eggs
2 1/4 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup oil

Don't beat the mixture too much. It will be thick. Pour 1 cup batter per batch. This recipe is easily doubled, tripled etc. My family usually makes tons of this and we have ourselves a waffle feast!

  3. Peanut butter on waffles? I think that sounds amazing! How does one make their own syrup, though? Growing up we ALWAYS had Vermont maple syrup,and we usually heated it up beforehand- it really is better that way!

  9. You just cannot understand the greatness of waffles until you have made them yourself.
    Gorgeously yummy!

  10. It looks yummy! I have some serious food-habits as well. I can only eat one kind of butter and one kind of cheese. Haha. I guess I am just picky - but that's what I've been eating my whole life!

    I have never tried Peanut Butter on waffles. It looks delicious.

  15. Ooh that sounds delicious!
    My family always made pancakes from scratch so I didn't even know pancake mix existed until like, 8th grade at my friend's house. I thought it was soooo weird!
    I'm excited to make these waffles sometime soon! With peanut butter, of course.

  47. My mom would always buy the natural syrup and heat it up for us, so when i would go to my friends houses when i was little and they served bottled cold syrup, i would cringe! lol

  48. This has nothing to do with peanut butter on waffles. Cuz secretly I don't love it. It's just okay.

  53. LOVE this post. We are a HUGE pb+waffles family. After church my little brother would make waffles every sunday. Chocolate chips would usually show their faces too...it turned out to be more of a dessert lunch than a lunch-lunch. Perfect preface to a Sunday afternoon nap, though!
