This is one of the easiest waffle recipes I've ever found. Most recipes call for an overnight refrigeration, but really who has time for that? I don't think about breakfast until I wake up and certainly have little to no self-control if I were to make batter the night before. ;) This recipe is quick, easy, and uses ingredients everyone should have in their kitchen, if say, one would be stuck inside under emergency precautions due to a blizzard. It's definitely sure to warm up your bellies on a cold, wintry morning.

Adapted from: Joy of Baking
Yields: 6-7 waffles

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp granulated white sugar
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Preheat waffle maker. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a separate bowl mix the egg, milk, vanilla, and butter. Add egg mixture to dry mixture and mix just until uniform throughout.

Spray waffle iron with cooking spray if needed. Pour enough batter into iron to cover 1-2 mm above iron and level out with fork. Close the lid and cook according to waffle iron specifications. I cooked until the light on my machine indicated they were done cooking, about 3-4 minutes.
