Day 354: Brown Butter Orange Waffles

Yield: 6 waffles
Time (Start to Finish): 45 min

2 eggs
¾ cup butter
2 cups four
1 ¾ cup milk
1 Tbsp brown sugar
4 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
½ tsp vanilla
1 orange, zested
1 Tbsp orange juice

extra butter
orange juice and zest

1. In a skillet, put the butter on med heat
2. Let the butter cook until it browns. It should take about 5 min, and stir it while it is cooking. The browning makes a nice nutty taste. You can brown it as dark as you like
3. Remove the butter from the heat and set aside
4. Heat up your waffle maker
5. In a bowl, combine the eggs and milk
6. Add the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt and stir until almost combined
7. Add the vanilla, orange zest and juice and the butter and stir until it is all together
8. Pour into waffle maker to make waffles
9. If you want, you can make extra brown butter, add orange juice and zest and use to pour on top

Notes: A nice home cooked breakfast for my house!! This is a super yummy recipe, but the waffles get soft if you let them sit out too long, so make them fresh as people come in! I also used left over orange cream as something to put on top as well as the orange butter I talked about. Brown butter adds just a hint of a different rustic taste which I love. Once you try it you will love it too. Thanks for enjoying this with me girls!! You CAN make this with other citrus, but orange is by far the best…you can even add a little whiskey to the butter, hehehe
