We love breakfast! Especially weekend mornings when we have no plans, a nice home cooked breakfast is perfect. Waffles are definitely a favorite for us and so easy to make. The kids love them too. When looking through the Rumford Complete Cookbook this month, I wanted to try one of the waffle recipes. The pound cake waffle recipe sounded good, so I wanted to try that. I will for sure be making these again they were delicious!
The Pound Cake Waffles recipe is on page 128 of the Rumford Complete Cookbook. A photo of the recipe is below.
Here is my version of the recipe with some updates, I actually made these waffles a few times they were very well liked!
Pound Cake Waffles: A Rumford Complete Cookbook Recipe
3/4 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. Rumford Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. lemon or vanilla flavoring
In a mixing bowl combine butter and sugar together and beat to a cream. Add the well beaten egg yolks to the bowl. Then the flour, salt, ad baking powder and mix together well. Add the flavoring you like and beat thoroughly. Lightly beat the egg whites and then add by folding them in the batter. Cook the waffles in a waffle maker and serve. One batch makes 12 waffles.
I tried these waffles with vanilla flavoring and they were so good! My family really enjoyed them. The flavoring just added a little extra to them. I made them another time and had almond extract and used that, which was also very good.
We will definitely be making these again. Breakfast or dinner (we like to have breakfast for dinner often) they are delicious!
