Amish friendship bread...waffles?!

It's been ten days since my first Amish friendship bread baking extravaganza, and it's time for yet another baking day!

I was itchin' to try out some untraditional, non-loaf recipes using the starter, so this morning I woke up and whipped up a batch of waffles.

Decadently fluffy, not-too-sweet, tangy Belgian-style waffles.

So take that dusty waffle maker out of the cupboard and stuff your face with these piping hot lovelies.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's starter spin-off - another breakfast favorite.

Trust me, it's worth it.

Amish Friendship Waffles - makes approximately a dozen Belgian-style waffles (I squeezed out 13, and if you're using a standard waffle maker you should get more waffles)

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg
2 cups Amish Friendship Batter (♥ Note: As with the traditional friendship bread, the batter you use for baking on the 10th day is the starter that you add the 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of milk to before dividing into four batches of batter. Two batches (two cups) of this batter is what you use for this recipe.)

Preheat a standard or Belgian-style waffle maker (to medium-high heat if yours has different settings like mine) and coat with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and powder, and salt. In a large non-metallic bowl, combine the Amish batter, oil, milk, and the egg and whisk until smooth. Slowly whisk the flour mixture into the batter and let sit 5 minutes. The batter will rise and look bubbly.
Measure 1/2-3/4 cup of batter in a glass liquid measuring cup (For my deep Belgian waffle maker, I used close to 3/4 of a cup of batter for each batch, but a standard waffle might use less. Play with the amount until you reach your desired thickness.) and pour into waffle maker and cook according to your model's specifications, or until the waffle is golden brown. Use a fork or small kitchen tongs to remove the super-tender waffles. Serve warm with maple syrup, berries, or jam.

Want to make pancakes instead? Decrease the oil from 1/4 cup to 2 tablespoons and cook on a griddle until golden brown.
These waffles are delicious plain, but for an added touch of flavor, add 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract, lemon zest, cinnamon, or pumpkin pie spice to the batter.
