Whole-Grain Waffles

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
1) Preheat waffle baker as manufacturer directs. In blender, combine milk, butter, eggs, and honey, and blend. Add all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt, and blend until mixture is smooth. Let batter stand for 5 minutes.

2) When waffle baker is ready, pour in batter. Cover and bake as manufacturer directs; do not lift cover during baker.
