Orange Waffles

Make 6 waffles. Each is 112 calories

3/4 cup all purpose flour     

1 cup low-fat milk

1 medium egg   

1 tablespoon oil  

1 tablespoon sugar    

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons orange juice

Pinch of salt


To grease the waffle maker:

2 teaspoons cooking oil to grease the waffle maker


– In a bowl, add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk well and keep aside.

– Beat the egg with oil, vanilla, orange juice, milk, and sugar.

– Add the flour to the previous mixture and stir gently. Over mixing this batter will make the waffles tough. Do not mind the lumps if there were any.

– Preheat waffle maker. Use a cooking spray, pastry brush or a paper towel to oil both the top and bottom plates of the waffle maker. Do so before making each waffle, to prevent it from sticking.

– Depending on your waffle machine pour enough batter, when done serve hot.
