Foodie Friday: Oatmeal Waffles

A friend recently mentioned the oatmeal waffles that she makes for her family. Here is what she had to say about them, "The following recipe won a Better Homes & Gardens Recipe Contest in 1988.  My family (and anyone else I have made them for) love them!!" They sounded delicious, so I made sure to get the recipe from her. (Thanks, Lisa!!) These are the waffles Peachy and I shared for our Wednesday morning breakfast. We topped them with fresh whipped cream, apple pie in a jar, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. And they were as good as they sounded and just as good when I re-heated them Thursday for breakfast.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 T. brown sugar

1. In a medium bowl stir together flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.  Make a well in the center of flour mixture; set aside.
2. In another medium bowl beat eggs slightly.  Stir in milk, butter or margarine, and brown sugar.  Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir until combined.
3. Pour about 1 1/4 cups batter onto grids of a preheated, lightly greased waffle baker.  Close lid quickly; do not open during baking.  Bake according to manufacturer's directions.  When done, use a fork to lift waffle off grid.  Repeat with remaining batter.  If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with fruit and yogurt.
Makes about twelve 4-inch waffles.
