I'm betting you have most of the ingredients for this week's recipes right in your pantry or fridge this week, because we've got a lot to use up and I'm hoping you do too!
The waffle recipe comes from my mother-in-law's 1968 BH&G cookbook, and I always feel like the perfect housewife when I cook from it. (I can almost see June Cleaver and Donna Reed in my kitchen when I use it – ohhhh to be a cute housewife like those ladies!) They were called Oh Boy Waffles in the cookbook, and the recipe hangs in my spice cabinet so I can easily access it every Saturday morning!
The berry topping was a perfect way to use up some frozen Cascadian Farms fruit (if you still have some from the sale a few months ago), or you can pick up some fresh fruit on sale just about everywhere this week! Here's what you'll need . . .
For the Waffles:
2 1/4 cup flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
$0.30/1 Argo Product 12 oz+ 10/4/2009 SS Insert (exp 12/27/2010)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
$0.40/2 C&H Sugar, 2 lb
2 beaten eggs
2 1/4 cups milk
We used some of our FREE Smart Balance from a few weeks ago and it worked great!
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Sift together dry ingredients (I just beat for a few seconds with a wire whisk to sift). In seperate bowl mix together eggs, milk and vegetable oil. Add to dry ingredients and stir just until well moistened (not too long). Bake in preheated waffle iron.
While your waffles are baking, make this on stovetop . . .
3/4 cup sugar
$0.40/2 C&H Sugar, 2 lb
1 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/3 cup water
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (could substitute with blackberries)
On sale $1 at Kroger or stockpiled frozen berries – we used Cascadian Farms frozen blackberry/strawberry/blueberry mix and it worked great but I left out the strawberries (I'm not a big strawberry fan – I know, CRAZY!) Be sure to take your $1/1 Cascadian Farms coupon if you want to grab frozen berries!
Mix together sugar and cornstarch in saucepan. GRADUALLY add water (I missed that one but it still worked 🙂 ), then add berries. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until berry mixture comes to a boil, then let boil one minute stirring occasionally. Serve warm over waffles, pancakes, or french toast – YUMMMMMM!
Thanks so much s to I Heart Publix and Two Thrifty Sisters for the coupon matchups. And head on over to $5 Dinner Mom for even more great bargain meal deals!
