When we registered for wedding gifts for some reason we did not register for a waffle maker. We eventually realized the silliness of that decision so last winter we finally bought one. That purchase was definitely well worth it because we love waffles!
The night before we first made waffles we watched Alton Brown's Good Eats episode about waffles. We learned some tips from that and got an excellent recipe. One time, I didn't have whole wheat flour like the recipe calls for and instead only used all purpose flour. Big mistake--the waffles were missing the crispness that we were used to. Lesson learned: use whole wheat flour!
Also, if you scroll down and look at the picture at the bottom of the post you'll see that my daughter was very anxious to get her hands on some waffles. :)

 Print Recipe
Yields: 8-9 waffles

1 T white vinegar
1 T lemon juice
~2 cups milk
1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 T sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 eggs
4 T melted butter

   1.  Put vinegar and lemon juice in a 2 cup measuring cup. Fill with milk. Let sit for 5 minutes.
   2.  While milk is resting mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
   3.  In a separate bowl, beat eggs then add melted butter. Whisk in milk; beat smooth.
   4.  Add wet ingredients to dry and fold gently with a spatula, leaving lumps. Let rest for 5 minutes.
   5.  While batter is resting, preheat waffle iron. Spray with cooking spray. Pour ~1/2 cup batter onto hot waffle iron; cook until done.
   To reheat frozen waffles: Preheat oven to 250. Put waffles on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Cook 2-3 minutes; flip and cook 2 minutes longer.
