World Cup Waffles


This morning I packed up some stuff to have some waffles with my world cup

+

I ran across the street to watch the first game, Mexico vs South Africa, with this fella

That’s Daniele.  He’s pretty.

He also made a bet that South Africa wouldn’t win a single game…reason enough for me to betray the latinos and root for South Africa.  They tied.  I can be happy with that.

So while I watched in rather agitated fashion, I enjoyed this:

Rhubarb Waffles

adapted from Eating Well’s Rhubarb Waffles

5 stalks of rhubarb (cut into 1/4 inch pieces)
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla
3 egg whites
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt

In a pot, combine rhubarb and sugar.  Cook for about 10 minutes or until rhubarb is tender.  Remove 1 cup of rhubarb and set aside.  Continue to cook the rest of the rhubarb for another 5-10 minutes, until rhubarb breaks down and thickens.

Combine remaining ingredients and reserved rhubarb to make the batter.  Cook in a heated waffle iron for about 10 minutes.   Serve with rhubarb sauce.

This made 4 fat waffles and wayyyy more sauce than necessary.

Thanks Liz for letting us borrow your waffle iron!!

Okay I’m off to burn off some of these waffle calories.  Have a great day!

    Everyone has been uber excited for the world cup over here. It’s kind of the only thing everyone talks about. I guess I will watch a couple of matches but I’m not a huge fan.
    On the other hand it’s super fun to watch my friends watch football. They’re all emotional and yell at the tv. It’s hilarious :).

    Would you like to come over here and make me some waffles please? Thankyouverymuch.

    Have a great weekend! 🙂

    Rhubarb?! I thought it was salsa and I was like mmm salsa waffles. But I’ve never tried rhubarb and if it resembles salsa it’s something I need to try. Did you watch the England/USA game? I was kinda rooting for England but I’m happy with a tie

    Hi Karla,

    I just stumbled upon your blog and I absolutely love it! The pics of those waffles are fabulous. I have been a long time food blog reader but just became active yesterday and decided to start my own blog… so if you have any tips for success I would really appreciate it!
