Betty Crocker's Cookbook, circa 1976
I remember the 1976 parade in our small town in America! Mother and her friends all sewed long prairie dresses with bonnets and the floats were covered
with red, white and blue banners for the celebration of the Bicentennial!
ingredients for Richer Waffles, pg. 58
Richer Waffles, Betty Crocker, 1976
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
(Crico canola oil is what we prefer)
Heat waffle iron. Beat eggs; beat in remaining ingredients with ratary beater (we used the mixer) until smooth.
Pour batter from cup or pitcher onto center of hot waffle iron. Bake about 5 minutes or until steaming stops. Remove waffle carefully.
Makes about eight 7" waffles.
(If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt.)
No buttermilk on hand?
To substitute regular milk for buttermilk, separate eggs, beat egg whites until stiff; increase baking powder to 4 teaspoons; omit soda and fold egg whites into batter.
Happy Mother's Day, Grandma Pedie!
