CLERMONT COLLEGE'S ANNUAL WAFFLE AND MAPLE SYRUP
revised 5 April 1996, 7 April 2000, 2 April 2002 11 April 2003
Here is the invitation for
the 34th Annual Waffle amd Maple Syrup Breakfast (2009).
If you like crisp and light waffles, made with whole grains, you should like these. This recipe will feed about four persons, depending on appetite... This recipe is the basis of the waffles which we have served to U.C. Clermont College since 1975. It was in that year that we first started tapping Sugar Maple trees on campus as part of the Biology Lab activites in Winter Quarter. We served the resulting syrup over these cornmeal waffles, invented by David Fankhauser. Here is the record of attendance since 1995 , an article about the breakfast in 2001 , the 2003 Invitation with information about the 2003 sugaring season, and pictures taken at the 28th Waffle Breakfast in 2003 .
RECIPE FOR FANKHAUSER'S CORNMEAL WAFFLES
Whisk in a 2 qt bowl until blended:
Add to egg and whisk gently just to blend:
1 cup plain yogurt (or
1 cup beer, cold and effervescent
Measure into a sifter:
2/3 cup cornmeal
(freshly ground if possible)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Sift onto liquids, whisk just to mix, leaving small lumps. (You may need to add a bit more flour to adjust the thickness of the batter if it appears too runny.)
1/4 cup oil
Sprinkle shelled sunflower seeds onto a preheated hot (just starting to smoke) well-seasoned waffle iron.
Bake until browned, about 6 minutes.
Brush with melted 1:1 butter:oil, drizzle on maple syrup, try to stop after eating just one...
(For the deluxe version,
may sprinkle in cooked sausage, walnuts and/or pecans in the same
the sunflower seeds.)
