Various Waffle Recipes from jp

Here are the waffle recipes in my copy. They're on p.67 of the James Beard Cookbook, 1970 edition  (EP Dutton, NY).  I hope that one of these is the missing recipe you're looking for.

Sweet Milk Waffles
This is the old, traditional waffle recipe, and in my opinion it makes the tastiest waffles.

2 eggs
1-1/2 cups of milk
2 cups of sifted flour
3/4 tsp of salt
2-1/2 tsp of double-acting baking powder
1/4 cup of melted butter

Sift flour and measure 2 cups.  Add the baking powder and salt, and sift again.  Beat the eggs until light and lemon colored, then beat in the milk.  Graduallly add the dry ingredients and blend until smooth. Finally, add the melted butter and mix it in thoroughly.  Bake in a hot waffle iron until the steaming ceases.

Sweet Waffles:  Add 1/3 cup of sugar and a dash of vanilla to the batter.
Bacon Waffles:  Add 2/3 cup of crumbled crisp bacon to the batter.

Sour Cream Waffles
This batter will seem rather stiff, but don't be alarmed.  It makes waffles that are light, crisp and very delicious.

2 eggs
1 cup of sour cream
1-1/2 cups of flour
2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of soda
3/4 tsp of salt
6 tbsp of melted butter

Beat the eggs until light and lemon colored.  Gradually beat in the sour cream.  Sift the dry ingredients together and stir them into the egg-cream mixture.  Finally add the melted butter and blend thoroughly.

Bake in a hot waffle iron until the steaming ceases.
Note:  This batter also makes fine pancakes.
