Oh Boy! Waffles!

I’m not quite sure why Better Homes & Gardens refers to these as “Oh Boy” waffles, but here’s a nice, simple recipe for some waffles that I jazzed up just a little bit with some spices I refer to as the “holy trinity” of comfort baking: cinnamon, all-spice, and nutmeg.  I also threw some Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips in there just to make them nice and unhealthy.

And yes, I said, Better Homes & Gardens.  I am just traditional enough to firmly believe a cookbook collection isn’t complete with the red and white plaid of the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. Our version is doubly hilarious because it’s a reprint of the original, so it includes incredibly out of date hosting rules and table settings.

But the recipes still work, in all their shortening filled glory.

“Oh Boy” Waffles


  • 2 1/2 cups sifted enriched flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp all-spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup melted shortening, butter, or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup bitter-sweet chocolate chips

Sift dry ingredients.  Combine eggs, milk and shortening.  Combine liquid and dry ingredients just before baking.  Beat until smooth.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Bake in a hot waffle iron.  Makes between 16 & 18 waffles.

And also, I would be remiss to not include MST3K’s waffles tribute.
