Chocolate Malt Waffles with Caramel Sauce

I love breakfast, and coming up with new creations. This idea is the result of finding malted milk powder and cocoa powder in the pantry. The waffles are a variation of the recipe found on a box of Bisquick.

The caramel sauce is my own.

Waffles:
2 cups Bisquick
2 eggs separated
2 tablespoons melted butter or oil
3 tablespoons malted milk powder
3 tablespoons Nesquik powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup of milk
1/3 cup of heavy cream


Separate the eggs,  adding the whites and heavy cream to a mixing bowl.
Whip on high until soft peaks form.
Add remaining ingredients to a second bowl and whisk until well combined.
The mixture will be very thick.
Fold the egg white and cream into mixture.
It should thin considerably.
Heat waffle iron on medium high and lightly spray with cooking spray.
Add mix to iron following the manufacturer's​ direction.
Waffles will be crispy on the outside with a fluffy middle.


Caramel Sauce:
1 cup light brown sugar packed
1 stick butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon vanilla


Put all ingredients, except the vanilla, in a medium sauce pan. Place pan on medium low heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for about 5 minutes, then remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Let stand,​ allowing​ sauce to cool. Use caution since the sauce is very hot.

Pour the desired amount of caramel sauce on your warm waffle and garnish with a puff of whipped cream. So delicious!

Smoked Full Brisket Flat

I smoke a lot of meat. Usually I do a brisket once or twice a month. Yesterday I couldn't find a nice packer, which is the whole brisket, but  I did find a beautiful flat which was nicely trimmed. Weighing just over nine pounds the price was equal to the fourteen pound packer that was mostly one giant fat cap.
Since the flat is much leaner, I started by injecting the meat with a mixture of no salt added beef broth and about 1/2 teaspoon of the rub. This will keep the brisket nice and moist through the 10 to 12 hour cooking process.

Ingredients for the rub:
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon chili pepper


Add a circle of charcoal around the bottom of your smoker. Add several chunks of oak which has been soaked over night. Light on end of the circle and allow about one half hour for the fire to start. If done properly, you can smoke all day with charcoal ring and only have about one third to one half of t…

Cinnamon Peach Pancake Topping

Living in Florida, we have access to lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. We have several seasons of great produce. Strawberry season just ended, and peaches are just coming to the market. My wife came home with a half dozen, after a trip to the produce stand. This is a quick recipe that is great for pancakes and waffles. It also pairs well with 4Rivers bourbon maple syrup, for those lucky enough to have a smokehouse near you. (For the record, I am not connected in any way with 4Rivers.)

Ingredients:
3 ripe but firm peaches
1/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
dash ginger
dash nutmeg

Start with the peaches. The ones I have are slightly smaller than usual. Simply peel, remove the pit, and dice into small pieces. Add water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and add the spices. Simmer until the fruit softens and the water reduces to a thick syrup. Remove from heat.

I like to add a drizzle of syrup, a heaping spoonful of peaches , and a dollup of whipped cream. Enjoy!
