MS Simple Waffles - doubled and updated!

I've had this recipe for simple waffles from Martha Stewart on my blog now for nearly two years. It was one of several waffle recipes that we enjoyed, but I never really had a go-to recipe. Recently, I had a craving for breakfast for lunch and decided to give these waffles another try. I loved them! Perhaps it's because the original recipe makes such a small batch (10 thin toaster-sized waffles) or maybe because the flavor is hearty and not too sweet, but I promptly mixed up several bags of mixes using this recipe for my pantry. Though it was handy not to have to whip up a ton of waffles for a quick lunch for my older son and I, for breakfast for a family of (even though one little is just starting solids), the quantity just isn't enough to feed us. Plus, that's a lot of butter in the original recipe. Thus, here's a tasty and somewhat healthier version perfect for family weekend breakfasts.

MS Simple Waffles (doubled)
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
4 large eggs
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup apple sauce

In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients and set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk wet ingredients. Pour wet over dry ingredients and gently combine but do not overmix.

Pour into greased waffle maker and cook until golden brown.

Makes about 20 single waffles
