for your inspiration. late night garlic ginger waffles with three yolks my best guess recipe.

It is 3:am. I am so hungry. At the time, I have very few things where I am staying. I heat the waffle iron. Yes, of all things, I have a waffle iron. I take what is left of the buckwheat flour (and buckwheat flour?) and mix it with AP flour and some baking soda and a dash of baking powder. I add some sea salt. I am guessing a tablespoon. I grate some ginger and fine chop some garlic. Seems like a good idea? There is only olive oil and two eggs. Upon cracking the eggs, one reveals an extra yolk. I then start eyeballing the additional flour that I add for the extra wet ingredient. I keep stirring for the correct texture. Adding more flour a bit at the time. A little more, and then, a little more. Waffle iron light indicates ready. I let the batter sit anyway. It is best to let it rest a bit.

I’d love to give you the exact recipe. This is a blog. I know you expect a recipe. Sadly, I don’t know what it is. The same thing happened with this one desert for breakfast I made. It had coconut flour, black onyx cocoa, raspberries with layers and maybe almond unbalanced almond meal. A most unexpected delicious beauty that turned out to be. I was just pouring and creating to make my breakfast. It was so damn good. It photographed quite nice too once I got it out of the ramekin. See photo below. And for these waffles, similar thing happened with the recipe. Really, I just mixed flours and substituted butter with olive oil and no milk? The My Best Guess Garlic Ginger Waffles recipe is also below.

My Best Guess Buckwheat Garlic Ginger Waffle Recipe


1 1/2 Cup of All Purpose Flour

3/4 Cups Buckwheat Flour

2 Eggs (three yolks) One of my eggs had two yolks? That is the second time this has happened to me making waffles. The other time was red velvet waffles.

1 Dash of Baking Powder

1 Dash of Baking Soda

1 Tablespoon of Salt

Dash of Sugar

Dash of Ceylon Cinnamon

Generous Pour 6-19 Tablespoons of Olive Oil (I use 365 Mediterranean Blend)

1 Knob of Grated Ginger

2 Cloves of White Garlic

Plug in and turn on the waffle iron to the desire setting. I like the middle setting. Soft but more golden on top. I have a Cuisinart waffle iron. I love it. I got it from Sur la Table in Santa Monica, CA years ago. You can buy one on Amazon. I have a Cuisinart section. Back to the almost recipe.

Mix the olive oil and the the eggs together until smooth. Set aside. Put all the dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk together. Now, I added the dry into the wet mixture. I think you are supposed to do it the other way around. Am I making a cake? Luckily not gingerbread cookies. Mix until smooth.

Taking pictures optional. These aren’t missing anything. I eat them just as they are this time. IF you needed to add-ons perhaps some butter, vanilla bourbon maple syrup and fried chicken would do nicely? Maybe champagne too, if that is your thing.

Should you follow this recipe, let me know how it turns out. Thank you.

Until Next Time…

The dessert I mention above. I will remember the recipe. I must.
