In the last post, we finished up the Breakfast section of Wookie Cookies, and Other Galactic Recipes, so this time I bring you my first original: Ackbar Waffles! This adorable Admiral-Ackbar-inspired treat could lead the rebellion to victory any day.
For the waffles themselves, I used this recipe.
Gather your ingredients.
(Pray your computer is not suddenly blue-screening in the background…)
Step one: Mix dry ingredients.
Then form a well in the center.
Step two: Mix wet ingredients (minus egg whites).
I added a little vanilla extract (it could also be exciting to add a little cinnamon).
Step three: Combine wet and dry ingredients (minus egg whites).
Just until moistened, it should still be lumpy.
Step four: Beat egg whites until stiff.
Getting stiff peaks in egg whites is way too complicated. I was beating those things forever. Go here for tips.
Step five: Fold egg whites into the batter.
Just barely stir them in.
Step six: Cook!
When pouring the batter, avoid going all the way to the corners to give it a more head-shaped/oval look.
Step seven: Form a face on your waffle using:
kiwi slices for the eyes,
blueberries for the nose,
and chocolate sauce for his mustache-shaped mouth.
Aahhh! A trap!
Don’t mess with the Admiral.

On a scale of The Emperor to Yoda, I’d give these an Uncle Owen (6.5/10). They were tasty, but those egg whites always wanted me to stay on for one more season…
I had forgotten how delicious kiwis are, and it was fun using chocolate sauce instead of syrup. Ok, let’s be honest, I ate them with chocolate sauce AND syrup.
