Too much leftover milk? try this tasty recipe

I was in a hurry the other day, and had some leftover milk that I wasn’t sure what to do with. I tried vanilla ice cream once, but it didn’t taste as good as regular ice cream. So then I thought about making waffles! But how could I make these delicious looking waffles without any eggs? Well luckily for me there were two options: use an egg replacer OR use leftover milk! So which method did you choose?


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3 eggs, separated (save yolks for another use)

1/2 cup leftover milk

You can use any kind of milk you like. If you don’t have any leftover milk, just use regular whole or 2% plain yogurt and add sugar to taste.

  • To prepare the pudding: In a large bowl, combine the cornstarch and sugar with half of the milk until smooth; set aside.* In another large bowl combine all ingredients except food coloring; stir well until combined (it will be thick). Add 1/2 cup more liquid if needed until desired consistency is reached.* Stir in food coloring (optional) and transfer mixture into individual bowls or molds depending on how many people are going to eat them

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

Coconut oil is a healthy fat that has been used for centuries to improve the health of the skin and hair. It also has a high smoke point, which means it can be used for cooking at high temperatures without burning.

Coconut oil is found in many products such as ChapStick, lotions and creams (as well as other foods), so you may already have some on hand if you’re consistently making your own beauty products at home.

2 eggs

Add 2 eggs to the mix.

Beat them before adding them, then add one at a time. If you add the eggs too fast, you will end up with scrambled eggs instead of a nice fluffy omelet!

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Vanilla extract is made from vanilla beans, which are dried and then cured in alcohol. The resulting mixture of water, alcohol, and vanilla beans is what you’ll find in your bottle of vanilla extract. You can use it to flavor foods like ice cream or custard by adding a few drops to the mix when cooking them (it will add just the right amount of flavor), but it also works well on its own as dessert topping!

Vanilla extract can be used anywhere where you would normally use baking soda—like baking cookies or cakes—but because it doesn’t contain any acidic ingredients such as lemon juice or vinegar like those found in other recipes (like sour cream), don’t worry about overdoing things!

2 tablespoons brown sugar, plus additional for topping

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, plus additional for topping
  • 3 cups milk (I used 2% milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

2 tablespoons maple syrup, plus additional for topping

Maple syrup is a natural sweetener made from the sap of maple trees. It’s a key ingredient in this recipe, but you can substitute brown sugar if you prefer.

Maple syrup can also be used to make ice cream or other treats, including pancakes and waffles!

1 cup flour

1 cup flour

  • All-purpose flour: We used this to make the biscuits. It’s just what it sounds like, an all-purpose flour that works for most baked goods. If you want to make your own, here are a couple of recipes from our archives: [Flour] and [Baking Powder].
  • Whole wheat flour: Whole wheat is great if you’re gluten-free or want something with more flavor than traditional white whole wheat. You can use it in lieu of regular whole wheat flours when baking cookies or other treats like scones or muffins; however, try not to substitute too much at once because it will alter their texture (and therefore taste).
  • Oat flour: Oat bran contains oat protein which makes them very high in fiber—that’s why they’re often referred to as “semi-whole” grains! They also contain beta glucan which helps lower cholesterol levels while maintaining healthy blood sugar levels after eating foods containing oats such as flapjacks made out of these tasty little seedlets!

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Baking powder is a leavening agent used to make baked goods rise. It’s made from an acid salt, such as sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), and an alkali salt, such as potassium carbonate or sodium carbonate. The two chemicals react to produce carbon dioxide gas when mixed with liquid ingredients such as milk or eggs.

Baking powder can be used in any recipe that calls for yeast by itself; however, it’s not intended for use in place of active dry yeast because it doesn’t provide the same leavening effect.

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

Baking soda is a leavening agent, which means it helps the batter to rise. It also makes waffles crispy and gives them their crunchy crust. Baking powder has baking soda as one of its main ingredients, so you can use this same recipe to make your own homemade baking powder at home!

Use this recipe as a base for any type of batter or dough; if you want more of an authentic taste, try using buttermilk instead of milk (or vice versa). You’ll find that this tastes great even when cold out-of-the-oven too!
