Eggless Waffles

So, my delightful husband requested/demanded waffles for breakfast this morning. However, we had no eggs, and I had to get creative. Fortunately, we typically have yogurt in the house, so I was able to tweak something to get the job done. I'll admit, they didn't taste exactly like waffles, but they still tasted good. Hubs described them as tasting like the bottom of a cupcake. Not too bad for an early morning experiment....

1 3/4 c flour (I used bread flour, so that may be why they were more like a cake)
3 T sugar
1 T baking powder
6 oz. vanilla yogurt (one of the single-serving cups)
1/4 c oil
2 T butter, melted
1 t vanilla

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Combine wet ingredients separately, beat together, and then add to dry ingredients.
Stir just until moistened. Batter will be lumpy.
Prepare according to your waffle iron's specifications until golden brown.

I wager that I used too much vanilla, but they turned out well. I thought the bread flour would help them stay fluffy, so that's why I didn't use all-purpose. In the event that I am lacking eggs in the future, I would make them again.
