Waffles

waffles up

I got a waffle iron for my birthday this year and have been putting it to good use. This recipe is delicious – albeit a little involved because it involves incorporating whipped egg whites. I like to freeze the leftovers for future breakfasts for the kiddos. All these waffles need are some fresh fruit, maple syrup and, if you’re feeling decadent, some whipped cream. In the future, I’m going to try a true Belgian waffle recipe which I believe involves yeast and hence a resting period. For now, these certainly hit the spot. Mmmmm….


Waffles

Yield: 6 Large Waffles

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 cup milk
  • 2 whole egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) salted Butter, melted
  • 4 whole egg whites

Directions:

  1. Preheat the waffle iron
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, 2 egg yolks, and vanilla
  4. Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and very gently stir until halfway combined
  5. Pour in the melted butter and continue mixing very gently until combined
  6. In a separate bowl, using a mixer, beat the egg whites with a whisk until stiff - slowly fold them into the batter, stopping short of mixing them all the way through
  7. Scoop the batter into your waffle iron in batches and cook according to its directions - definitely make them on the deep golden side so they're nice and crisp!
  8. Remove and serve immediately with fresh fruit and maple syrup
