My boys love waffles! With powder sugar, syrup or just plain! I use to buy the boxed stuff back in the day until I read all the nasty ingredients in it so I came up across this recipe a few years back and it’s our favorite for sure!
2 cups of flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 large eggs, separated
2 tbs of sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbs unsalted butter, melted
2 cups of milk
butter to butter up the waffle maker
Preheat the waffle iron to hot.
In 1 medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a 2nd bowl use a wooden spoon to beat together the yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned pale yellow. add the vanilla extract, butter and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine.
Combine the egg mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until it’s blended.
Do NOT over mix.
In third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Using the rubber spatula, gently fold in egg whites into the waffle batter. Do NOT over mix!
Coat the waffle iron with a little bit of butter and pour just enough batter into the iron to cover the waffle grid. Close and cook as per manufactures instructions (mine beeps when it’s done) until golden brown. Serve immediately!
Serve with powder sugar, or any topping of your choice
