Ingredients

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornmeal (optional)
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 egg , separated
3/4 scant cup milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter , melted


Heat waffle iron. Whisk dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Whisk yolk with milk and butter.


Beat egg white until it just holds a 2-inch peak.


Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients in a thin steady stream while gently mixing with a rubber spatula; be careful not to add liquid faster than you can incorporate it. Toward end of mixing, use a folding motion to incorporate ingredients; gently fold egg white into batter.


Spread appropriate amount of batter onto waffle iron. Following manufacturer’s instructions, cook waffle until golden brown, 2 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately. (You can keep waffles warm on a wire rack in a 200-degree oven for up to 5 minutes.)


YIELD: 3 or 4 waffles

Notes

I've been experimenting with various waffle recipes. This Cook's Illustrated recipe turned out great. I omitted the cornmeal.

---- COOK'S ILLUSTRATED description:

If you’re out of buttermilk, try this sweet-milk variation. By making your own baking powder using baking soda and cream of tartar and by cutting back on the quantity of milk, you can make a thick, quite respectable batter. The result is a waffle with a crisp crust and moist interior.

I'm always wishing I could make waffles with out buttermilk, and now I can. They sound good!
