CLASSIC BELGIAN WAFFLES BY EMERIL LAGASSE

 

  • Cooking Time: 3 minutes
  • Servings: 6-8
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cake flour (I used regular flour)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups milk
  • non-stick cooking spray

Directions

  • Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • In 1 medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a second bowl use the wooden spoon to beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow. Add the vanilla extract, melted butter, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine.
  • Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until 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 the egg whites into the waffle batter. Do not overmix!
  • Coat the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour enough batter in iron to just cover waffle grid.
  • Close and cook as per manufacturer's instructions until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
