BackstoryMy roommate in college got me this great pancake/waffle cookbook and that's where this recipe is from. I have made them a lot lately. Don't use pretend vanilla extract, go for gold and use the real stuff, you WILL notice a BIG differance.
- 1 ½ C flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 3 eggs separted
- 1 C milk
- 5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted & cooled
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large bowl.
- Put the egg yolks, milk, cooled butter and vanilla extract into another bowl and mix well.
- Add the flour mixture to the milk mixture and beat until mixed—don’t overbeat.
- Put the egg whites into a clean bowl and beat until stiff peaks form.
- Gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter with a metal spoon. It’s important not to over mix at this stage, so if there are a few lumps of egg whites floating around, leave them—it doesn’t matter.
- Spoon the batter into the hot waffle iron, spread the mixture out to the edges, and close the lid. (Most irons take about ½ C of batter)
