Quick Vanilla Waffles
Why I Love This Recipe
My 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.
Ingredients You'll Need
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)
