Classic Fluffy Waffles

Here's a very quick and easy waffle recipe that are perfect for Saturday morning. Pair with strawberry syrup or your favorite syrup. We got the recipe from "The New Book of Waffles and Pizzelles" by Donna Rathmell German

Here's the recipe:

2 eggs, at room temp and separated
2 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 TBS sugar
1 1/2 C milk
1/2 C butter melted and cooled

Start by sifting together all of the dry ingredients.

Whisk together the egg yolks, butter and milk. Add the mixture to the dry ingredients, but mix it by hand just until they are blended. Don't over-blend!

In a separate bowl, use a mixer to beat the egg whites until the form stiff peaks. Then gently fold them into the batter just until they are all mixed in. Again, the key with these is to not over mix it.

Now all you have to do is pour them into a hot waffle iron. I usually spray a little bit of PAM on it first just so they are easy to take out. This recipe makes 2 large waffles, if that is more waffle than you want, you can always half the recipe.

We love using this recipe because we can always double or triple it when we have company or just make "as is" when it's just the two of us. These waffles are easy and delicious! They are best served hot out of the waffle iron, with butter and syrup. Enjoy!
