How many people out there love waffles? I know I do, but just like pancakes, I really don't like making them. They take forever to do one at a time- so I'm not going to put in all that effort unless I know that they are going to get eaten. This recipe is one that my whole family will eat, it's the only food my son will ask for seconds of. This recipe separates the egg whites from the yolks and has you whip the egg whites before folding them in. That ensures that they are light and airy. Try this recipe out this weekend- it is sure to have your day starting with a smile. Thanks for following along!~LC
As always, gather up your ingredients. I recommend using whole milk in this recipe, with certain things it really does make a difference- and waffles are one of those things. The brown sugar also helps make the outside crisp, while the inside soft. As the waffle cooks, the sugars on the outside caramelize. It helps give it a great texture.
Melt butter- this way it can begin to cool down slightly while you do all the other steps. Whisk together dry ingredients, in a separate large glass measuring cup mix together the wet ingredients. Whisk in the butter quickly before adding to the dry ingredients.
Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. If there are some lumps it is ok. Whisk egg whites until foamy and light, gently fold into waffle batter.
Spray waffle iron with baking spray once hot. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into waffle iron, close and let cook. You may need to play around with your specific brand on exactly how much batter to add. Once done, top with butter, pure maple syrup, and enjoy!
2 cups flour
1 ½ Tablespoons baking powder
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs, separated
2 cups whole milk
½ cup butter
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1. Melt butter and place to the side. Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl, make a well in the center. Whisk milk, vanilla and egg yolks. Quickly whisk in melted butter. Pour into the well of the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
2. Using a wire whisk, beat egg whites until light and fluffy. Fold into waffle batter gently.
3. Preheat waffle iron and spray with baking spray. Place 1/3 cup of batter on waffle iron and cook until light brown. Repeat until all batter is used. Top with butter and warm maple syrup. Enjoy!
Note: Each waffle iron is different so you may need to find the right amount of batter for your model.
