The Best Waffles

     I got a new waffle maker! I'm so excited about it because the one we had was so terrible. It was pretty old and didn't cook evenly. J wasn't convinced that I needed a new one, but after the first batch he was glad we got it. I have tried several recipes, and I think I have finally found the greatest one in a Better Homes &Gardens Cookbook. This recipe creates a waffle that is practically perfect in every way. Just enough flavor, not too bready (is that a word?), light and fluffy, yet filling at the same time. Another plus of our waffle maker is that I can have my perfectly golden waffles, and J can have his barely cooked waffles. These taste great any way you like them! Don't be tempted to save time and use the whole egg at once. Your waffle will taste so much better if you use the directions as stated.

1-3/4 c flour (take out 3-1/2Tbl if using whole wheat)
1 Tbl baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
1-3/4 c milk
1/2 c canola oil (I use 3 Tbl flax seed + 7 Tbl oil)
2 egg whites
  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. 
  • In another bowl, beat egg yolk slightly. Be in milk and oil. 
  • Add egg yolks mixture to flour mixture all at once. 
  • Stir until just combined, but still slightly lumpy.
  • Beat/Whisk egg whites till stiff peaks form. I do this in the Kitchen-Aid while I'm combining all the other stuff. 
  • Gently fold beaten egg whites into batter, leaving a few fluffs of egg white. Do not over mix.
  • Pour onto waffle iron according to your manufacturers directions. For me, it's 1/2 cup and this recipe makes 9 waffles.
