Egg Nog Waffles

     Sorry it's been so long! We have finished all our holiday travel, and we are ready to hibernate until Spring! Hopefully, I'll be more regular on posting from now on. I've been trying to keep up on all your posts, but I know I have missed so many good recipes!
     Because Christmas is coming up, we always have egg nog in the house. It's just not Christmas without it! For this mornings waffles, I thought I'd see what egg nog did to waffle batter. Besides adding a delicious, Christmasy (I'm sure that is a word) taste, it made the waffles super fluffy.

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
2 c egg nog
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. Add in egg nog 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.
