- Waffle Iron
- 2 cups flour
- 4 teaspoons baking pow der
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 eggs separated
- ½ cup oil
- 2 cups milk
Optional: 1 cup blueberries or ½ – 1 cup chocolate chips or ½ cup nuts or 1 cup chopped apple
If you are entertaining a large breakfast crew, first warm your oven and a cookie sheet. This will keep the prepared waffles warm before serving.
Warm the waffle iron and if ungreased, grease with cooking spray or butter. Sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Separate the eggs into two separate bowls. Beat the eggs whites until stiff peaks, at which point the peaks hold their shape and appear ‘stiff.’ To the egg yolks, add the milk and oil and whisk just until yolks are broken and combined. Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Mix well. Once mixed, fold in the beaten egg whites in portions. A spatula works best for folding in the egg whites. At this point add any optional addition and stir just until even distributed in mixture.
Cook according to waffle iron directions. Ladle or pour onto hot waffle iron until surface is covered. Close lid and leave covered usually for 3 to 4 minutes. Once satisfied with appearance remove with tongs and place on warmed baking sheet until ready to serve. The recipe makes roughly 16 waffles. Top with everything and anything!
