Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter W

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Simple Sensations: Wonderful Waffles! This is perfect for that weekend brunch when it’s fun to plan things a little different. Add fruit and nuts, sausage or bacon, but top it off with real maple syrup. Then serve with mimosas on the side and you’ll be smiling all day long!

2 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 1/2 cups milk

1 cup butter, melted 

2 eggs, separated 

1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat waffle iron. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. In a second bowl, lightly beat egg yolks. Add milk, butter, and vanilla. Mix well. Stir into dry ingredients until moistened. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into batter. Spray the waffle iron with nonstick spray. Pour enough batter to just cover the waffle grid. Bake waffles until crisp on the outside, yet light and fluffy on the inside, about 2 to 3 minutes. They will appear golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and warm syrup. Serve immediately.

  1. Gail, my oldest daughter got married yesterday, it rained, it was wonderful and I am sitting around eating leftovers and now, thinking about making crepes or pancakes. I don’t have a waffle iron since each time I buy one, one of my three kids has one break down. Thanks for the recipe! xo
