    Boxerwing's Note:

    Rich and delicious, easy and satisfying; my favourite waffle recipe. No sugar, but you don't really miss it, especially when drizzled with syrup! And yes, one *tablespoon* of baking powder is correct! Cook time is per waffle in my iron. From the cookbook "Waffles, Flapjacks, Pancakes, Blintzes, Crepes, Frybread from Scandinavia and Around the World" compiled by Dianna Stevens.

      This is a good basic waffle recipe, and you don't need any sugar to make it flavorful. I do think that beating the egg whites and then folding them into the batter would make these waffles lighter.

      I ended up making 3 batches of these. My kids just kept eating them. I did thin the batter down with a little bit more buttermilk so the batter would fill the waffle iron. I also make extra for the freezer. This will more than likely be our first choice for waffles.
