Best Basic Waffle

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by CrazyBoutCooking

After making these waffles, my sister said I had to post this recipe. We have tried many waffle recipes and this is our favorite. These waffles are light and crispy. I obtained the original from the manual of my first waffle iron many years ago. When my kids were little, it wasn't unusual for me to make a batch a couple times a week.

Hi there, you are right about these waffles being crispy they were very crispy and light. I had them for breakfast with a spoonful of orange marmalade and some cream, I know it's a bit of an indulgence at eight in the morning but I had been up for hours, so it was like brunch. A great idea beating the egg whites separately and then folding in it makes a wonderful light mixture. I will be sure to make them again. Made for PAC Spring 2010
