I purchased a waffle maker at a thrift shop for a dollar. My daughter wanted me to make waffles so I told her to find me a recipe in one of my many cookbooks. She found this one in American Cooking. These are very light and wonderful tasting and can easily be frozen.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat egg yolks and add one cup of the buttermilk.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together and add to the egg mixture.
  3. Add the other cup of buttermilk and the melted butter.
  4. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter.
  5. Bake on you waffle iron until golden brown.

unbelievable. We loved it - definately a default recipe. I did add 2 T of sugar and 1T of vanilla. The 2nd time I made it I substituted 1/4c of wheat flour. It was still great!

August 04, 2013<br/>Hubby asked for waffles this morning he never does, with that in mind I decided to look for a better waffle recipe than I normally use when I ran across this one i quickly decided to try it knowing a little about cooking I knew the batter would be very light and airy, and most likely yield a pretty decent waffle, it was much better than decent and best of all hubby liked them.<br/>In my house that makes this a definite keeper. Thanks so much for posting.
