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.
- 3 eggs, separated
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- Beat egg yolks and add one cup of the buttermilk.
- Mix dry ingredients together and add to the egg mixture.
- Add the other cup of buttermilk and the melted butter.
- Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter.
- 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.
Awesome! After reading the reviews I made this recipe and added 2 T of sugar and 1T of vanilla. Everyone loved them! I will be keeping this recipe.
