From "The Best of Pancake & Waffle Recipes" by Beatrice Ojakangas, a popular waffle recipe at my house.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly spray waffle iron, and preheat.
  2. Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. Beat egg whites until stiff (I usually use a whisk until they're fluffy).
  4. In another medium bowl, beat yolks; add milk and oil and gently stir to combine.
  5. Add yolk mixture to dry ingredients, blending well.
  6. Fold in the egg whites.
  7. Bake 1/3 - 1/2 cup batter for each waffle, depending on the size of the waffle iron.
  8. Serve hot (wonderful with strawberries and pure maple syrup).

These are wonderful! They really are light and fairly crispy, which is what we were looking for. I did add some vanillas, cinnamon, and extra sugar and we were really happy with the flavor. Thanks so much for an easy and tasty waffle recipe. :)

I just got a new waffle iron and have been testing recipes out from recipezaar, this is the one we like best so far. The are crispy and light and a cinch to whip together. I did not beat the whites separately but just whirled to eggs around in my blender till they were fluffy. I added a bit more sugar about 2T and about 2t. of vanilla to the batter. Thanks for the great recipe.
