I love this recipe because the waffles are so light! My mom has used this recipe for years. She also uses the White Lily biscuit recipe. It's very hard to find White Lily. Sometimes we have it shipped to us. We have found it in TN. and if you are in northeast US, you can find it at most Meijer stores. If you find it, please let me know. If you like this recipe, check out the biscuit recipe I will post under "White Lily Biscuits". size: 7 1/2 in.

White Lily flower can be simulated by using a 1/2 cake flour and 1/2 all purpose flour mixture
These were the lightest waffles we've ever made. I actually did use White Lilly (it's pretty common in NC). I made up the batter & then let the waffle iron heat, which gave the batter enough time to rise a bit. I also added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, just before the egg whites, for a little extra flavor.
