DIRECTIONS

  • Separate the 4 eggs, adding the yolks to the sugar and setting the whites aside for later use.
  • Add the flour and butter to the yolk and sugar mixture, first by stirring and then by working the mixture into a uniform dough with your hands.
  • Beat the egg whites until they are fluffy: when you lift the beater from the whites, soft peaks should form and then fall back, not holding much shape.
  • Crumble the dough and drop the pieces into the egg whites.
  • Stir by mashing the pieces of dough into the whites with a spoon, then stirring until a uniform consistency is achieved.
  • Heat up a waffle iron.
  • When it is hot (but not too hot), drop the batter onto the iron in the desired serving size.
  • I usually get about 12 waffles roughly 4-5 inches in diameter from this recipe.
