My Favorite Waffles

Make these waffles in any type of waffle maker. 
Thick Belgian-style or thinner shaped waffles, like
my heart shaped waffle maker...they are all good. 
Serve with fresh strawberries and powdered sugar
 or warmed maple syrup....or both.
 Mix up the batter and let rest. 
 Spray and preheat a waffle iron.
Pour 1/3 C batter into the center. 
Close and bake until golden.
Keep waffles warm in the oven, along with your 
plates while you bake the rest.
One of the things I love about waffles is that 
unlike pancakes they freeze beautifully.
I always make the full recipe.
Then I can just pop them in the toaster oven to
reheat and enjoy again.

My Favorite Waffles
2 C flour
2 T sugar
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
Whisk together in a large bowl. 
~~~~~~~~~~
2 egg yolks
1-3/4 C milk
6 T butter, melted
Whisk together in another bowl, 
then combine with the flour mixture.
~~~~~~~~~
2 beaten egg whites
Fold into the combined batter. 
Let stand 20-30 minutes.

Pour 1/3 C batter in the center of sprayed and 
preheated waffle iron. Close lid and bake until
 golden, about 2-3 minutes.
Remove and keep warm on a plate in the oven, 
along with your plates while you make the
 rest. Freeze any leftover waffles and use 
a toaster oven to reheat again.
(tip: If you are in a hurry and do not want
to separate the eggs, you can just beat 
the whole eggs until frothy and proceed) 
Makes 10 waffles.

  2. I have a heart-shaped waffle maker, too!! Your recipe sounds perfect & I like that you can choose to not whip the egg yolks & whites separately.

  3. I have the same waffle maker - the kids just love to cut them into heart shapes. I haven't made waffles is such a long time.... I'll have to do something about that soon. Have a great weekend.

  5. What I really like about those waffles is that you don’t have to exert too much effort to make them look presentable. Their shape and texture already did it for you! Anyway, thanks for sharing your recipe. It seems very easy to follow and foolproof. All the best!
