the “greatest waffle recipe ever?”

i didn’t grow up in a house where we made a lot of waffles. we were are crepe people. but i decided today to make waffles for breakfast. so in true 21st century fashion i googled a recipe and happened to find the so-called “greatest waffle recipe ever.” the ingredient list was short, just the way i like it:

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 egg whites
step 1
in a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. make a well in the center.
step 2
in another bowl beat egg yolks slightly. stir in milk and oil.
step 3
add egg yolk mixture all at once to the dry mixture. stir just till moistened (should be lumpy).
step 4
in a small bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight up).
[note: if you have no arm strength, USE A MIXER.]
step 5
gently fold egg whites into flour and egg yolk mixture, leaving a few fluffs of egg white, Do not overmix.
step 6
spoon waffle batter into your waffle iron, making sure not to overfill it.
[i was feeling a bit nostalgic so i used my mickey mouse waffle iron.]
step 7
enjoy!

final verdict: the waffles were delicious. crisp on the outside, moist and tender on the inside. best waffles ever? i still don’t know about all that. but boy were they yummy! try it and let me know what you think.
bon appetit! xoxo, muki
