Crisp and Fluffy Waffles

Submitted by: LETHALBLONDE

Introduction

Some people think the only difference between a pancake recipe and a waffle recipe is more liquid in the waffle batter (as Bisquick might have you believe) but that is SO not true! If you want airy, delicious, restaurant quality waffles, it takes a bit more effort, but it is very much worth it!

Directions

Makes 8-10 four-inch waffles.

1. Stir together dry ingredients in one bowl.
2. In separate bowl, combine milk, vinegar, egg yolk, and oil. Whisk with fork.
3. In a third bowl, beat egg white until nearly soft peaks. Sprinkle sugar while whipping until glossy. Gently stir in vanilla
4. Pour milk mixture into dry ingredients and whisk until blended. Fold in egg white mixture with spatula.

For four-inch waffles, about 1/3 cup batter fills the waffle iron for each waffle, but the amount you need to fill your waffle iron will vary according to the size.

  • These had a great texture to them(an I am very much a texture person). These were light, fluffy, and crispy all at the same time! - 1/30/14

  • These were light and crispy, and the best from scratch waffles I have made. Will not be buying Bisquick anytime soon. Well worth the extra work. I also added 1/2 t. of cinnamon too the mix. Lastly, the average calories I have seen for 1 homemade waffle is over 300. Great Job and Thanks!! - 2/7/13

  • Good recipe, I found mine sticking quite a lot which caused the end result to be lopsided, but the taste was really good. I heated up a half cup of unsweetened applesauce which was delicious on these. I think my issue was user error, I will try this again. - 1/19/13

  • Spectacular! I made these true to the recipe and the waffles were the best we've ever had. Like other raters, I've tried a variety of recipes since we got our waffle iron and this is THE recipe for our special family mornings. Thank you! - 9/30/12

  • These waffles are the best waffles I have ever made. I doubled the recipe, and the only substitute I made was whole wheat flour for half of the flour. Had to spray the waffle iron even with all the oil, so will cut some oil next time. So hard to only eat one serving! So worth the extra work. - 1/23/12

  • Delicious!! I've made at least 6 waffle recipes in the last few months, scouring cookbooks and the internet for a light, fluffy waffle recipe - and this one is the best I've found! Thanks! :) Yumm. I made it just as described, just added some cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter before the egg whites. - 6/5/10
