Crisp and Fluffy WafflesSubmitted by: LETHALBLONDE
IntroductionSome 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!

3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup corn starch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup milk, less one tbsp
1 tbsp vinegar (2 previous ing. substituted for buttermilk)
6 tbsp olive or vegetable oil
1 egg yolk
1 egg white
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
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.
Number of Servings: 10

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
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
