Delicate sugar-freeÂ waffles with a light buttery taste
2 cups sifted flour*
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, separated
1 1/4 cup milk
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1. In mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
2. In separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
3. In another bowl, beat egg yolks with milk. Add melted butter to egg mixture and stir. Add flour mixture also, stirring to remove most lumps. Finally, fold in egg whites.
4. Cook on pre-heated waffle maker until browned. I like to set a timer so I don't have to keep checking, or risk forgetting to take the waffles out on time! Top with butter and jam or syrup of your choice.
*I really like to use 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of all-purpose flour in this recipe!
Check waffles for doneness by lifting the lid of your waffle iron briefly. We like ours slightly golden, with strawberries on top. You can also serve with whipped cream as a dessert!
This recipe is from my Grandma L. and is the one my mom always made growing up!
2 c whole Strawberries (loosely packed)
1/8 c white sugar
1 t cornstarch (disolved in a little water)
Cut strawberries into halves or quarters (depending on preference; if the strawberries are fairly small you may leave them whole). Place strawberries in a saucepan and pour sugar on top and place on burner set between medium and medium-low. The mixture will slowly become watery at which point you can set the burner to medium. Once the mixture begins to boil add disolved cornstarch while stirring the mixture. After boiling for 1-2 minutes (remember to continue stirring) you can remove from the burner. The syrup can be used hot or can be refrigerated and used cold, depending on preference.
These waffles are so delicious!! I have never tasted a recipe that I like better. I even love to eat them plain, hot off the waffle iron! Sometimes I make extras and freeze to re-heat in the toaster later, but they really are best fresh. I would make these more often except that they are a little time-consuming to make and I'm usually in a hurry and reach for eggs instead. ;) My rating: 10/10
