Waffles

I came across this yummy waffles recipe the other day and I want to share it with you. It says it is for 4 people but I find that very generous (even if you have teenagers)! The left- overs, if you have any, are easy to freeze and handy to put into a toaster later on for a quick breakfast or to use in a dessert! I like them with some fruit or (and) whipped cream! (Almost) anything with whipped cream is good, right?

Here we go:

Waffles

2 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp sugar

4 large eggs, separated

2 cups milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla or the rind, finely grated, of one lemon

4 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

  1. In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a second bowl, whisk egg yolks, milk, vanilla (or lemon zest) and butter. Form a well in the dry mixture: pour in the liquid mixture. With a wooden spoon, fold together until dry ingredients are just moist.
  2. In a small bowl , whisk egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold whites into batter until batter is slightly lumpy and a little runny. Pour into waffle iron (which you brushed with a little oil) and bake until golden. Serve warm.
