These fluffy homemade waffles are the perfect brunch recipe. Learn all the secrets to making waffles with tender centers and golden edges.
2 1/4cupsall-purpose flour
1 1/2teaspoonbaking powder
1/2cupunsalted buttermelted and cooled
whipping creamfresh berries & maple syrup for serving
Preheat the waffle iron to medium high heat according to manufacturer's instructions.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a medium bowl beat the egg whites until peaks form. I use an electric mixer for this.
In a separate medium bowl or large liquid measuring cup whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract and buttermilk.
Gently fold the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients using a large rubber spatula.
Then gently fold in the egg whites.
Lightly spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter into each 1/4 section of the waffle iron. Close the lid and cook for 4-6 minutes until golden. This may vary depending on your waffle maker.
Transfer cooked waffles to a wire rack, and repeat the process with the rest of the batter.
*If you don't have buttermilk, add 1 tbsp lemon juice to a large liquid measuring cup. Then fill to the 1 and 3/4 cup line with 1% or 2% milk. Allow to sour for 5 minutes before adding to the batter.
