Light as a Feather WafflesFrom AIRE CASTLE INN & STAINED GLASS ART
- 2 cups Self-rising Flour
- 1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
- 3/4 tsp. Salt
- 2 tbsp. Sugar
- 4 Eggs; separated
- 1 3/4 cup Milk
- 1/2 cup Olive Oil
Preheat waffle iron(s). The Belgian waffle iron gives you crispy waffles. The traditional square iron is not quite so crispy and our heart-shaped waffle iron gives us a softer textured waffle. All are very tasty.
Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
In a small bowl, separate & beat the egg yolks, then add milk and oil. Stir into the dry mixture until smooth.
Beat the egg whites until stiff with a mixer. Use a large spoon to gently "fold" the whites into the batter.
Spoon into the waffle iron.
We like to sprinkle chopped pecans on top of batter before closing the waffle iron.
