Light as a Feather Waffles

From AIRE CASTLE INN & STAINED GLASS ART

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.
