- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 4 large eggs, separated
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 cups whole milk
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the waffle maker.
Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl. In a second bowl whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow. Add the milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract to the eggs and whisk to combine.
Add the flour mixture to the egg-milk mixture and whisk just until blended. Do not overmix.
In a third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, about 1 minute.
Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Do not overmix!
When the green indicator comes on, pour ¾ to 1 cup of the batter onto each grid of the waffle maker. Close, then turn the waffle maker to the other side and let cook for 5 minutes. The waffles should be golden and crisp. Repeat cooking with remaining batter.
Serve immediately with toppings of your choice.
