This is a pure golden recipe from my amazing mother-in-law. Not only are these waffles easy to whip out in 10 minutes or less but they are also the most perfect texture and consistency. I love a waffle that has just enough crisp on the outside while being soft on the inside. If that is what you seek in a waffle then look no further. Here is your "go to" waffle recipe for the rest of your life!
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 egg yolks
1 1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
2 egg whites
Mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) together in a medium sized bowl. Add yolks, milk and oil and mix just until combined. Don't you dare mix out all those lumps. You want them there. Trust me.
In a separate bowl beat the egg whites. The foam will begin to form peaks. Continue beating until you reach stiff peaks (the peaks hold their shape well).
Fold the whites into the batter. Do this by pouring the whites onto the top of the batter. Then gently stir together by bringing your spoon to the bottom of the bowl and scooping batter onto the top of the whites. Continue stirring this way while rotating your bowl until the whites are combined. Your batter should be light and fluffy now.
Pour batter onto a hot, greased waffle iron and cook until desired darkness. Serve hot with butter, syrup, berries, whipped cream, etc.... go crazy. :)
