  • 2.5 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 2.5   Tbs. sugar
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter melted
  • 2 cups Skim milk more if needed
  • Melted butter or nonstick cooking spray for brushing/spraying


  1. Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. In a bowl sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a second bowl use whisk (I use small from the electric mixer) to beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow.
  4. Add Melted butter, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine very well. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until well blended. Do not over mix.
  5. In the third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, few minutes or so.
  6. Gently fold egg whites into the waffle batter.
  7. Lightly brush butter on the waffle iron and pour enough batter in iron to just cover waffle grid.
  8. Close and cook as per manufacturer's instructions -until golden brown.

Recipe Notes

In the original recipe, vanilla extract is used, I add sometimes but not all the time! You can add tbs. or so. It is very important for the good waffle to separate eggs and beat them separately. You will notice the difference if you never did it before!
