Breakfast and Brunch, Eric's Recipes | 2 comments

Around here it is tradition that daddy makes the waffles. Eric’s waffles are hands down the best I’ve ever had. He usually makes a gigantic batch – three times the recipe – so we can have a stash in the freezer for the next week or two. Watch out though, they disappear fast so you better stake your claim while you can.

Daddy’s Waffles

1/2 c butter, melted
3/4 c sugar
2 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 c milk
3 eggs, separated
pinch of salt
twist of lemon

Sift dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add egg yolks and milk to dry ingredients and beat together thoroughly.

In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Stir 1/2 of the egg whites into the batter, and then fold in the remaining egg whites and stir until well blended. Add butter and twist of lemon, and mix until smooth.

Pour scant 1/3 c of batter on the heated waffle mold. Makes about 12-18 waffles.

    I was looking to try a new waffle recipe, so I gave this one a try. It was too sweet for me, but I did like the flavor the butter gave it versus the oil that my old stand-by recipe calls for. My waffle iron must be quite a bit bigger as I only got 8 waffles from the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
