This recipe came in the mail this week in the Thanksgiving Point Gazette so I decided to give it a try yesterday since I had buttermilk in the fridge leftover from the Whoopie Pies. They were the best waffles I’ve ever made! Take your time and follow the directions carefully so that you get the right texture and fluffiness.
2 cups flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, separated
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside.
2 Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry.
3 In a third bowl, whisk together egg yolks, buttermilk, butter and vanilla. Pour this wet mixture into bowl with dry ingredients and stir briefly until just combined. Carefully fold whites into batter.
4 Pour 2/3 – 3/4 cup batter into waffle maker and cook according to waffle maker instructions.
(I didn’t have any berries to make this syrup but here’s the recipe for future use.)
Mixed Berry Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups frozen mixed berries
Combine sugar and cornstarch in saucepan. Stir in water and add berries. Bring to a boil and stir until syrup begins to thicken.
