For those of you who happened upon waffletude hoping to discover some delicious waffle recipe… I don’t want you to be disappointed.
This recipe is the basis to which all variations of waffle batter are built upon. A classic, just like my dad, who was a Texan, used car salesmen, loved to bar-b-que and make waffles on Sunday morning. Of course there is a secret ingredient that makes the difference.
POPI’S BUTTERMILK WAFFLES
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup sugar
2 eggs separated
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted, cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium-sized bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.
In a large bowl beat together until smooth egg yolks (not the whites!) with wet ingredients. Then slowly blend in the dry ingredients stir until all blended.
THE SECRET: Whip the egg whites until small peaks are formed. Fold them into batter. This makes the waffle extra crispy.
Heat up the waffle iron, and you are good to go.
