Basic Waffle Recipe


I believe that everyone should have an arsenal of recipes that they feel comfortable whipping up at a moment’s notice.

This is one of my sure-fire recipes from one of my favorite recipe books ~ The Settlement Cook Book 1965 edition. Once you have a go-to waffle recipe in your repertoire the world is yours to conquer.

Recipe for world domination & waffle perfection:

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs, separated

2 cups milk

4 to 6 tablespoons melted butter

Combine the dry ingredients (the original recipe says to sift them twice ~ if you feel ambitious, please do so. If you feel lazy or don’t have a sifter, it is not a necessary step). Beat your egg whites until stiff but not dry – set them to the side. Beat the yolks, add the milk, and mix this all in with the dry ingredients. Stir only until just blended then add the melted butter. Fold in the egg whites. Bake in an electric waffle iron. Serve warm with whatever toppings you desire!!
