My new All Clad waffle maker is proving to be a favorite kitchen appliance.
I tried the yeasted waffles and, while good, they were not as good as my traditional pancake recipe, adapted to make a fluffy batter that results in a light tasty waffle.
This is adapted from Uncle Siggyâ€™s Pancakes
2 Â½ cups sifted all purpose flour
Â½ cup sugar
4 Â½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, separated
2 cups milk
Â¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter
Sift dry ingredients into large bowl.Â Melt butter in microwave in medium bowl.Â Beat yolks into butter and add milk.Â Gradually stir liquid into dry ingredients until blended.Â Beat with mixer for a few minutes until lumps are minimal.Â Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter.
Heat waffle iron to medium high.Â When heated, place 1/3 cup into each section of waffle iron.Â Close lid and check for desired color in 3-4 minutes.
Serve with warmed syrup, butter or berries as desired.
