All Clad Waffle Maker with Fluffy Pancake Batter

All Clad Waffle Maker with Fluffy Pancake Batter

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 Siggy’s Pancakes
2 ½ cups sifted all purpose flour
½ cup sugar
4 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, separated
2 cups milk
¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter

Sift dry ingredients into large bowl.  Melt butter in microwave in medium bowl.  Beat yolks into butter and add milk.  Gradually stir liquid into dry ingredients until blended.  Beat with mixer for a few minutes until lumps are minimal.  Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter.
Heat waffle iron to medium high.  When heated, place 1/3 cup into each section of waffle iron.  Close lid and check for desired color in 3-4 minutes.
Serve with warmed syrup, butter or berries as desired.

    We have been using the “original” Uncle Siggy Pancake recipe for waffles and love them! One of the kid’s favorites! I’ll need to try the recipe modification the next time we have waffles!

    We are slaves to the waffle light at our house! We enjoy a family recipe from my grandfather. Over 50 years ago my mother had to stand over my grandfathers shoulder and take notes, including dumping out ingredients into separate bowls to be measured to find out exact amounts as my grandfather did everything by “feel”. In our family Bill is now the “Waffle Meister” and has finessed my grandfathers recipe into his own. The success of our waffle recipe? A couple of heaping tablespoons of graham flour, egg whites and yolks beaten separately and homemade vanilla! Waffles for dinner?
