Homemade Belgian Waffles

This may be the easiest, most convenient homemade waffle recipe of all time.

No buttermilk.  No "need to go to the store" ingredient.  Just the basic kitchen staples we all keep on hand.  These waffles are fluffy, delicious and devoured in minutes.

I put this recipe together from a few I found on  I needed to adjust amounts because I knew the standard 4-6 servings would barely feed the dog in my house.

This recipe makes 8-10 waffles. 
(can be prepared with a standard waffle iron)

3 cups flour
6 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs, separated

Preheat waffle iron.

In medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt.  Add milk, oil and egg yolks.  Stir until batter is only slightly lumpy. 

With hand or standing mixer, beat egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form (about 2-3 minutes).

Gently fold egg whites into batter.

Using a ladle, scoop batter onto center of waffle iron.  Leave 2" around, allowing room for waffles to spread.

Serve with butter and dust with powdered sugar.  Whipped cream is optional, but highly recommended.

Happy Sunday!
