Next, beat yolks and sugar until mix turns a pale-yellow or off-white. Add your buttermilk and vanilla and mix.
While stirring, gradually add remaining dry ingredients, it helps if you mix remaining dry ingredients separately first in a measuring cup. Make sure not to over mix it or you will excite gluten in flour and over-excited gluten makes for a very chewy waffle. Remember: Think golden, crisp on outside and fluffy or light on inside.
Get your whipped egg whites and add them to rest of your mixture. Gently incorporate them and don’t over mix, or you will lose bubbles. While stirring, add butter.
I have a Krups Wafflechef, it signals you when its heated and ready to go. Baking waffles in this iron only takes about 4 minutes. Don’t go for a cheap, no-name iron, I highly recommend Wafflechef. Pre-heat waffle iron. Add about 2 oz. of batter on each square, making sure you don’t put more than iron can handle. If you do over-do it on batter you will make a mess.
Waffles are great for breakfast or even for dessert. They are great topped with maple syrup or whipped cream and fruit; even ice cream makes a fantastic topping! Happy waffle making!
