Not a light recipe, but perfect for an occasional treat. These are awesome served with warmed maple syrup or topped with sliced fresh berries.


1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Sugar
1 1/4 cups Water
4 large Eggs; separated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter; melted

Original recipe makes 7



Combine flour, leaveners, salt and sugar and whisk to mix. Add water, egg yolks and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Whisk in melted butter.

Beat egg whites in another bowl to stiff peaks, then fold into batter, half at a time.

At first, it will seem very lumpy, but keep folding and it will smooth out.

Pour into waffle iron and bake until golden brown.

Serve hot with fresh sliced berries or warmed syrup.

Good recipe. Replaces the cake flour with additional all purpose flour and it still turned out great.

These were very good but we had to add more flour as the first two came out like egg white pancakes. Will make again.

Very good! Didn't have cake flour so I used regular all purpose flour. Hubby and I reallt enjoyed these.

If you don't have unsalted butter, leave put the salt

Exceptional recipe! I would suggest sifting the dry ingredients to make lighter, more crispy waffles.

I used Beyette's method since I didn't have cake flour and they were fabulous! I am sure they'd be great the right way, but I don't always have those ingredients. Light, fluffy and oh so sweet!!

This is so good

Good recipe! I used buttermilk instead of water, added 1/2 cup of sugar, and self rising flour instead of cake flour, all purpose flour, leavening agents. It's a short cut and turns out very well! Family loved it! Thanks for sharing
