2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
3 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Eggs (separated)
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 cups Milk
I love these waffles because they are fast and easy to make and the perfect breakfast to make everyone feel like it's the weekend. Top them with sweet berries or savory bacon or both. Anything goes! Not to worry if you do not have a waffle iron, this recipe can also be made into perfectly fluffy pancakes.
Start by adding your flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon to a large bowl and use a whisk to combine the ingredients.
Using two bowls, separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. To the bowl of yolks, add the vegetable oil, vanilla and milk. Mix together until well combined.
Beat the egg whites with an electic mixer until stiff peaks form and set aside.
Pour the egg yolk mixture into the flour mixture and combine using a whisk. Do not use an electric mixer here, as it can lead to a thick and heavy dough.
You want the consistency to be that of a runny cake batter.
Once you have your batter and the beaten egg yolks prepared, slowly fold the egg whites into the flour mixture. Keep folding until you have one consistent batter.
Now you are ready to fill your waffle iron (or start flipping pancakes).
Cook your waffles until they are golden brown and serve.
