1 1/3 cups flour (I use 1 cup unbleached flour, and 1/3 cup wheat flour)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
2 eggs, separated
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 3/4 cups milk
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.
Separate the eggs, adding the yolks to the dry ingredient mixture, and placing the whites in a small mixing bowl.
Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; set aside.
Add milk and melted butter to dry ingredient mixture and blend together with whisk.
Fold stiff egg whites into the mixture.
Ladle mixture into hot waffle iron and cook.
I like to place the waffles on a baking sheet in a 200° oven to keep them warm and crisp until ready to serve. Serve with butter and warmed maple syrup.
