Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. In 1 medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a second bowl use the wooden spoon to beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow. Add the vanilla extract, melted butter, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until blended. Do not over mix. In third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Using the rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Do not overmix! Coat the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour enough batter in iron to just cover waffle grid. Close and cook as per manufacturer's instructions until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

They turned out perfect! I actually used 1 TB sugar, instead of 2. I had to remember to leave them on until the little grill light turns off, otherwise they are not crispy, but that's just user error. These are great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Crisp and light - not spongy or eggy as mentioned in other reviews. Used all purpose flour instead of cake flour and 3T sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would give this No stars if I could The taste of it is ok once you get past the spongey texture. If i wanted a sponge for breakfast I would have put all this time into it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I changed the recipe a little: all-purpose flour in exchange for the cake flour 3 tbsp sugar instead of 2 tbsp 1 tsp vanilla extract vs. ½ and half the salt item not reviewed by moderator and published
These aren't "authentic" Belgian waffles, which are made with yeast & "pearl sugar" on an oval waffle iron, not square. Shame on you Food Network. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The waffles tasted too eggy for my liking. Added cheese to the second batch and they made a much better savory dish than something I would add sweeter toppings too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked these a lot! I did not have cake flour and I used regular flour and they came out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These were very tasty! Maybe I am a little slower of a cook and they took me a pinch longer than 13 minutes to prepare, but worth the time! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just an FYI, when the directions say to whip the egg whites until they form "soft peaks", they should look like a bowl of whipped cream. This is what makes them light and airy on the inside, and crispy on the outside. -That and cooking them in the waffle maker until the light turns off. item not reviewed by moderator and published
