- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs, separated, plus 2 additional egg whites
- 1 stick (8 tablespoons) salted butter, melted, plus softened butter, for serving
- Warm syrup, for serving
Special equipment: Waffle iron
Preheat the waffle iron to the regular setting.
Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla and 2 egg yolks. Pour over the dry ingredients and very gently stir until halfway combined. Pour in the melted butter and continue mixing very gently until combined.
Scoop the batter into your waffle iron in batches and cook according to its directions (lean toward the waffles being a little deep golden and crisp!). Serve immediately with softened butter and warm syrup.
