Author: Shelly


  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 2/3 Cups Milk or half water half milk
  • 1/3 Cup Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Maple Extract


  • First, mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks.
  • Put the egg yolks in the dry ingredients. Whip the egg whites until stiff.
  • Mix the wet ingredients together.
  • Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix. Try not to over mix the batter. Once you have your batter and egg whites ready to go pour the batter into the egg whites. Then gently fold them together.
  • At first, you will have lumps of egg white in the batter.
  • After a while of folding your batter will look like this. As you can see most of the egg white is mixed in.
  • Scoop into a well-oiled waffle iron and bake following your waffle iron’s instructions. I cook mine until the steam stops coming out.
