Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

(3 servings)

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large egg (separate the yolks and the whites)
  • 1/4 cup butter - melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat your waffle maker.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.

In a separate medium mixing bowl, mix together the buttermilk, egg YOLKS, melted butter and vanilla.

In a third mixing bowl (glass or metal), beat the egg WHITES with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined and moistened. Gently fold the egg whites into the combined mixture.

Bake according to the instructions for your waffle maker.

Light, fluffy and flavorful... the trick to a great texture is the stiffly beaten egg whites. This recipe makes about 3 standard Belgian waffles.
