Mom's Light Waffles

A few month ago my Mom made waffles for my nephew.  He stood by her and curiously watched her.  Finally when she asked him if he was ready to eat, he exclaimed, "WOW Grandma, I thought waffles only came from a box!!" So cute!!  It is kind of a tradition my mom has started to make the grandkids waffles for breakfast when they visit her house.  My girls kept on her until she made them and we were all happy she did. She said this is a recipe that my grandma always made. They were light and delicious!! We had no leftovers!!
Mom's Light Waffles
2 eggs (separate the whites and yolks)
2 cups milk
4 Tablespoons melted butter
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine 2 egg yolks and rest of the ingredients except; egg whites.
Beat 2 egg whites until they peak.  Fold into the other mixture.
Cook according to your waffle maker directions.
We served them with Buttermilk Syrup. Light and delicious!!
Thanks to my sweet Mom!!


  1. Mmmmm I love waffles. I haven't made them in a long time because I am trying to cut back on carbs to get my body alkaline.

  2. I've never made homemade waffles, bet they're great! Love the added beaten egg whites:@)

  3. That is similar to the recipe I use for waffles. The beaten egg whites make all the difference.

  4. What a fun tradition to begin! I always liked waffles so much better than pancakes. There were all those little squares to fill with butter and syrup. :-)

  5. If I made these waffles I wouldn't have leftovers either Tiffanee! They look delicious!

  6. These even look light in your pictures. Never would have thought to beat the egg whites separately on my own. Yum!

  7. What a lovely tradition, Tiffanee. My grandkids don't get to visit often so now I have Bellegem Waffle Mix sent to them every few months from Williams-Sonoma. My son-in-law is the waffle maker when I'm not around and he just loves it!!! (I also sent them a new waffle maker just to be sure)

    Please thank your mom for sharing this recipe. Now I want waffles and ice cream!!!
