My go-to recipe for crispy golden waffles for breakfast or brunch. They're super crispy on the outside but still have a fluffy, soft interior.


Eggs 2 , separated
Whole buttermilk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Vegetable oil 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Vanilla extract/Vanilla paste 1 Teaspoon
All purpose flour
Cornstarch 2 1/2 Ounce
Baking powder 1 Tablespoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)


Getting Ready

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.


Separate the egg yolks and whites, and beat together the egg yolks, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla to combine.

Whisk to combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Combine the leftover egg whites with the sugar, and whip to soft to stiff peaks (if you lift the beaters straight out of the egg whites, then invert the beaters, the egg white should stand up on its own as a stiff peak, or just barely fall to the side).

Stir the buttermilk liquid into the flour mixture (make sure the batter is still a little lumpy), then fold in the egg whites, being careful not to deflate them.

Pour the batter into a preheated waffle maker and cook for about 5 minutes each.

Transfer the waffle into the oven for at least 5 minutes, placing it directly onto the oven rack so the steam can escape. Then it's ready to be enjoyed!
