Fluffy Waffles

Recipe from

I love waffles, but the last thing I want to do in the morning is make a recipe that involves yeast or folding in whipped egg whites. Finding a simple waffle recipe that makes light and fluffy waffles can be a tricky thing. Too often the waffles turn out rubbery or dense and heavy. Well, I've finally done it. I've found a simple recipe that makes the most delicious light and fluffy waffles. The trick though is to make sure you don't over cook them (unless you prefer them crispy). Either way, this weekend treat yourself to a simply delicious morning waffle.

What you'll need
2 Eggs
1 3/4 cup Milk
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
2 cups All-purpose flour
1 tbsp Sugar
4 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt

How to
1.  Beat the eggs with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the milk, oil and vanilla and mix until combined.

2.  In a separate bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Add the the egg mixture and beat on low until smooth.

3.  Heat up the waffle iron.  You can spray the iron with non-stick cooking spray, but I prefer to melt some butter and brush it over the iron with a silicone basting brush.

4.  Pour the batter onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown (or a bit longer if you prefer your waffles crispy).  Serve immediately with your choice of topping (picture shows butter, maple syrup and cinnamon).
