Homemade fluffy waffles that are crispy on the outside and light on the inside.



6 serves

Prep time

10 minutes

Cooking time

30 minutes


  • 210 grams plain flour

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 3 large eggs, separated

  • 115 grams unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled

  • 1/3 cup white sugar

  • 420 mls buttermilk

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • toppings: butter, maple syrup


  • Preheat the waffle maker onto your highest temperature. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks, butter, sugar, vanilla and buttermilk together until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk gently until smooth. Do not over mix.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the egg whites into the batter.
  • Pour batter into each well of the waffle maker, or less if your waffle maker is smaller and close the lid. Cook waffles until golden brown and crisp, 5-6 minutes. Transfer the cooked waffles to a plate and keep them covered to repeat making the rest of the batter. Serve the waffles with your favourite toppings.
