Waffles with Maple Syrup



  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 large eggs, separated

  • 1 ¾ cups milk

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • Butter, for serving

  • Maple syrup, for serving


  1. Heat waffle iron to high. Heat oven to 200 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks, milk and oil. Add to flour mixture, whisking just until large lumps disappear.

  3. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites to stiff glossy peaks. Fold whites into batter.

  4. Ladle about 1/3 cup batter into each section of the waffle iron; spread batter almost to the edges. Close iron and cook until no steam emerges, 5 to 7 minutes.

  5. Transfer cooked waffles to a baking sheet. Transfer to oven to keep warm while baking the remaining batter. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
