Crispy and Light Waffles

Finally!!! PERFECTLY Crispy and Light Waffles |

3.75 oz all purpose flour (about 3/4 cup)
1.25 oz corn starch (about 1/4 cup)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup milk
1 tbsp white vinegar
5 tbsp melted butter
1 extra large egg, separated
1 tbsp amaretto liqueur (optional, but gives it a lovely nutty aroma)
1 tbsp vanilla sugar (or do regular sugar with 1/4 tsp vanilla extract)

Place the milk and vinegar in a medium bowl and set it aside so it can curdle a bit. Preheat your waffle iron.

In another bowl, whisk to combine the flour, cornstarch, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

Add the melted butter, amaretto, and egg yolk to your curdled milk, and whisk until well combined.

Place the egg white in a very clean glass or metal mixing bowl (no plastic or the whites won’t whip up), and use a mixer to beat the egg white until foamy:
Once foamy, add the vanilla sugar and beat until you get stiff peaks. You check for stiff peaks by putting the beater heads directly into the bottom of the bowl, lifting straight up out of the bowl, and inverting the beaters, like this:Whisk the curdled milk into the dry ingredients, and make sure to leave some lumps. Next, add the stiff egg whites in plops, and gently fold them into the batter to lighten it. It’s fine to leave a few egg white clumps in there, because you don’t want to deflate them too much.

Time to cook them waffles! Pour the batter into your waffle iron, and note that you will have to play around with your settings. For my particular waffle iron, cooking them on high burned them, and medium was about right for mine. I served my waffles with blueberry sauce, fresh berries, and a dusting of powdered sugar. Perfect for summer berry season. Enjoy!

Makes 6-8 waffles, so probably about good for 2 people.

Many thanks FifteenSpatulas!

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by!
