We had a very special breakfast this morning : our very first Waffles !!

I used this fast recipe from the Food Network but I'd like to try one with yeast or buttermilk any suggestions ?



  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups milk
  • non-stick cooking spray


Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. In 1 medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a second bowl use the wooden spoon to beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow. Add the vanilla extract, melted butter, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until blended. Do not over mix. In third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixeruntil soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Using the rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Do not overmix! Coat the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour enough batter in iron to just cover waffle grid. Close and cook as per manufacturer's instructions until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

Natalia, la mia e' con il buttermilk.

2 C flour
2 TBS sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 C nut meal (hazelnut and orange zest...yum!)

2 eggs
1 3/4 C buttermilk
4 oz melted butter

Ho provato due ricette di Orangette, una con il lievito di birra e un'altra che lei ha dichiarato vincitrice tra tante che ha provato, e devo dire che preferisco la mia ricetta.

Buona festa della mamma anche a te!
