- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 large eggs, separated
- 2 cups milk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- CINNAMON CREAM SYRUP:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine the egg yolks, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.
Meanwhile, for syrup, combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in the milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Serve with waffles.
Freeze option: Cool waffles on wire racks. Freeze between layers of waxed paper in a resealable plastic freezer bag. Reheat waffles in a toaster on medium setting. Or, microwave each waffle on high for 30-60 seconds or until heated through. Yield: 10 waffles (6-1/2 inches) and 1-2/3 cups syrup.
Reviews for Fluffy Waffles
"We made these for Sunday Brunch!! Wonderful! we did double the recipe and added an additional 1/2 cup of flour. We used a Belgian waffle maker and there were no complaints. We also added some vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg to the recipe. We did not make the cinnamon syrup because I had a fresh raspberry syrup ready to go."
"This was probably my fault the syrup didn't come out. it was very runny, and very sweet. The waffles were also very thin. But they tasted great! I took some blueberry preserves we had and mixed a little of the syrup to make a blueberry syrup and we liked that. I will make again to make sure I didn't do something wrong."
"Not a review, but I had to click stars to ask a question. Could this batter be used to make pancakes? I do not own a waffle iron. It sounds delicious!"
"This is a great waffle recipe: provides the fluffiness of Belgian Waffles, but the recipe is quicker because of the lack of yeast. One improvement I would make, is adding a bit more sugar to the batter, since I like sweet waffles.Also, I used peanut oil, since that is all I had on hand, and it worked well. Also, I didn't have all the ingredients for the syrup, so I made my own caramel syrup, which I wrote up here: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/community/super-quick-caramel-sauce"
"Waffles were exactly as described- fluffy, light, and tasted amazing.Syrup was delicious too. A little on the sweet side, so we spread each waffle with all natural peanut butter first and then drizzled some syrup on top for flavor. Amazing!!!"
"these were very good , the syrup also was good"
