Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 5 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup club soda, chilled
  • Butter and maple syrup, optional

Directions

Separate eggs. Place egg whites in a clean, dry bowl; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
In another bowl, whisk together next five ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks, milk, oil, vanilla and vinegar until blended. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar; continue beating until stiff peaks form.
Preheat waffle maker. Stir together flour mixture, egg mixture and club soda just until combined. Fold egg whites into batter. Bake waffles according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown. Serve with butter and maple syrup if desired. Yield: 12 waffles.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Make your waffles ghostly by dolloping them with whipped cream and adding sprinkles for eyes.
  • Leftover waffles can be frozen for a quick and easy breakfast later. Lay waffles on a cookie sheet to freeze. Once frozen, stack several between waxed paper and place in a freezer bag or container. To reheat, just pop them in the toaster or toaster oven.
