I like to serve these flavorful waffles when we have company because they add nice color to the table and look so elegant, yet they're so easy to prepare. Everyone raves about the unique rich vanilla sauce served over the warm waffles.

  1. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat egg yolks lightly. Add 1-2/3 cups milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Set aside 1/4 cup batter in a small bowl. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into remaining batter.
  2. Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown.
  3. In a saucepan, heat sugar and remaining milk until scalded. Stir a small amount into reserved batter; return all to pan. Bring to a boil; boil for 5-7 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; add vanilla and mix well (sauce will thicken upon standing). Serve over waffles. Top with berries. Yield: 6-8 waffles (6-1/2 inches).

"I found this while looking for a vanilla cream recipe like the one at ihop. This vanilla cream is even better than ihop's. I have not tried making the actual waffles. What I do is cut the recipe in half then use the batter to make a jar full of the vanilla cream! Crazy, I know, but my family has even stopped using syrup for pancakes!"

"I love the vanilla sauce and fresh strawberries! These waffles are a lighter, fluffier texture than other recipes."

"This is a fantastic waffle recipe! I served it with fresh strawberries and blueberries, and it was a big hit! I did modify it by adding 2 Tbsp of sugar to the waffles, though."

"I LOVE this recipe! I'm a huge fan of fluffy waffles, but not a fan of maple surup. This vanilla sauce is a great variation-that is great with any type of fruit."
