World's Best Waffles Recipe

I pride myself on being a good cook who learned everything about baking and cooking from my very patient mother. Credit also goes to my father, who suffered through my many less-than-successful experiments!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + rising Bake: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm milk. Beat egg yolks lightly; beat into yeast mixture. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, salt and nutmeg; stir into yeast mixture just until combined. Add butter and mix well.
  • 2. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45-60 minutes.
  • 3. Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown. Yield: 12-16 waffles (about 6-1/2 inches).

"This recipe is a keeper! I've made a lot of different waffle recipes, but this one comes out so fluffy and light and has a wonderful flavor. I'm looking forward to experimenting with different flavors with this great base! Thank you!"
