belgian waffles...

1 3/4 cup flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
1 3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup canola/veg oil
2 egg whites

In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, & salt. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients; set aside.
In another med bowl beat egg yolks slightly. Stir in milk and oil. Add egg yolk mixture all at once to dry mixture. Stir just until combined (batter will be lumpy).
In a separate bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold beaten egg whites into flour and egg yolk mixture, leaving a few fulffs of egg white. Do not overmix.
Pour 1-1 1/2 cups batter onto preheated, lightly greased waffle iron, spreading to edges, if necessary. Bake according to waffle iron directions.

We enjoyed a lovely Belgian waffle bar for New Years Eve. We were well equipped with any kind of topping desired, including chocolate whipped cream!!! YUM! It was a hit, and will probably be our new tradition.
The recipe came from the "Better Homes and Garden" cookbook. If you don't have this one..get it. It is one of the best basic cookbooks out there.
Happy New Year!
