Classic Waffles

This is the recipe my mom always used for waffles when I was growing up. It makes a light and fluffy waffle, thanks to separating the eggs, beating the egg whites and then carefully folding them into the batter right before cooking. Enjoy!

Recipe for Classic Waffles from Better Homes & Gardens, what my mom always made growing up

This recipe originally came from the Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book, although the directions written below are in my own words. When I was growing up I always thought it was funny how trashed the waffle and pancake page was in my mom’s copy of the book. Fast forward 30 years and mine looks exactly the same, which makes me mighty happy.
