The Very Best Waffles

The Very Best Waffles recipe

Cornstarch is the secret for crispy waffles. Cornstarch guarantees that your waffles will be crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.

Recipe Ingredients

Method

  1. Prepare Waffle Batter: Whisk the flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. In another bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla extract until blended.
  3. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until just mixed. Set batter aside for 10 to 15 minutes so the baking powder has time to activate.
  4. Make Waffles: Heat the oven to 200 degrees F and heat the waffle iron. Pour the batter onto the heated waffle iron (ours takes about 1/2 cup) and cook until the waffle is crisp and golden brown. Immediately set the cooked waffle directly on the oven rack to keep it warm and crisp.
  5. Repeat with the remaining batter, holding the waffles in the oven (try not to stack them).
  6. Serve with butter, syrup and/or berries.

Buttermilk Waffles: To make buttermilk waffles, simply replace the milk with 1 cup of buttermilk. Or, use a combination of milk and buttermilk.

Extra Light Waffles: For even lighter waffles you can separate the egg. Mix the yolk into the wet ingredients. Then, whip the egg white until stiff peaks form. Once you’ve blended the dry and wet ingredients, fold in the beaten egg white.
