Serves : Makes about seven 3 3/4-inch-square waffles

When we made these dead-simple waffles from Pam Anderson's cookbook, Cook Smart, their rich buttermilk flavor and crisp yet light texture won over even longtime yeast-waffle fans. The recipe can be doubled, tripled, even quadrupled. Don't stack the waffles—they will become moist and limp. If necessary, recrisp directly on a rack in a 200° oven.  More Brunch Ideas

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 200°. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, salt, baking powder and baking soda. In a glass measuring cup, blend the buttermilk, vegetable oil and milk. Beat in the egg yolk.

Step 2    

In a medium bowl, beat the egg white to soft peaks. Add the sugar and beat until firm and glossy. Beat in the vanilla.

Step 3    

Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until just blended. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the beaten egg white until just incorporated.

Step 4    

Preheat an 8-inch square waffle iron and oil it lightly. Pour about 1 1/2 cups of the waffle batter into the preheated waffle iron and gently smooth the surface with a spatula. Bake for 4 minutes, or until browned and crisp. Transfer the waffles to the oven rack to keep warm and repeat with the remaining batter. Serve at once with maple syrup.
