Mom’s Homemade Waffles


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 egg yolks

1 3/4 cups milk

1/2 cup cooking oil or shortening, melted

2 egg whites


In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder & 1/2 teaspoon salt. In a small mixing bowl beat egg yolks with a fork. Beat in milk and cooking oil or melted shortening. Add to flour mixture all at once. Stir mixture till blended but still slightly lumpy.

In a small mixer bowl beat egg whites till still peaks form. Gently fold beaten egg whites into flour-milk mixture, leaving a few fluffs of white. Do not overmix.

Pour batter onto grids of a preheated, greased waffle baker, close and cook until golden brown. Eat with toppings of choice.
