READER'S COMMENT:
"Compared to the Multi-Grain Waffles from EatingWell I made last week, these were fluffy, crispy and oh-so good. I wrote about them in my food blog, "Eating the Rainbow": http://superfoodsyear.blogspot.com/2010/05/brunch-on-deck.html "
EatingWell Waffles Recipe

Makes: 6 servings

Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups nonfat buttermilk, (see Tip)
  • 1 large egg, separated
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, (optional)
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Preparation

  1. Stir whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, the egg yolk, oil and vanilla (if using) in a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon just until moistened.
  2. Beat the 3 egg whites in a grease-free mixing bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar and continue beating until stiff and glossy. Whisk one-quarter of the beaten egg whites into the batter. Fold in the remaining beaten egg whites with a rubber spatula.
  3. Preheat a waffle iron. Brush the surface lightly with oil. Fill the waffle iron two-thirds full of batter. Cook until the waffles are crisp and golden, 5 to 6 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter, brushing the surface with oil before cooking each batch.

Tips & Notes

  • Tip: No buttermilk? You can use buttermilk powder prepared according to package directions. Or make “sour milk”: the ratio is 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.
