Batter for Waffles Recipe

  • 5 large eggs, separated
  • 1/4 cup sugar (optional)
  • 1 cup (250 milliliters) milk
  • Sea salt
  • 2 cups (270 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons (60 grams) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  1. Whisk the egg yolks and the sugar (if using) then whisk in the milk and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Whisk in the flour quickly to make a smooth batter, then quickly whisk in the melted butter. Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt to soft points, and fold them into the batter.
  2. Let the batter sit for 1 hour, then make the waffles following the waffle iron manufacturer's directions. The batter will keep very well overnight.
