Buttermilk Waffles

These waffles are light and fluffy and taste delicious. They do take some time and effort but I think they are worth it. They are way better then the boxed mixes.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3, separated large or extra large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
5 Tbsp., melted and slightly cooled unsalted butter, plus more melted butter for cooking
2 tsp. sugar

Preheat a waffle iron. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks until blended, then whisk in the buttermilk and the 5 Tbsp. of melted butter. Add the yolk mixture to the flour mixture and whisk until a smooth batter forms.

In a bowl, using a hand held electric mixer, beat the egg whites and sugar until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the whites into the batter until incorporated.

Lightly brush the waffle iron with melted butter. Pour enough batter for 1 waffle into the preheated waffle iron. Using a rubber spatula, quickly spread the batter to within 1/4 inch of the edge of the iron. Lose the lid and cook according to the manufacturer's directions.

Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!!
