8 servings (serving size: 2 waffles and 3 tablespoons syrup)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup soy flour
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups 1% low-fat milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 large egg yolks
2 large egg whites
Dash of sugar
1 1/2 cups maple syrup
Whole strawberries (optional)
How to Make It
Lightly spoon the flours into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flours, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Combine the milk, oil, and egg yolks; add to the flour mixture, stirring until smooth.
Place the egg whites in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at high speed until foamy. Add the sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the batter.
Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray; preheat. Spoon about 1/3 cup batter per 4-inch waffle onto hot waffle iron, spreading batter to edges. Cook 5 to 6 minutes or until steaming stops; repeat procedure with remaining batter. Serve with syrup; garnish with strawberries, if desired.
Good. I added a liberal dash of sugar and cut out the soy flour, since I had none on hand and didn't care to purchase the stuff just for one round of waffles. Turned out fine with 2 cups of plain flour.
Great recipe. I forgot the sugar, and they were still fine, especially considering we have real VT Maple Syrup!
I used whole wheat flour instead of soy, and I decreased the cinnamon and added 1/2 Tbs of cardamom.
Our favorite recipe is a risen waffle with yeast, but when that's too much hassle, I think this will be the go-to.
These are our favorite waffles. I don't always have soy flour on hand so I often just use 1/2 cup of wheat flour instead. I don't cut back on the cinnamon and I add 2 tsp of sugar to the dough rather than the egg whites. My kids love these with chocolate chips, so I sprinkle the chips on top of the dough once it is poured into the waffle iron. Definitely a weekend treat!
