I bet our family-favourite fluffy waffles will become your family's favourite too! There's a reason why you won't want to make any other waffle recipe - these are light and fluffy with crispy outsides. Waffle perfection.
Turn on your waffle iron and heat to temperature. (My waffle iron does not need to be greased, but maybe yours does!)
In a small bowl, beat the egg whites on high until they form stiff peaks. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Then pour in the melted butter, milk, and egg yolk and briefly beat ingredients together until smooth. (Or use a whisk or spoon.)
Gently fold in the beaten egg whites, making sure to fold in one continuous direction.
Pour the waffle batter into your waffle iron and cook according to the manufacturer's directions.
Serve right away. Smother waffles with maple syrup, fresh fruit, or anything you desire!
