Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 12 mins
Total Time: 22 mins
Servings: 4 waffles


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter - melted and slightly cooled to room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk - room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs - white and yolks separated
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


  • In large bowl whisk the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and baking soda, and salt. Set aside. 
  • In a medium bowl combine butter, buttermilk, vanilla, and egg yolks. Whisk until fully combined. 
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, gently whisking (or use a fork) until just combined!
  • In a separate bowl add the egg whites. Beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Then add the sugar to the egg whites and beat on medium/high speed until sugar has been fully mixed in.
  • Using a spatula, fold the egg whites into the batter. Do not overmix.
  • Preheat the waffle iron. Grease with butter or cooking spray. When ready, scoop 1 cup of batter onto the waffle iron… waffle irons differ in size so you may need more or less batter. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes and 30 seconds. 
  • To keep waffles warm, place waffles in an oven preheated at 200°F. *


*To keep waffles warm and to add extra crispiness, preheat the oven to 200°F. After each waffle is finished cooking in the waffle iron, remove it and place it in the oven to stay warm. You can place the waffle directly on the oven rack or on a cookie sheet, it's up to you.
