These easy waffles are the ultimate classic crispy outside and a soft inside waffle recipe!



  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs, whites and yolks separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 3/4 cup buttermilk, room temperature


  1. Heat your waffle iron and spray lightly with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Set this aside.
  3. In another large bowl whisk together the egg yolks, vanilla, brown sugar and oil.
  4. In alternating additions add the dry ingredients and the buttermilk into the bowl with the egg yolk mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until smooth.
  5. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment beat the reserved egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  6. Fold the egg whites into the waffle batter until just combined.
  7. Scoop 3/4 cup of the batter into the hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown.
  8. Serve immediately


To turn these into whole wheat waffles, replace 1 cup of the all purpose flour with 1 cup of whole wheat flour. Combining the all purpose with the whole wheat flour makes a nice textured waffle with a bit of a nutty flavor.
