  • Waffle Iron


  • 2 cups flour, (all purpose or plain)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (cornflour)
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder, (aluminium-free)
  • 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil,
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


  • Lightly grease your waffle iron plates with nonstick cooking oil spray. Preheat waffle iron following manufacturer's instructions.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornstach, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • Grab a medium-sized bowl and beat the egg whites with a hand beater until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  • In a third bowl, mix the egg yolks with the oil, milk and vanilla extract. Pour the egg yolk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well to combine.
  • Gently fold in the egg whites, being careful not to overbeat the batter.
  • Pour 3/4 cup* batter into the hot waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's directions. (We cook ours on medium-brown setting.)
  • Place cooked waffle on a cooling rack to keep it crisp and repeat with remaining batter.
  • Best served hot with butter, maple syrup or honey, powdered sugar, fruit conserves, chocolate syrup, ice cream, fruit, or any of your favourite toppings.


My waffle iron requires 3/4 cup of batter per waffle. Yours might need more or less. Please refer to your manual.
