2 cups white flour (all purpose)   260 g
2 tsp baking powder   6 g
2 tbsp sugar   24 g
1/8 tsp salt   0.4 g
3 eggs size large    
1 1/2 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2%   375 mL
1/2 cup butter, unsalted, melted   110 g

Before you start

A mixer will be very useful to beat the egg whites.

A waffle iron will be needed to cook the waffles.

Preheat the oven to its lowest temperature to keep the initial waffles warm while you are cooking some more.


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  2. Separate the egg whites from the yolks: add the whites to another bowl; add the yolks to the dry mixture, incorporating them one at a time and alternating with milk. Blend gently, then add the melted butter. Set aside.
  3. Beat the egg whites to form stiff peaks using a mixer, then fold them into the mixture, blending gently with a spatule.
  4. Start the waffle iron. Pour about 1/2 cup of the batter. Close and cook following the instructions of the manufacturer.
  5. Remove the first waffle and continue to cook the remaing batter. Keep the waffles warm in the oven while cooking the others.
  6. Serve immediately with the toppings of your choice (fruits, maple sirop etc).
