Use cream straight out of the fridge as it whips faster than when at room temperature.

Ingredients
  • 250g | 2 Cups Flour

  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 Eggs, separated
  • 80ml | ⅓ Cup Oil
  • 500ml | 2 Cups Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Instructions
  1. Sieve the dry ingredients into a large sized mixing bowl. Mix with a whisk so everything is evenly combined.
  2. Seperate the two eggs, placing the yolks into the bowl with the dry ingredients and the whites into a clean bowl.
  3. Measure out the oil, vanilla, and milk and pour into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Give this a mix with a whisk until there is no longer any dry flour.
  4. Use a hand mixer or a whisk to whip the egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the batter until well combined.
  5. Heat a waffle iron and spray with oil or brush on some melted butter.
  6. Measure out around ¾ of a cup of batter and pour into the waffle iron. Leave to cook for 5-10 minutes until browned and crispy.

Notes
These waffles are best served straight out of the waffle iron. To keep them crispy, place the waffles in a single layer on a cooling rack and into a 180c|350f oven until you are ready to serve.
