1 egg, separated

1⁄4 cup melted butter

3⁄4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk

11⁄2 teaspoons baking powder

1⁄8 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat waffle iron. In a small bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the egg white until stiff. In another bowl, beat the egg yolk well and mix in the melted butter and milk.
In a medium-sized bowl, stir the baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon into the flour, blending thoroughly.
Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture. Pour the beaten egg mixture into the well and stir into the dry ingredients. The batter should resemble a muffin batter. Gently fold in the egg white.
Cook the waffles according to the instructions on the waffle iron.
