Basic Waffle Recipe
Yields 6 waffles
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.
