  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs (separate yolks & whites)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (canola)
  • 1 3/4 cups milk


In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt together. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks with a fork, mixing in the milk and vegetable oil and add to the flour mixture all at once. Stir until blended all together. In another bowl, beat the egg whites till they form a soft peak and gently fold them into the flour mixture.

(Don't over-mix - you want to have them fluffy and light, over mixing will make them tough.) If batter looks too thick, you can add a few extra drops of milk. (The batter should look thicker than pancake batter.) Spray the waffle iron well with non-stick cooking spray before pouring batter in iron. Be certain to spray after each waffle, so they do not stick. Serve with syrup or fruit.

Light and Crispy Belgian Waffles

Makes 8 (7-inch) round waffles

Replacing the butter with vegetable oil reduced the moisture in the batter and swapping some of the flour for cornstarch made for crisper waffles, but it was the surprising addition of Rice Krispies to the batter that delivered an extra-crisp and light texture. The cereal imparted a malty, slightly sweeter flavor, and each puffed grain of rice produced a tiny pocket of air in the waffles. For single waffle makers, use 2/3 cup batter per waffle. For double waffle makers, use 1 1/3 cups batter in total. If you don't use enough batter, the Rice Krispies can scorch. Serve with syrup.



  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


Preheat traditional waffle iron to medium. Meanwhile, stir flour, Rice Krispies, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in large bowl. Whisk egg yolks, milk, vanilla, and oil together in medium bowl.

With electric mixer or balloon whisk, beat egg whites in bowl to soft peaks. Pour milk mixture over dry ingredients and whisk until combined. Whisk in beaten whites until just combined. Do not overmix; a few streaks of whites should be visible.

Pour 2/3 cup batter (see note above) into center of preheated waffle iron and use back of dinner spoon to spread batter toward outer edges (batter should reach about 1/2 inch from edges of iron before closing lid). Close lid and cook until deep golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately.

Our grandsons love waffles and especially love chocolate chip waffles. We just got a new waffle maker that makes the larger Belgian style waffles. We found that mixing chocolate chips in the batter makes a mess on the waffle iron when they melt.


We solved the problem by baking the waffles plain first, then when they come out of the waffle maker nice and hot, we sprinkle the chocolate chips in the squares. The boys love it this way now and we just cut the strips of waffles so they can just pick up a strip and enjoy their "chocolate chip waffle". The chips melt in the squares and no mess on the waffle iron.
