These eggnog waffles are a wonderful change from the ordinary.
After the holidays I found a quart of eggnog way in the back of the refrigerator.
It was a snowy day so I decided to experiment.
WOW what great flavor.
2 cups unbleached flour, sifted
2 TSP baking powder
Dash of ground cinnamon
Dash of ground nutmeg
1 TSP vanilla
2 cups eggnog
2 large eggs, separated
4 TBLS (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
Cooking spray, for the waffle iron
Waffle iron heated to the manufacturers instructions.
Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Whisk the eggnog, egg yolks, and butter in another bowl. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until combined; you don’t want the batter to be lumpy or too smooth, mix till somewhere in the middle..
Whisk the egg whites until almost stiff; fold them into the batter.
Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour some of the batter into the middle of the iron, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Close and cook until golden brown and cooked through about 3-5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve with maple syrup and butter. The leftovers should freeze well.
