  • 156 g Flour (Plain) (1.25 cups)
  • 28 g Rice Krispies cereal (1 cup)
  • 96 g Corn Starch / Corn Flour (3/4 cup)
  • 55 g Sugar (Granulated) (1/4 cup)
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 3/4 t Salt (Table)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 355 mL milk (1.5 cups)
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 118 mL vegetable oil (1/2 cup)


Preheat traditional waffle iron to medium.

Stir flour, Rice Krispies, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in large bowl. With electric mixer or balloon whisk, beat egg whites in bowl to soft peaks. Whisk egg yolks, milk, vanilla, and oil together in medium bowl.

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 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 waffles are best served right off the waffle iron, but they can be reheated so everyone can eat at once. Transfer the cooked waffles to a wire rack set on top of a baking sheet in a 400F/200C/Gas 6 oven and bake until crisp and hot, 3 to 5 minutes.


Like the convenience of frozen waffles but don't like their stale flavor? Our waffles freeze beautifully. After cooling the waffles, wrap each in plastic, then freeze in a zipper-lock bag for up to one month. To serve, place the waffles on a wire rack set on a baking sheet and bake in a 400F/200C/Gas 6 oven until crisp and hot, about 5 minutes.


Note from source: All waffle irons are not created equal. If your first waffle comes off the iron too pale or too dark, adjust the heat as necessary. Make sure to fill the waffle iron as directed; if you don't use enough batter, the Rice Krispies can scorch.
