4-H Waffles

This is the recipie my mom used for waffles growing up. It comes right from my old 4H book. They take a little more time than a mix you just add water to, but they are worth the couple extra steps! My mom would cook and crumble bacon right into the batter making them even more tasty. They are light, fluffy & delicious. The next time you have a slow Saturday morning try them out, you won't be disappointed.

2 C. Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. Sugar
3 Eggs separated
1 1/2 C. Milk
4 Tbsp. Oil

Pre-heat Waffle Iron. Mix dry ingredients together and set aside. Combine egg yolks, milk and oil and mix well. Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Carefully fold beaten egg whites into batter. Pour batter into the center of a hot waffle iron. Bake for 3-5 minutes or until steam stops escaping.

Cook and crumble 8 strips of bacon and add to batter right before cooking, if desired.
