Step 1

Grease and preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Step 2

In a large bowl, beat together the egg yolks, buttermilk, butter and oil until well combined.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, sift or whisk together the dry ingredients.

Step 4

Gently stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Don't beat the batter; it's unnecessary and will make for tougher waffles.

Step 5

Beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold them into the batter.

Step 6

Bake the waffles according to your waffle iron's instructions. To keep finished waffles crisp as you continue baking, place them in a preheated 200°F oven, directly on the rack.

Step 7

Yield: about 5 large (7") Belgian waffles; or 7 medium (5") square American-style waffles.

5 stars all day. Another waffle winner FEM. I'm going to start thinking of you as the Waffle Queen. Seriously great waffles. Crispy, yet tender and light. I loved them. Served with a little butter and maple syrup. I can't wait till tomorrow, when I can have another. Thanks so much for sharing. Made FYC tag game.
