Buttermilk Waffles

I wanted to try a different waffle recipe, and specifically one with buttermilk, so I tried this recipe from Allrecipes.  They were kind a pain to make, as in I had to use 3 separate bowls, but the waffles were really good- tender, light, and crisp on the outside.  We had these for dinner the other night, and everyone enjoyed them very much.  I included some whole wheat pastry flour and they still had a great texture.

Buttermilk Waffles
adapted from

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 egg yolks
2 cups buttermilk
3 egg whites

1.Preheat waffle iron. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside.

2.In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Blend in flour mixture alternately with buttermilk.

3.In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain.

4.Spray waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray, or lightly brush with oil. Ladle the batter onto preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Serve immediately.
