  4. Cook the waffles as directed in the instructions that came with your waffle iron.

Tips from our Bakers

  • For even lighter waffles, try this: Separate the eggs and mix the yolks with the milk, vanilla, and butter. Stir in the dry ingredients. Whisk the whites until medium peaks form, then gently fold them into the batter. Cook waffles as directed.
