I know that it was only a week ago that I posted waffles. I literally have not put my waffle iron away since I last made that particular recipe. Its a whole lot easier to make waffles when I don’t have to go digging the waffle iron out of the deep dark recesses of my downstairs closet!

First I was thinking I wanted to make a Belgian waffle, but then when reading the recipes I realized they called for yeast and rising time.  I didn’t want to wait.  So I found this recipe on allrecipes.com that separated the eggs, then folded the whites in.  I thought maybe this would be a good recipe to try.  It wasn’t a Belgian waffle but Grumpy did say that this recipe had more flavor than the last one I made.  Maybe next week I’ll get to the Belgian waffles.

I was hoping that because of the egg whites being folded into the batter that it would be a fluffier waffle but it really wasn’t.  The waffle wasn’t any thicker than the ones I made last week and I’m really curious why Grumpy thought they tasted “better” because all in all the ingredients were basically the same thing, just made differently.
