Serving Up {Breakfast}: Dr. D's Belgium Waffles

There are hundreds of waffle recipes out there and I'm convinced that 99% of them are a variation of one original recipe.    Flour, egg, oil, and milk - not a lot of variation.  Until this recipe.  Oh, it has all those ingredients you would expect to find, but it also has apple cider vinegar and almond extract.  Crazy and unexpected!  But oh so good!  You do have to be willing to dirty a few extra dishes to make the most out of this recipe, but I vouch that these waffles are worth it.  They bake up so crispy and airy - they practically melt in your mouth upon first bite.

If you are looking for something to shake up your waffle routine, this is a pretty good place to start.

1 cup milk (I use whole)
1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar

Mix together the milk and vinegar and set aside.

1 stick butter, melted (I have used 1/2 stick and not noticed any decrease in yumminess)
2 egg yolks
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. almond extract

Blend the butter, egg yolks, brown sugar and extract together.  Add the milk.

1 cup + 1 Tbs. flour
4 tsp. baking powder

Sift the flour and baking powder together.  Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and stir until well moistened.

2 egg whites, whipped well

Fold whipped egg whites into batter.

Cook as you would normally would, following your waffle iron instructions.
