Ingredients:  
2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder

4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat waffle iron. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a second bowl, using a wooden spoon, bet together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow. Add the vanilla extract, melted butter and milk. Whisk to combine.

Combine the egg mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until blended. Do not over mix - there will be lumps.

In a small bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Do not over mix - again.

Coat waffle iron with cooking spray and pour batter onto iron. Do not over fill. Cook until golden brown.

Personal Notes:
I cannot take credit for this recipe, since it belongs to Emeril Lagasse. However, I tried many recipes and do find these to be the tastiest.

I freeze the leftovers after cooking, then defrost in the microwave for one minute, then put them in the toaster.
