Papa Eric's Waffles

The girls love Papa Eric's waffles more than any other so I finally remembered to ask him for the recipe.  I didn't try to make it healthier by soaking the batter because I was afraid I would ruin the recipe, but I did use half whole grain flour and half unbleached all purpose flour, and I also substituted my sucanat for white sugar and used half butter and half coconut oil for the oil.  (I tripled the recipe and didn't want to use up my stash of either oil at once.)  My girls agreed that they were the best waffles we had made and I freezed half of them for easy breakfasts on school mornings.

1 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 egg yolks beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups milk
3 egg whites beaten stiff

Directions: Measure dry ingredients into mixing bowl. Blend.  Combine egg yolks and milk.  Stir into dry ingredients.  Stir in cooking oil. Carefully fold in egg whites.  Do not over-mix. Pour approximately 2/3 cup batter onto preheated grid.  Close and bake
