Belgian Waffles (with Maple Syrup)

One of my favourite childhood memories is waking up on a summer morning at the cottage, to the smell of homemade waffles. Nobody makes better waffles than my mother, that is a fact. They're perfectly crispy on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside, and best topped with real maple syrup and fresh berries. I was recently given a bottle of Lake of Bays Maple Syrup, and love pairing it with oatmeal, pancakes, but especially waffles. It is light in flavour, and perfectly sweet, the aroma alone will have you wanting to drown your breakfasts in real maple flavour. 


1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups milk
2 egg whites

In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the vegetable oil and egg yolks. Gently stir, slowly adding in the milk. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gently fold the whites into the waffle mixture - making sure not to over mix. Pour a scoopful into the heated waffle and cook according to your iron's instructions.
