ok so i bought a waffle iron this week (frivolous i know but who can resist the lure of fresh waffles?) so anyways, i used it tonight for the first time and it was goooooood i need a bit more practice but i'd also like a better recipe, or recipes as i just used one that came with it and it seems a bit egg and butter heavy and didn't puff up as much as i'd hoped
so, wanna help a girl out and suggest some recipes? cheers, and sorry, today's didn't last long enough for photos
and i don't have an electric mixer so i have to mix by hand if that's an issue in waffle making? i dunno, i'm sort of new to waffle making

Well, here's a recipe that I have been using for thirty years, and it hasn't failed me yet.

3 C flour                                           
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
4 beaten egg whites
4 beaten egg yolks
2 C milk
4 tbsp olive oil

Combine all dry ingredients.  Stir in egg yolks.  Add milk and oil, stirring until batter is lumpy.  Fold in egg whites.  Bake in hot waffle iron.  Remove with a fork and brush with butter.  Makes about 8 to 10 waffles.

You can cut this recipe in half or even in fourth.  I have made enough batter for two waffles before.

I got one for Christmas a couple of years ago, and I tried a couple of recipes, and I loved the one I will post at the end here - the cornmeal adds a bit of crunch, and the lemon zest is so nice and fresh in it.  You don't need an electric mixer, if you can beat the egg whites by hand.  Beaten egg whites, gently folded in, help to make the waffles light and fluffy.  I included the whole recipe, but I skip the Strawberry Rhubarb part of it.  I also get more than 6 waffles out of the batch.

Lemon Cornmeal Waffles with Strawberry Rhubarb Syrup
Yield:  6

Strawberry Rhubarb Syrup
2 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
2 cups quartered fresh strawberries
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup white corn syrup
1 cup water
1 x vanilla bean

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 x large eggs, separated

1 cup whipping cream
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup quartered fresh strawberries
icing sugar for dusting
To Assemble
For Strawberry Rhubarb Syrup, bring diced rhubarb, 1 cup of strawberries, sugar, corn syrup, water and scraped seeds from vanilla bean up to a simmer. Gently simmer for 10 minutes until rhubarb is tender and colour is extracted. Remove from heat and strain. Stir in remaining quartered strawberries while warm and let cool. Syrup can be prepared up to a week in advance and stored refrigerated.
For waffles, stir flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and salt to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk buttermilk, oil and egg yolks to combine. Whisk into flour mixture and stir until just blended (just like when making pancakes, do not overmix a few lumps are OK). Whip egg whites until they hold a soft peak when beaters are lifted and fold gently into waffle batter. Lightly grease a preheated waffle iron and spoon about 1/3 cup of batter onto iron (for a 4-x-4-inch waffle). Close and cook until steam from the waffles dies away, about 4 minutes (depending on your iron). Remove waffles and place on an ovenproof dish, cover, and hold in a low (250 F) oven until ready to serve. Waffles are best served fresh, but if preparing in advance, let waffles cool, freeze, then warm uncovered in a 300 F oven for 20 minutes when ready to serve.
To assemble, whip cream to soft peaks and stir in sugar. Arrange 2 waffles on a plate and dollop cream on top. Drizzle syrup over, top with quartered strawberries and dust with icing sugar.

You can make these in a regiular waffle iron and freeze the leftovers.  You will never want store bought waffles again! http://itsmellsgoodinhere.blogspot.com/2009/03/yummy-yummy-belgian-waffles.html
