Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups water, divided

  • 2 1/4

    teaspoons active dry yeast (one packet)

  • 3

    cups sifted flour

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 3

    large eggs, separated plus 1 egg white

  • 1/3

    cup sugar

  • 1 1/2

    cups whole milk

  • 8

    tablespoons unsalted butter - melted and cooled

  • 2

    teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 2

    teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions

Heat 1/2 of the water to lukewarm, 105 -110 F. Dissolve the yeast in the water with a pinch of the sugar from the recipe; let stand 5 to 10 minutes, until the mixture begins to foam. Put the flour and salt into a large bowl; stir to blend and reserve. Add the egg yolks, one of the egg whites, and remaining sugar to the yeast mixture; stir to blend. Add the remaining water, milk, melted butter, oil, and vanilla; stir until the mixture is smooth. Stir the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and beat until the mixture is smooth. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites gently into the batter. Let the batter stand for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cook as directed in your waffle maker.
