A variety of grains produces an intriguingly wholesome flavor in these tendercrisp waffles. You may purchase the various flours from bulk bins and can often zero in on organic flours. Accompany with maple syrup or whipped honey butter and partner with a fresh fruit salad for a healthful way to start the day.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup barley flour
  • ¼ cup corn flour or cornmeal
  • ¼ cup rye flour
  • ¼ cup buckwheat flour
  • ¼ cup toasted wheat germ
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • ¼ cup canola oil or unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • Maple syrup, Blueberry Sauce, or Swiss Whipped Honey Butter for topping

Instructions

Preheat a waffle iron. In a bowl, whisk together the flours, wheat germ, baking powder, cardamom, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft, glossy peaks form. In another bowl, beat or whisk together the egg yolks, buttermilk, oil, and honey. Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Fold in the egg whites.

Spoon or pour about 1 cup batter onto the hot iron. Close the lid. Bake until the waffle is golden brown, about 4 minutes. Remove with a fork to a warm plate. Serve at once or keep warm on a baking sheet in a 200°F oven. Repeat with the remaining batter. Top with maple syrup, Blueberry Sauce, or Swiss Whipped Honey Butter.
