Brown Butter Waffles
Makes about 6-7 waffles
(recipe adapted slightly from The Craft of Baking Cookbook)
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup, plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 large eggs, separated
- unsalted butter- for the waffle iron
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Continue cooking until the butter turns brown and has a nutty fragrance, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk and the egg yolks. Whisk the wet ingredients together, gently working them into the dry ingredients until just combined. Add the browned butter and whisk until fully absorbed.
In a bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks with a hand mixer. Gently fold the whites into the batter in two additions. Lightly brush the waffle iron with butter and cook the waffles according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Top with your favorite fruit & serve!
