  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • cups milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup half stick butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Pre-heat your waffle iron to its hottest setting.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Separate the eggs. Save the whites in a glass mixing bowl and the yolks in another.
  • Melt the butter over a low heat, then remove it and let it cool.
  • Beat the yolks thoroughly. Whisk in the milk, oil, melted butter, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  • Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff. Then add the sugar and continue mixing until you get nice stiff peaks.
  • Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and mix gently until combined.
  • Use a rubber spatula to gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter — and again, be careful not to overmix.
  • Spray both surfaces of your waffle iron with cooking spray.
  • Pour batter onto the iron and close it.
  • Cook until golden brown and crispy. Serve hot.
