Waffles

These waffles are incredible!  They are super light and fluffy!  I especially love them cooked in my Belgium waffle iron.  I love to freeze them and then heat them in the toaster when I'm in a rush.  I love them with strawberry jam on top!


4 cups featherlight flour
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp salt
1 T sugar
2 T baking powder
6 eggs (separated)
½ cup canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce
3 1/2 cups milk

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Separate eggs in 2 other bowls; whites in one bowl, and yolks in the other.  Put about 1/2 cup oil into a 1 cup measuring cup.  Spoon applesauce into the oil until it fills the cup.  Add it to the egg yolks. Add milk also into the yolks and stir until combined.

Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk. (The mixture will seem runny at first, but as it’s mixed the xanthan gum will start to thicken it fairly quickly.)

Beat egg whites with a mixer until stiff peaks form and fold into batter.

 Cook in hot waffle iron.
