waffle iron


1 3/4 cups buckwheat flour, sifted, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 egg yolks, beaten, 1 cup half-half, 1 cup buttermilk, 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening, melted, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 egg whites, beaten to meringue, 2 tablespoons sugar.

In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients together then sift them at least 3-times, set aside. Make a hollowed out the center in the dry ingredient bowl.  In a separate bowl combine the egg yolks, half-half, buttermilk, and cooled melted shortening; add to the dry ingredient and stir together.  Fold in the egg whites.  Get out the waffle iron, plug up and allow to heat up, spray with cooking oil.  Preheat the waffle iron for 5 minutes to 425 degrees.  Don’t be afraid to play with the temperature and doneness until to get the exact doneness you want.
