|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|THE PERFECT WAFFLE|
2 cups flour, measured after sifting
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
3 rounded teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups milk
1 stick butter, melted
2 tablespoons Crisco
Sift flour and measure. Sift again with: flour, salt, baking powder.
Beat the egg yolks with the sugar, then milk, and pour slowly into dry ingredients, stirring to prevent lumps.
Stir in melted shortening, beating only until batter is mixed (some lumps will remain), then fold in the two beaten whites.
Bake each waffle on a piping hot iron approximately 4 minutes.
NOTE: You may substitute buttermilk for the milk. Reduce the baking powder to 2 teaspoons and add 1/3 teaspoon baking soda instead.
Variations: In recipes where the waffle will be served with savory accompaniments, such as Chicken a La King, reduce sugar by 1 tablespoon. In dessert recipes, add a teaspoon of vanilla.
