In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking soda and salt.
Make a well in the middle and add the egg yolks and the milk and whisk in gradually incorporating the flour from around the sides to form a lump free batter.
Fold in the melted butter. Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks, and using a metal spoon fold them into the batter.
Heat the waffle iron and cook the waffles according to the appliance manufacturer’s instructions.
If you don’t have a waffle iron then you can make ‘poffles’ – cook the batter in a pan like crispy pikelets.
Top with maple syrup, honey or lemon curd and/or your favourite fresh or cooked fruit for a weekend treat that’s super easy and delicious.
Leftover waffles can be frozen and reheated in a warm oven. If you have left over batter, cook it but leave the waffles slightly under done. Freeze and use the toaster to reheat without overcooking them.
