• 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs – separated
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 30 g melted butter


  1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  2. 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.
  3. Fold in the melted butter. Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks, and using a metal spoon fold them into the batter.
  4. Heat the waffle iron and cook the waffles according to the appliance manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. If you don’t have a waffle iron then you can make ‘poffles’ – cook the batter in a pan like crispy pikelets.
  6. 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.
