 Ingredients List

  • 2 Egg whites
  • 3/4 c Confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 ts Vanilla
  • 1/8 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Flour
  • 4 tb Butter; melted & cooled


This is probably the oldest form of the waffle that we can find today. It
is actually a thin wafer affair, covered with a light waffle pattern. The
original irons came from France. Nordic Ware used to make such an iron, and
I have one. They are great fun to use but the market will be the market.
Nordic stopped making them due to lack of demand. I hope that this effort
will get them back in action. The recipe is from Nordic as well.

Beat the egg whites until stiff. Sift in the confectioners' sugar,
folding in very gently. Add the vanilla and salt, and then sift in the
flour, again folding in gently. Finally, fold in the melted and cooled

Place the iron on top of a gas flame at medium heat. Put one teaspoon of
batter on the heated iron and turn the iron two or three times on top of
the burner until the wafer is golden brown. It takes a little practice to
get these going but they are delicious and it is worth the effort.
