10 waffles


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 5 tablespoons powdered buttermilk

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup milk

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • 2 egg yolks

  • ¼ cup butter, melted

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, powdered buttermilk, baking powder, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, whip the cream using an electric mixer; stir in milk, egg yolks, and melted butter. Stir the milk mixture into the dry ingredients until smooth. In a clean glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites and chocolate chips into the batter using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon.

  2. Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Spoon batter onto the hot iron, and cook until there is no longer steam coming out and the waffles are light brown.
