There's no point in ordering waffles at a restaurant from this point on knowing that Greg can make The Best Waffles Ever. For free. I mean, there is that small exchange of allowing him to make fun of me and guffaw at my infantile behavior, but then I get to eat DELICIOUS WAFFLES!!!! (I excuse myself from waffle-making duties because I don't have a waffle iron.)
What do The Best Waffles ever taste like? Lightly crisp. Lightly sweet. Lightly...light. The whipped egg whites turn what looks like a normal waffle into a crispy wheaty pillow laden with golden edges begging to be crunched through with your fork and full of pockets perfectly fit for blueberries and syrup and whatnot. It's beautifulllll. Never before had I encountered such a bliss-inducing waffle.
- APPROVED! By Kathy and Greg.
Three out of three Asians approve (Me being the third. Not some invisible Asian person.)
Greg didn't give me the recipe, but he said I should be able to find it with the magic of Google. So I Googled. ...And got a bunch of recipes that were similar, but not the same. This one from Recipezaar sounds most promising though.
Update: Here's the recipe!
Even though these waffles initially feel feather-light, they will, like any other food, eventually compact in your belly. We went through at least four of them. Or five. You lose count after a while.
