Ingredients

Salted Honey Butter and Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 2 teaspoons good-quality honey
  • Pinch of flaky sea salt
  • 1 peach (sliced, as garnish)
  • Pure maple syrup (as garnish)

Very Crispy Waffles:

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups buttermilk (shaken)
  • 2 large egg yolks (1 egg white reserved)
  • 12 tbls unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Egg White:

  • 2 large egg white
  • 6 tablespoons white sugar

Instructions

To Make the Salted Honey Butter:

  • To a small bowl, add the softened butter, honey and salt. Mash it together until smooth and combined. Give it a taste and add more salt, if you like. Set aside.

To Make the Crispy Waffles:

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Place a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet and place it in the oven. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, corn starch, salt, baking powder and baking soda. 
  • In a large measuring cup, whisk the wet ingredients together. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, using a hand-mixer, beat the egg whites until foamy. Add the sugar and continue beating until medium, glossy peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the batter until just combined.
  • Every waffle iron is different so you may have to sacrifice a waffle or two to get the hang of it.
  • Cook the batter according to your waffle iron’s instructions. Mine cooked in about 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the waffles to a plate to be eaten immediately, or place in the preheated oven to keep warm while you make the remaining waffles.
  • Top waffles with a dollop of honey butter, a few sliced peaches or other fruit and serve with maple syrup.
