My favorite recipe for great tasting waffles is the one I found on the Pioneer Woman website. Perfect waffles every time. The texture has a slight crunch and is tender with a very slight vanilla flavor. Add some butter, syrup, and some chopped nuts. Tastes just as waffles should taste.
From Pioneer Woman
Special Equipment: Waffle Iron
2 cups All-purpose Flour
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup Sugar
1-1/2 cup Milk
2 whole Egg Yolks
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon (additional) Vanilla Extract
1 stick (1/2 Cup) Salted Butter, Melted
4 whole Egg Whites
Preheat the waffle iron to the regular setting.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, 2 egg yolks, and vanilla. Pour over the dry ingredients and very gently stir until halfway combined. Pour in the melted butter and continue mixing very gently until combined.
In a separate bowl (or using a mixer), beat the egg whites with a whisk until stiff. Slowly fold them into the batter, stopping short of mixing them all the way through.
Scoop the batter into your waffle iron in batches and cook according to its directions (lean toward being a little deep golden and crisp!) Remove and serve immediately with softened butter and warm syrup.
