Storybook Waffles

Mike used to make what he called "Storybook Waffles" for the kids almost every weekend growing up. That's why it was such a treat to have him make them for his grandson this last weekend! They are fluffy and delicious, and the perfect special treat. 

3 eggs, separated 
2 tablespoons lavender sugar (Order HERE)
2 cups buttermilk 
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

(If you sub milk for butter milk, replace your baking soda with 2 tsp baking powder instead.) 

Fresh strawberries
Fresh whipped cream 
Sprinkle of lavender sugar 

We always use this fun circus waffle iron. It makes breakfast just that much more of a celebration.

In a medium sized bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Add sugar and beat 30 seconds longer, set aside. Beat egg yolks and milk together in a large bowl. Add flour, melted butter, salt and baking powder or soda, mix well. Gently fold the egg whites into the flour. Cook in a preheated waffle iron. Top with strawberries and cream and then enjoy!
