Gertrude's Waffles

Everyone loved my grandmother's homemade waffles.  They have the most distinctively sweet aroma.  Serve with pure Pennsylvania maple syrup and butter.

5 eggs separated
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
buttermilk to suit

In medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff.  Set aside.  In small bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and lemony in color.  Slowly add cooled, melted butter into the sugar mixture.

Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.  Add the egg mixture.  Batter will be very stiff.  Add enough buttermilk to make a pourable batter.

Finally, fold in the beaten egg whites.

Pour into a hot waffle iron, cook and enjoy!
