  • 2 cups all-purpose einkorn flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs, separated


  1. Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and then place a baking sheet in the oven.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together milk, yogurt, butter, and egg yolks.
  5. Whisk flour mixture into wet ingredients until smooth.
  6. In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a wire whisk attachment, beat egg whites until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold egg whites into waffle batter until just mixed.
  7. For large Belgian waffles, spread 1 cup of the batter nearly to the edges of the waffle iron. For regular waffles, use 1/2 cup of batter.
  8. Bake on medium-high for approximately 4 minutes, or until waffles are deeply golden and crisp.
  9. Serve immediately with maple syrup, or keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.
