    1. Preheat your Belgian waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour and baking powder. Add the granulated sugar and mix well.
    3. In a separate bowl, combine the cold egg yolks, milk, melted butter, and pure vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
    4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; some lumps are okay.
    5. In another clean bowl, beat the cold egg whites until stiff peaks form.
    6. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter until fully incorporated. This step will make your waffles light and airy.
    7. Grease your preheated waffle iron with a small amount of butter or non-stick cooking spray.
    8. Pour enough batter onto the waffle iron to cover the waffle grid, without overfilling.
    9. Close the waffle iron and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the waffles are golden brown and crisp.
    10. Carefully remove the waffles from the iron and serve them immediately with your favorite toppings like fresh berries, whipped cream, or maple syrup.
    Pro Tip

    Separate and Beat Eggs: Separate the cold eggs into yolks and whites. Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form before gently folding them into the batter. This step adds to the waffle’s fluffiness.
    Use Quality Vanilla: Invest in high-quality pure vanilla extract for the best flavor. It makes a noticeable difference.
    Melted Butter Temperature: Ensure the melted butter has cooled slightly before adding it to the batter. You don’t want it too hot, as it can cook the eggs.
    Preheat Your Waffle Iron: Make sure your waffle iron is properly preheated to achieve that crisp, golden exterior.
