Rum Waffles

Rum Waffles

The rum gives these waffles slightly a unique taste.  You can serve these delicious waffles for either breakfast or dessert.  Serve simply dusted with powdered sugar or spread with homemade preserves and topped with whipped cream. 


2 Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

2 Tablespoons Sugar

1 Cup Milk

3 Cups Whipping Cream

8 Egg Yolks

1/3 Cup Rum

1 1/4 Cups Melted Butter

4 Egg Whites

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

Butter To Grease The Waffle Iron

Preheat your waffle iron. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.  In a medium size bowl whip the egg whites until they form firm peaks. Set aside.  Add the milk to the flour mixture and stir slightly.  Add the cream, egg yolks and the rum.  Stir thoroughly after each addition.  Add the melted butter and stir.  Fold the egg whites into the batter.  Grease both sides of the waffle iron plates with butter.  Pour batter into the waffle iron making sure all of the holes are filled.  Close the waffle iron and cook until the waffles are nice and crisp.  Serve immediately with either powdered sugar or homemade preserves topped with whipped cream.  Makes 20 waffles.
