Pastry for crispy thin waffles (recipe with pictures)

thin crispy waffles

Thin crispy waffles are very special topic for me. I like them so much, that I wanted to buy waffle maker all my life, but I didn't because I thought that this will bring me at least 5 kilos, as I will eat them from dust till dawn all the time. In reality even when I got my precious waffle maker it didn't happen like that because I am too lazy to make them so often. Another question was to find the right recipe and eventually I did. It took me about a year, but you've got an amazing opportunity to learn this recipe of crispy thin waffles right away! I suggest you to use it.

So, first of all you need a waffle maker (for making thin waffles - I don't know if recipe suits for thick ones).

Now we can talk about recipe of waffles itself

To get about 15-20 waffles you need

125 g of soft butter or margarine
130g of sugar
3 eggs
100 g of potato starch (makes them crispy)
100 g of flour
1/2 cup of milk
1/3 tea spoon of salt

Recipe is very easy, the most difficult thing you need to do is divide egg whites from the yolks and whip egg whites with half of sugar. Other sugar mix with yolks, butter, add salt and milk, when mixture is homogeneous - add potato starch and flour. Now you should add whipped egg whites and mix everything WITH A SPOON!
That's all, now butter the waffle maker while it's cold, warm it up for about 3-5 minutes and make waffles. Don't forget that you should put waffle pastry only on the central part of waffle maker! This thin waffles are amazing with whipped cream, caramel, melted chocolate or condensed milk and of course you can experiment with fillings.

p.s. Remember - if you want to give shape to your waffle, you can do it only right away, after just some seconds it will be an impossible thing to do.
