  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ sugar
  • 3 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs separated
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Combine flour sugar and baking powder into a medium bowl.
  • Using another bowl lightly beat egg yolks. Add milk, ricotta, butter and vanilla mixing well.
  • Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until well combined.
  • Beat the egg whites in another bowl till stiff peaks are formed then fold them into the batter.
  • Cook in a preheated waffle iron. Take waffles out before they brown. This should be about 4-8 min( depends on waffle iron). Taking them out before they brown ensures that they won’t overcook in the toaster. If you are eating them immediately allow to brown in waffle iron.
  • Place waffles on cookie sheet to cool. Once the waffles are cook, place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. After the waffles have frozen, package them in Ziploc storage bags and freeze. Freezing them first individually will help the waffles not stick together.
  • When you are ready to serve the waffles, pop the frozen waffles into the toaster and let them cook until they are warmed through and lightly crisped.
