  4. Gently fold the egg whites to batter.

  6. Pour about ¼ – ? cup for each waffle. (I use a large serving ladle and drop the batter in the middle of the waffle iron).
  7. Cook 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and transfer to oven to keep warm. (set oven to 200?/93?)
