Make a double batch of these light and airy waffles for eating and for freezing. They won't last long!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups cherries (about ½ pound)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Halve and pit the cherries and place in a bowl.
  2. Add the honey, stir to mix evenly and let stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes to allow the cherries to release some of their juice.
  3. Preheat a waffle iron.
  4. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the milk solids in the bottom of the pan turn a toasty brown, about 3 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a bowl and let cool slightly.
  6. Add the milk, egg yolks and vanilla, and whisk until combined.
  7. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the milk mixture and whisk just until combined (a few small lumps are okay).
  8. In another bowl, using a clean whisk or a handheld mixer, whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Scoop the whites onto the batter and, using the whisk, gently fold them in evenly.
  9. Spoon the batter into your waffle maker (sprayed with nonstick spray), and cook until the waffle is golden brown, usually about 4 minutes.
  10. Serve the waffles piping hot with a big spoonful of the cherries.
