Perfection Waffles Recipe

History of the Recipe:
Waffles have been enjoyed for centuries and have a rich history that dates back to ancient Greece. The word "waffle" is believed to have originated from the Dutch word "wafel," which referred to a wafer-like pastry cooked between two metal plates. The recipe for Perfection Waffles has been passed down through generations, and it continues to be loved by many today. This recipe combines simple ingredients to create fluffy and delicious waffles that are perfect for breakfast or brunch.

Fun Facts:
- Waffles have been a popular dish in Europe since the Middle Ages, and they were often served as a sweet treat during festive occasions.
- The modern waffle iron, with its distinctive honeycomb pattern, was invented in the 1800s and became a staple in households around the world.
- In the United States, waffles gained popularity in the early 1900s when they were introduced at the World's Fair in St. Louis.

Ingredients:
- 4 cups of flour
- 2 teaspoonfuls of baking soda
- 1 teaspoonful of salt
- 3 fresh eggs
- 3-1/2 cups of sour milk or sour buttermilk
- 1/2 cup of sour cream
- 1 teaspoonful of melted butter

Instructions:
1. Begin by sifting together the flour, baking soda, and salt four times. This step ensures that the dry ingredients are well combined and free of any lumps.

2. Separate the three fresh eggs, placing the yolks in an earthenware mixing bowl. Beat the yolks well with a spoon until they become smooth and creamy.

3. Add the sour milk or sour buttermilk and sour cream to the mixing bowl containing the beaten egg yolks. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.

4. Pour the melted butter into the mixture and continue stirring until everything is thoroughly incorporated.

5. Gradually add the sifted flour and baking soda to the mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients together to form a smooth batter. Be careful not to overmix, as this can lead to dense waffles.

6. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they become stiff peaks. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter, taking care to maintain the light and airy texture.

7. Preheat a waffle iron and lightly grease it with cooking spray or melted butter. Pour a ladleful of the batter onto the hot iron, spreading it evenly to cover the entire surface.

8. Close the waffle iron and cook the waffle until golden brown and crispy. The cooking time will vary depending on your waffle iron, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions for guidance.

9. Once cooked, remove the waffle from the iron and serve it immediately. The waffles can be enjoyed plain or with a variety of toppings. You can butter the waffles and sprinkle sugar on top, or serve them with a saucer containing a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Alternatively, a small jug of maple syrup can be served alongside the waffles for a sweet and indulgent treat.

10. The recipe yields twelve waffles, perfect for a large gathering or for freezing leftovers for later consumption. To reheat frozen waffles, simply pop them in the toaster or oven until warmed through.
