Make-ahead tip: This batter keeps nicely in the fridge and is great to have on hand in the morning, or even to make a waffle sundae after dinner. Serving tip: Top with apple butter and softened butter, plus a drizzle of honey. A good ratio of apple butter to whole butter is about 1 tablespoon of apple butter to 1 pat of butter.

  1. Combine warm milk and yeast; let stand for 5 minutes. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  2. In a large bowl, combine egg yolks, melted butter, agave or turbinado, salt, vanilla, and molasses. Stir in milk-yeast mixture. Sift in flours. Fold in egg whites. Cover batter with parchment paper and let stand in warm place (75˚–80˚) to let rise, about 1 hour.
  3. Heat a nonstick waffle iron and brush with sunflower oil. Toast batter in waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.
