  • Hi
    I have been looking for a great recipe for bubble waffles and this may be it. I just have a question . In the directions you do not state when to add the egg white. Can you clarify?

    Thank you

    • Hi there! Great question! I forgot to include that part in. But I’ve revised and added the egg white addition in. So, egg whites should be incorporated after all the ingredients have been mixed together. Take a look at the revised recipe. Hope it helps! Have fun with your Bubble Waffle making and let us know how they turned out!

      Yummily yours,
