2 cups all-purpose Flour
2 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 cups warm milk

Step 2: Whisk the eggs in large bowl until fluffy. Stir in the milk, vanilla and melting butter and continue to whisk until thoroughly combined or smooth (wet ingredients)
Step 3: Combine the dry and wet ingredients with rubber or wooden spatula to form a smooth batter.
Step 4: Preheat waffle maker. Once it’s hot, spray with non-stick cooking spray or just brush it up with melted butter using a kitchen basting brush.
Step 5: Gently dribble the batter onto the hot waffle plate and cook until it is golden brown. Remove the hot plate with a pair of tongs and serve hot.
Tip: Place the waffles on the baking rack in a single layer, after you remove them from the hot plate. This will prevent them from getting soggy.

To get a thin, crispy waffle, you can pour the batter thinly into the preheated waffle maker and cook longer until it becomes crisp. If it doesn’t get as crispy as you prefer, you can place them on a baking rack and bake inside a 250F (121 C) oven for fewer than 7 minutes.
By placing the waffle on a rack rather than directly on the sheet, you are letting the hot air circulate around the waffle to keep it crisp.
What makes a fluffy waffle lies on how the egg was incorporated during the mixing process. You would need to whip in more air into the mixture but it has to be done gently not to overwork the gluten and make your waffle tough.
On the other hand, you can whip egg whites to be foamy and fold it into your waffle batter. This makes the waffle super fluffy since the air bubbles get trapped inside the batter, giving the batter a spongy texture.
