Gaufres Grand-Mere Bocuse (Grandmother Bocuse's Waffles)

Serves 8


  • 3-1/3 cups flour, unsifted (500 g)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (15 g)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter, melted (300 g)
  • 1 cup milk (250 ml)
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup rum (optional) (60 ml)


  1. Mix the flour, sugar, salt, egg yolks, and melted butter together in a large bowl. Add the milk, a little at a time, to thin the mixture down; the batter should be fairly liquid - add a little water if necessary. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until they hold their shape and fold them into the batter very thoroughly. Add the baking powder at the last moment and also the rum, if you are using it.
  2. Grease and heat the waffle iron. pour a generous spoonful of the batter into the middle, close the iron, and cook for not more than 2 minutes.
  3. The waffle should be cooked through and a pale golden color. Serve it sprinkled with sugar or with honey, jam, or cream whichever you prefer.
