  2. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl.

  4. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites almost to soft peaks; sprinkle in sugar and beat until whites are firm and glossy.
  5. Pour buttermilk mixture into flour mixture and whisk until just combined.
  6. Gently fold in egg whites until just incorporated.
  7. Add batter to a hot waffle iron (according to your manufacturer's directions) and cook until golden brown.
