Total time: 45 minutes | Makes 16 waffles.
  • 1 1/2 cups corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 egg whites
  • Nonstick cooking spray or oil, for waffle iron
  • Powdered sugar, for serving

Step 1Cook the corn in the butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat until tender, about 3 minutes.

Step 2Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the buttermilk and corn, along with any remaining butter in the pan, until just blended.

Step 3Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until stiff but not dry. Fold the egg whites into the batter just until blended.

Step 4Spray a waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray or brush with oil, then heat. Pour about 1 1/4 cups batter into the iron. Close the lid and cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove the waffle from the iron and break into 4 sections. Repeat with remaining batter. Sprinkle the waffles with powdered sugar.

Note: Use a four-waffle iron with a nonstick coating.
