Ingredients

FOR THE BLOOD ORANGE GLAZE

  • 3 tablespoon fresh blood orange juice
  • ½ cup powdered sugar - plus more as needed

FOR THE WAFFLES

Instructions

FOR THE BLOOD ORANGE GLAZE

  • In a small bowl whisk together the blood orange juice with 1/2 cup powdered sugar until smooth. If the glaze is too runny add additional powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Set aside.

FOR THE WAFFLES

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl, first whisk together the dry ingredients- the flour, cornstarch, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the buttermilk, whole milk, and vegetable oil. Beat in the egg yolk. Set aside.
  • Add the separated egg white to a separate bowl and use a hand mixer to beat the egg white into soft, fluffy, peaks (approximately 3 minutes). Add the sugar to the egg white and continue to beat until egg white becomes firm and glossy. Beat in the vanilla. Set aside.
  • Add the liquid ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and gently mix until just incorporated. Add the beaten egg white to the wet ingredients and use a rubber spatula to gently fold everything together. Mix just until incorporated.
  • Preheat a waffle maker (square or round) and lightly oil with nonstick cooking spray. Pour approximately 1 cup of the batter into the center of the waffle iron and close the lid. Cook until inside is fully cooked and outside is golden and crispy (approximately 3-4 minutes). Transfer waffles to rack in preheated oven to keep warm. Repeat.
  • Top waffles with blood orange glaze, fresh sliced oranges, and whipped cream, if desired.
