Club Soda Waffles


Makes 4 large waffles
2 cups biscuit baking mix (such as Bisquick)
1 large egg, slightly beaten
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/3 cups club soda



1. Place the baking mix in a bowl or wide pitcher.
2. With a fork, beat the egg with the oil and stir the liquid into the baking mix. Gradually add the club soda, mixing until all the baking mix is moistened and a slightly thick batter (like buttermilk) forms.
3. Let batter rest for 5 minutes. Heat a waffle iron.
4. Pour about one-fourth of the batter into the iron. Close the lid and bake until any steam subsides and the waffle browns, about 2 minutes. When done, the waffle and iron should separate easily. Repeat with remaining batter.
Note: Use all the batter immediately. Leftover waffles may be frozen. To use, defrost and then reheat in a toaster.
