Waffles not getting crispy

haybarn564 | Mar 26, 201707:27 AM     12

I am pretty much a novice when it comes to cooking, but I've been experimenting with waffle recipes for my Belgian waffle maker. I've tried every recipe I can find online, all of which are pretty much slight variations of each other, with the goal of making a waffle that is thick, crispy on the outside, and light on the inside. I've tried loads of recipes with 3 different waffle makers now (Villaware, Cuisinart, and most recently Presto), and still cannot seem to get a crispy exterior.

Please tell me what I am doing wrong or what I can do differently to get that crispy exterior texture I crave?!?

Here is an example of the most recent recipe I tried:

1 3/4 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour (I subbed in some cornstarch)
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 large eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups milk, almond milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk
2 teaspoons cider vinegar or plain vinegar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and at room temperature
1 teaspoons vanilla extract, optional

Thanks for any help you can give!
