  • 3 scallions, minced
  • 1 tsp. chopped thyme

  • 1 1⁄2 cups cake flour
  • 2 1⁄2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 3 large eggs, separated

  • Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and scallions, and cook until tender and slightly golden, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, add thyme and parsley, and set aside to cool.
  • Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions. Triple-sift flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt into a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Combine the egg yolks, garlic mixture, and buttermilk. Whisk together thoroughly.
