Fast Buttermilk Waffles

this recipe will have you knee deep in dirty dishes

The other day I decided to make pancakes.  The next morning like baby birds three mouths chirped, "The pancakes were so yummy... it's nice to have a hot breakfast... I think I did better in school...waffles?"  How can I say no?  The recipes should only take 25 minutes.  ehmmmm... what they neglected to leave out is the clean up time.

2 cups of all purpose flour
2T corn meal
1t salt
1/2t baking soda
2 large eggs seperated

a pinch of cream of tarter
