    1. Lightly grease and preheat a waffle baker according to manufacturer's directions. 

    2. Separate eggs; place yolks in a medium bowl and whites in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
    3. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, malted milk powder, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      Extra waffles? Not a problem! Cool leftover waffles to room temperature and place in an airtight container or individual plastic bags for freezing. For a quick breakfast pop extra waffles in the toaster.
