I've used this recipe for years and it makes light waffles without beating 
whites and is great for pancakes too:

Ben's Pancakes or Waffles

1 1/4  C.     Flour
1      T.     Baking Powder
1      T.     Sugar
1/2    tsp.   Salt
1      C.     Milk
2      T.     melted shortening  or Crisco Oil
1             Egg

Sift dry ingredients.  Mix milk, egg and shortening in bowl and stir into 
dry ingredients until just blended.  Bake on a hot griddle (I find an 
electric griddle has a better controlled temperature) and turns out 7 
wonderful pancakes, more than enough for two or just enough for three persons.

To make Waffles:

Increase the amount of milk by a small amount of milk - maybe two or three 
tablespoons and blend thoroughly.  Makes 3 or 4 waffles, depending on the 
size of your waffle maker.

Received this recipe from a friend who was a doctor and an excellent 
cook.  This was his breakfast specialty when we came to visit.
