Mum's Gaufrettes (Small waffles)

I can't make waffles for the simple reason that I don't own a waffle iron. We used to make them so many times at home, the normal waffles and the small, thicker ones, called Gaufrettes.
My Mum made some the other day and sent me the recipes and the pictures for the blog :-)
So here is the very easy recipe small waffles:

500grplain flour
250gr butter
250gr caster sugar
11gr of baking powder (this is levure chimique in french)
1 pinch of salt
1/2 glass of milk
4 eggs
Melt the butter and the sugar togather, add the milk, and leave it to cool. Mix in a bowl the flour, salt, baking powder, the 4 egg yolks and add it to the butter-sugar-milk mix.Then beat the eggswhites until stiff, and add them to the mixture. Leave it to rest for about 1hr. 
Bake the waffles in a waffle iron (1 waffle= 1 tablespoon of the mix)
Et voila :-)
