Buttermilk waffles are the perfect Mother’s Day breakfast dish. I can’t imagine any Mother who would not be happy seeing these crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside waffles on her plate. Add a little butter and some maple syrup and you will see a big smile on your Mom’s face!
These waffles are easy to make and if you have little ones, you will be happy to know that they can help you out in the kitchen. Let them crack the eggs (in a separate bowl in case you need to pick out shells!) or they can stir the batter. I would keep them away from the waffle iron. I am pretty good in the kitchen and our waffle maker likes to “bite” me every time I get near it!
Buttermilk waffles can be topped with any type of syrup, a strawberry sauce, or just cut up fruit. Since this waffle recipe doesn’t have sugar in it, you can use it for savory topping also. Personally , I love a pat of butter and nothing else!
- 2 large eggs
- 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, buttermilk, melted butter or margarine and vanilla. In another bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. Combine the wet and dry ingredients just until almost smooth.
- Spray your waffle iron with a non-stick cooking spray before preheating it. For an 8-inch round waffle iron, use about 1/3 cup batter. For square iron, use about 1/4 cup per side. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the iron stops steaming.
- Keep warm on a plate in a 200 F. degree oven
When a batch of waffles is finished cooking, you can place them on a plate that is in a warm oven (about 200 degrees). I always double this recipe and freeze any leftovers. I place 2 of the waffles in a freezer bag and pop them in the freezer for those days when I am in a rush, but want something more than a bowl of cereal.
These waffles cost less than $1.00 to make and taste so much better than the prepared waffles. That is a big bonus if you are on a budget.
Here are couple of recipes from my blogging friends. I hope you stop by and check them out!
